A long tradition of Germany quality

HAERTOL possesses over 60 years of experience in developing and producing chemical products including antifreeze, heat transfer fluids, and specialized products for automotive, power generation, and other applications — all of them made in Germany.

A little piece of Germany

HAERTOL is a German company through and through. VEB Härtol Werk was founded in Magdeburg in 1952. Over the course of the 1970s and 1980s, it developed into one of the largest producers of chemical products in the former GDR — leading in the manufacture of antifreeze, soldering supplies, surface finishing pre-treatment products, flux for hot-dip galvanization, quench salts and quench oils.

After reunification, Härtol GmbH Magdeburg was acquired by Henkel KGaA Düsseldorf. Since 2000, HAERTOL Chemie GmbH is once again an independent, owner-managed business in the possession of a Hamburg businessman. Germany is the world’s leading exporter of chemical products and HAERTOL supplies customers across four continents.
