cph Deutschland Chemie- Produktions- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH is an internationally active family business based in Essen. It is one of the large-scale world-wide suppliers of biologically degradable industrial adhesives. The core competence of the undertaking lies in the production of environmentally friendly label adhesives for the foodstuffs-, packaging-, paper-processing- and cigarette industries. In the field of label adhesives, the cph group occupies the second place world-wide after Henkel. Apart from Germany it has production plants in Russia, the Ukraine, Portugal and Germany. Further production plants are planned for Vietnam and Brazil. With its so-called Country Desks cph is represented in 70 countries and exports to 80. More than 90% of its German production is exported. The company was the first in Germany to be validated in accordance with the EC-Eco Audit (EMAS 1836/93). In the meantime cph has switched to the world-wide recognised DIN EN ISO 14001: 1996. In 2011 the cph group was awarded a certificate by the Efficiency Agency NRW in the context of the ÖKOPROFIT-project.



In 1975 Gerwin Schüttpelz founded the cph Chemie Produktions- und Handelsgesellschaft as a dealer in industrial adhesives. In 1977 the production of starch- and cellulose adhesives commenced and in 1990 these were followed by the first protein-based label adhesive. Coca-Cola Deutschland, which was then based in Essen asked cph in 1990 to develop a special label adhesive for PET bottles. At this time the name of the company was changed to cph Deutschland GmbH. Then a production unit was set up in the Ukraine followed by the establishment of cph Industries Moscow. Participation in cph Quimica in Portugal in 2002 came next and in 2009 a subsidiary company was established in the Netherlands
