Following its acquisition of Chemtura, chemicals company Lanxess has revised its organizational structure. Rubber Additives Business (RAB) and Colorant Additives Business (CAB) segments now both belong to Lanxess’ Rhein Chemie business unit, the company says. The lubricant and flame retardant additives business has been transferred to Lanxess’s Additives business unit.

Lanxess plans to adopt a more targeted approach with this reorganization. The unit will in the future cover specialty business with active ingredient compounds, specialty chemicals and processing aids for the rubber, plastics and colorants industries.

‘The two business lines have similar requirements and the realignment caters to our specialized business, which sometimes involves small volumes,’ said Philipp Junge, been head of the Rhein Chemie business unit.
