The LEHVOSS Corporate Group

Founded in 1894 as a trading firm for chemical and mineral specialties, the focus of our parent company Lehmann&Voss&Co. was initially for many decades on the home market (Germany). Starting in 1990, the rock-solid foundation there was used as the basis to internationalize the company, with the goal of offering products and services across Europe. Today the LEHVOSS Corporate Group operates subsidiaries in key European markets, each staffed with local specialists, even as we look to continue our expansion through additional national subsidiaries across Europe.

In 2013 the successful series of LUVOCOM® modified high-performance thermoplastics has been unveiled in the USA through the group company LEHVOSS North America, LLC and in China through LEHVOSS (Shanghai) Chemical Trading Co. Ltd.

The growing importance of the Chinese procurement market led to the establishment of offices in Shanghai and Dalian.

The LEHVOSS corporate group (not counting equity holdings) employed 637 workers in 2018, earning 384 million € in revenues.
