A young company with a history

Carl Schwengers

Our company was founded in 2023 by Conrad Zilkens and named after his grandfather Carl Schwengers.

Carl Schwengers, (born 1920 in Düsseldorf, died 2015 in Munich) had a doctorate in chemistry and process engineering and worked for many years on the establishment and development of the chemical industry in Krefeld. For more than 25 years he worked for the German Solway Werke in Rheinberg, specialising in PVC production. He was also a member of the board of directors of Alberdingk & Boley GmbH, where he contributed his experience in chemical process engineering. Today the company is one of the leading manufacturers of water-based dispersions as well as special oils and adhesives.
Throughout his life, the latest developments in the automotive industry were also a focus of his interests. He was always up to date on the current technical advances and challenges faced by the major German premium manufacturers.

Character rather reserved and modest for himself, he supported the next generations in their professional development with great interest. He enthusiastically exchanged ideas with them about research, technology and development. Reliability and honesty were important to him in all matters. Without his influence, our company would probably not have been founded later.

We are proud to name our company after Carl Schwengers and to be able to show commitment to the next generation on the basis of his maxim and values and in his spirit:
