Archroma, the global leader in speciality chemicals is relocating its headquarters to Pratteln, just outside Basel in Switzerland, and turning its existing Reinach site into a customised R&D centre.

Archroma’s new Haus der Wirtschaft headquarters is located in a business hub that hosts the Economic Chamber Baselland with other companies, as well as a fully serviced conference and event centre. The new offices have been designed to support a smooth and efficient collaborative work and visitor experience.

The move comes after a decade of growth at Archroma’s TechCenter building in Reinach, which evolved from being a dedicated technical centre to hosting a growing number of corporate services and teams. With the opening of the new headquarters, the Reinach TechCenter, designed to accommodate laboratories and technical expert teams, will return to its roots with a focus on global R&D and application development, supporting the Archroma Competence Centers in Switzerland.

“With our new corporate headquarters we are joining a dynamic business hub,” said Heike van de Kerkhof, CEO at Archroma. “We are excited to refocus our Reinach site as a true ‘tech hub’ to provide solutions and services to our customers to help them increase the value of their products. Our science and technology expertise, coupled with in depth market, customer and regulatory understanding, provide the platforms for the creation of safer, more sustainable chemicals and practices in the industries we serve. With this latest development we are strongly reaffirming our deep commitment to our Swiss roots and presence.”
