Asahi Kasei Europe is uniting its activities
On 16th November 2020, Asahi Kasei Europe GmbH and its sister company Asahi Kasei Microdevices Europe GmbH started office operation at the new “C-View Offices” at Düsseldorf Harbour, Germany. After the cornerstone laying on 7th October 2019, the construction work went smoothly and was finished on schedule. The Asahi Kasei Europe R&D Center – originally located at Chempark Dormagen near Düsseldorf – relocated to the new location in March 2021.
The office building has wide open office and meeting spaces with a clear view on the water side and the Düsseldorf skyline. In the brand-new showroom the company displays its materials and solutions for the future automotive, ranging from sustainable microfiber materials for interior seat and headliner coverings to innovative foam products and separators for battery applications.

The adjacent hall building is home to the Asahi Kasei Europe R&D Center, with laboratory space for various materials, such as engineering plastics, synthetic rubber, as well as for battery and coating materials.
After the establishment of Asahi Kasei Europe and Asahi Kasei Microdevices Europe at “Am Seestern”, Düsseldorf in April 2016, the companies have been accelerating the activities towards the European automotive industry. This has been followed by the opening of the Asahi Kasei Europe R&D Center in Chempark Dormagen in October 2017, providing local technical support and strengthening the cooperation and joint development with European companies and universities.
