LANXESS Corporation Receives Three Outstanding Awards

Manufacturer of the Year: Sustainability, Top Places to Work and Best Places to Work Awards given to LANXESS Corporation

LANXESS Corporation, a speciality chemicals company headquartered in Findlay Township, announced today that it was recently recognized with three distinctions: Manufacturer of the Year, Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania and Top Places to Work.  


On December 1, 2012, the Pittsburgh Business Times awarded LANXESS Corporation with the Manufacturer of the Year Award: Sustainability, which recognizes top Pittsburgh companies in manufacturing. LANXESS Corporation was chosen for its dedication to both environmental compatibility and social responsibility in the production of more than 3,000 products.


Also on December 1, LANXESS Corporation ranked #33 in the large company category for the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania, and was the only large company from Pittsburgh to win. This honor recognizes companies that exemplify what it takes to create an outstanding work environment through dedication to employee growth and satisfaction.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette also honored LANXESS Corporation in October with a Pittsburgh Top Places to Work Award, which recognized 85 companies within the region. This award is dependent on employee opinion derived from workplace practices surveys.

Randy Dearth, President & CEO of LANXESS Corporation, feels that the winning streak his company is experiencing has everything to do with happy and motivated employees, “We have always been dedicated to our people and our processes. These awards let us know that our people feel appreciated and our processes make sense.”


LANXESS is a leading specialty chemicals company with sales of EUR 8.8 billion in 2011 and currently around 16,800 employees in 30 countries. The company is at present represented at 49 production sites worldwide. The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacturing and marketing of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals. LANXESS is a member of the leading sustainable indices Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World and FTSE4Good.
