Foundation of the company Hansa Chemie in Berlin as a trading company for chemical products.

Duisburg establishes as headquarters of the company. By investing in a tank farm, vessel accessibility and the logistics turnstile, the Hansa Chemie is additionally able to provide general partner services (e.g. transport, warehousing, lab analysis etc.) on behalf of third parties and thus has solidly established in the market.
