We are the service company responsible for the innovative and sustainable use of chemicals

SAFECHEM is an experienced provider of solutions for the safe and sustainable use of solvents for industrial parts cleaning, textile cleaning and asphalt testing applications. With offices in Dusseldorf (Germany) and Shanghai (China) and a network of distributors, we serve over 5,000 customers worldwide.

We are committed to the principles of Responsible Care® and Product Stewardship, and develop innovative business models and services in various industries and applications.

Our way of doing business responsibly.

Quality

Quality is the foundation stone of our pyramid of values. First of all, because we serve very demanding industries. Like the aerospace industry, where quality is synonymous with passenger safety, the automotive industry, where quality is key for profitability, or luxury brands where it means reputation…

And secondly, in order to gain the long-term trust of our customers, there can be no compromise on the quality of our products and services.

Risk Management

There is an important, yet all too often forgotten difference between risk and hazard. Certain applications require a set of chemical properties – and the second-best alternative always comes with a trade-off, either on quality or on profitability, and sometimes even on the environmental reputation of the company.

Implementing proper risk management can allow our society to benefit from the advantages of highly effective chemicals in a safer and more sustainable way.

Collaboration

Collaboration is a way of being for us: we regard our distributors and customers as our partners. Of course, a close relationship is the only way to satisfy demanding needs. But it is not just that we see our customers' requirements and challenges as opportunities – engaging and understanding them is always fruitful work.

We are a service company, and we work hand in hand with a wide range of partners to increase the satisfaction of our clients: cleaning equipment manufacturers, waste managers, oil producers, authorities, distributors and associations, to name just a few.

Circular Economy & Sustainability

More than just buzzwords for us. We believe in Sustainability and a Circular Economy. We know they are valuable principles when they are put at the heart of what we do. And we have experienced their impact and benefits.

We were initially founded as a joint venture between a chemical producer and a chemical recycler. Taking care of the end of the life of our products has been in our DNA from the very beginning.

But the Circular Economy is not just about recycling. It is about decoupling the outcome from the resource needed. That means helping our customers to get better performance out of our products and to use the products for longer. And that is what we strive for.

Innovation

Innovation is a logical consequence of the previous pillar. There is only one way to provide high-quality products and services, in a safe and sustainable way, and to respond to the challenges of the partners we work with: be one step ahead, innovate.

We have ahistory of over 25 years of thought leadership
