About This Site
INEOS Phenol GmbH was originally founded in Gladbeck, a town located in the western part of Germany, by Phenolchemie in 1952. The company started Phenol production in 1954 and at that time had a total capacity of 8,000 t/a (metric tonnes per annum) of Phenol and 5,000 t/a of Acetone. Continuous improvement together with selective investments has grown the plant capacity over the years.
Our Gladbeck facility sits on approximately 33 hectares and is now the largest single train Phenol plant. In addition to production, the Gladbeck site is also home to both our technology development group and our European customer service centre. The site also provides services for the INEOS Phenol headquarters in Rolle, Switzerland.
