The High Performance Materials business unit (HPM) of chemicals company LANXESS commissioned industry photographer WOLFRAM SCHROLL to shoot photos in the areas of production, development and research for the company's own photo pool. Wolfram Schroll on the project: "I've always been fascinated by chemistry and used to build small solid rockets when I was about twelve – thank goodness they didn't fly very far." LANXESS, of course, is about completely different products, for example plastics for the emerging electro-mobility sector.
The challenge during the shoot for LANXESS was finding and developing motifs in the giant complex of production facilities and labs. "After a detailed location check, we photographed for one week at two different sites." says Wolfram Schroll. The LANXESS AG, headquartered in Cologne, is a specialty chemicals company which was founded in 2004 after outsourcing the chemicals division and parts of the polymers division at Bayer AG. The company reached a stock market value of approximately 7.5 billion US dollars in mid 2018. We have Wolfram Schroll's photos here for you on GoSee. lanxess.de
