Safety is our Highest Priority

Evonik’s Mobile site is equipped with a professionally trained 24/7 emergency response team and medical personnel. Thanks to continuous investments in the site’s safety systems and personnel, the site has achieved a 92% reduction in the rate of recordable injuries since 2006.

Long-Term Growth

Since beginning production in the 1970’s, Evonik’s Mobile site has continued to steadily grow. Our Mobile site provides over 1,100 full time and contractor positions, which in turn support over 5,800 jobs* in other sectors. The workforce at Evonik is very stable, with very low turnover and an average tenure of 13.5 years.

Environmental Sustainability

Evonik knows how precious the coastal waterways are to the Mobile community and native wildlife. That's why we've added former EPA employees to our staff to help us better understand the local, state, and federal regulations that we are asked to meet. Their expertise will help us to maintain the natural beauty of the Mobile area.

Supporting our Community

Evonik encourages a culture of generosity within the community, which is why our employees spend time giving back to the community we live in through scholarships for young students and other volunteer projects such as Evonik's own coastal cleanup and bowl-a-thon events, as well as the American Cancer Society® Breast Cancer Walk and Ronald McDonald House charity initiatives.
