Albemarle (former Rockwood Lithium) joined the Industriepark Höchst community in October 2013. As the world's leading manufacturer of lithium compounds and other special metal compounds, it has benefited heavily from skyrocketing demand for lithium-ion batteries.
R&D, marketing and executive management functions as well as sales Europe are now housed in 6,730 m² of leased office and laboratory space in the multi-purpose laboratory building G 879 under a lease with an initial term of 15 years. Infraserv Höchst invested EUR five million to completely remodel the offices and adapt the laboratories to Albemarle Lithium's specifications. The site operator won a EUR 600,000 contract to design and install special fixtures in the offices as well.
