Inventive by tradition

Ground-breaking inventions, trendsetting products and a wealth of experience in the development and production of high-tech polymers characterize Covestro.

Our company brings together the freshness of a new start with the confidence that comes from decades of experience. Although Covestro was established as a legally independent company only in 2015, the company’s business activities extend back to the early part of the 20th century. Covestro – formerly Bayer MaterialScience – arose from the Bayer Group’s chemicals and plastics unit. Both the developments of our organization and the innovations that we have established form our corporate history.
