In 1974, two Evonik predecessor companies independently chose to build production process plants at the current location. From small beginnings, strong growth has transformed the site into Evonik’s largest chemical manufacturing site in North America.
Evonik is especially proud of its achievements in environmental, health, safety, security and quality (EHSSQ). Since 2006, the employees of Evonik have achieved a 92% reduction in Recordable Incident rates, as well as zero Recordable Incidents during 2016. Many of our production units have operated over 25 years without a Lost Time Accident.
Facts and figures only begin to describe the site’s capabilities. A talented workforce combined with an excellent community reputation positions Evonik as a key employer in the region, attracting talent from Alabama and surrounding states.
