About us

Borregaard LignoTech, the world leader in lignin-based products (lignins and lignosulfonates), has over 60 years of experience in specialty chemicals.

Our world-wide network of production facilities and sales offices assures the very best local service and competence where you need it.

We are active in nearly 80 countries, primarily through direct sales and our innovation efforts are channelled from the market to our key R&D centers in Europe and North America as well as to our dedicated technical service personnel worldwide.

We trace our roots to the creation of the commercial lignosulphonate business over 70 years ago, and we have been shaping that business for the last 20 years. In the late 1980’s, we recognized the need to create a global lignin company to supplement the numerous smaller regional companies then in existence. Over the last decades we have built that company through acquisitions as well as numerous green field expansions. These efforts continue today as we actively seek new and more efficient ways to serve a global business community.

All in all, we employ around 600 people dedicated to meet and exceed the expectation of our customers with the highest quality products. We continuously strive to develop wood based renewable products for new applications and through that we contribute to present alternatives for oil based synthetic products in a wide variety of industries.
