Strategy – Vision & Goals

Strategy – Vision & Goals

This article refers to the reporting year 2018 and thus to the former OXEA.

OXEA’s vision is connected with a clear goal: we aim to sustainably grow our business by being the global partner of choice for high-quality oxo chemicals and services – and beyond.

The two pillars for our long-term success are a solid base business, mainly formed by our Oxo Intermediates products, and the growth of our Oxo Derivatives business. With our long history in the field of oxo products, we not only build on our strong technical expertise and process knowledge, but we are also committed to serving specialty applications in sustainably growing markets

As a company, we are increasing our application and market segment focus to even better understand and fulfill the needs of our customers – today and in the future.

Our “star products” and focus areas (among others) comprise:

  • Propyls in the packaging and printing industry
  • Carboxylic acids as building blocks in lubricants and the animal feed industry
  • TCD Alcohol DM as a versatile copolymer in various industries 
  • 1,3 Butylene Glycol in personal care formulations


All our projects are geared toward our vision and goals and comprise the different aspects relevant for OXEA’s sustainable success.

Starting with the understanding of our customers’ needs and their translation into OXEA solutions, they range from capacity increases and additions to our product portfolio to technical developments and cooperation with our customers.
