Ideas for our future

Every single day in our laboratories and application technology teams, we strive to provide answers to the pressing questions of our time:

What can we, the players in the field of foundry chemistry, do to sustainably protect our environment? Which new processes and techniques offer the greatest productivity and stability? How can we support foundries that are exposed to the challenges of strong global competition and sustained pressure to innovate?

Research all over the world

Innovations seldom happen by accident – in most cases, they are the product of a great deal of hard work, expertise and experience.

As a global company with customers all around the world, we rely on a multicultural team and a network of global research hubs. Because we know: every innovation and technological advance is only successful if it benefits our customers – regardless of borders or regions.

More than 150 industry-leading scientists and specialists work across the HA Group to develop innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for foundries.
