Our locations

Our headquarter is located in Würzburg.
The following areas can be found there:

Testing 
Training and further education 
Research and development
Certification of management systems 

The three locations in Germany - Halle, Peine and Horb - enable us to transfer knowledge nationwide for the area of training and further education for specialists and managers. The European Centre for Dispersion Technologies – EZD for short – was established in 2014 at the SKZ site in Selb. There we deal with the production and characterisation of dispersions with the main focus on resin development.

The future of plastics processing is also in the starting blocks: After the grant notification from the Free State of Bavaria was handed over, construction work for the model factory began at the SKZ on 25 May 2020. Completion is planned for September 2022, when more than 100 employees will work together across departments on three floors.

But we also work for the plastics industry beyond Europe's borders. Since 2009, for example, we have been offering certified training courses for plastic pipe welders for HDPE pipe networks in the gas and water supply sector together with our partner BMC Gulf LLC in Dubai.
