Employee Perspectives

Why I am proud to work for Chem-Trend:

  • We are the best in the market, no doubt the market leader in terms of sales and market share, but also I strongly believe we are the best in other ways for example, we have the best people, the best products, and offer the best overall value for our customers.
  • I also enjoy the fact that there are always new challenges when working for CT. It can be in the form of career opportunity but also the fact that we are so customer oriented means that we're constantly finding new ways to meet ever changing customer needs. It's never boring in CT!
  • I enjoy the feeling of purpose in my role - I'm working as part of a team that is helping our customers to produce more, high quality products, using fewer materials - that's got to be good for sustainability of our customers businesses and resources in general. In addition we get to work with customers in areas of leading edge innovation (new parts, materials, processes, etc.) - this is an exciting part of the job for me.
  • Certainly the long-term orientation and the focus on high standards in the area of HS&E are also good. It's good to be working for an organization that has a real long-term commitment to its markets, customers and employees.
  • The training and development opportunities offered nowadays are really great. I have personally gained a huge amount from the LEAP program and other company development programs.
  • Finally the people make CT the great company it is. Despite the fact that the company has grown a lot since I joined, there is still a "family feel" about the organization. We know each other by first names and are not just a number in some huge machine. There are some truly world class people and teams inside CT that are a real pleasure to work with.

I like working for Chem-Trend as this allows me to work on a global base. The global challenges in business and intercultural cooperation enrich my daily life. The business model of Chem-Trend to focus on market needs and deliver solutions that are needed together with our global customer base creates a mix of innovation and added value technology. Chem-Trend is embedded into the FCS and further into the Freudenberg Group which allows all of us to think and interact as well between different industries and markets. This is exciting and important as well as break through innovations are usually developed in the overlap of different industries. We are exchanging our ideas and views in the thermoplastic global team at eye level rather than from a hierarchical point of view which creates an atmosphere of empowerment.

Chem-Trend is a unique company to work for. The corporate culture and working environment are the major differences from other companies that I used to work with or heard of. Everybody seems to have a strong sense of entrepreneurship and ownership of Chem-Trend business. It makes our working environment more exciting and more challenging. Therefore, any success within Chem-Trend would be more than just monetary benefit but also a self-fulfillment to me.
