According to the company, more than 80% of H.C. Starck’s sales are made from outside Germany and the company plans to increase international activities over the coming years.

“For an international company such as H C Starck, proximity to customers and suppliers is a central factor in maintaining its competitiveness. With the new branch close to the second largest airport in Germany, it will be easier and quicker for our international business partners to get to us. In addition, we will be able to press ahead with our international expansion quickly and efficiently, and improve our connections to our 30 locations and representatives across the world,” said H C Starck CEO  Dr Andreas Meier.

The company’s registered office, production site, and technology and research centre will remain in Goslar, with plans to invest €10 million in the site over the next few years.
