H.C. Starck implements a range of certified management systems to ensure that its products are of consistently high quality.
But, obviously, that’s not all: long-term success requires innovations that can cope with the challenges of global markets and trends.

H.C. Starck’s portfolio helps its customers benefit from global megatrends such as the search for renewable energy, miniaturization, or high- performance applications. Technology metals and high-performance ceramics manufactured to special requirements enable our customers to create market-leading technological innovations, and thereby gain a clear competitive advantage.

Once again, H.C. Starck’s capacity for innovation is based on two pillars: a strong commitment to research and development, including joint projects with universities and research institutes, and its extensive expertise in application technology

Our employees in the research department work on the development and improvement of materials, products, and processes. They work closely with our customers’ applications technologists, as well as renowned universities and research institutes, for a direct linkage between research and applications technology. All new developments, whether product innovations or process improvements, are tested for their practical utility and modified for specific customer needs.

The results are impressive: Worldwide patens and patent applications as well as ongoing optimization of cost structures, stable product quality, and shorter processing times. In the area of recycling we have expanded our expertise to include other materials, and have developed new recycling technologies.
