Reliable partnerships

Your success is also our success!

We are continuously extending our service range to make sure the successes keep on growing. In cases where we do not have the necessary know-how, we always know who does have it. A functioning, carefully weaved network helps us here.

By degrees, we are creating a comprehensive service of consulting capacity for the whole of Germany and, with the Global Chemical Consultant Network, we are aligning our activities internationally as well.

A milestone in respect to entrepreneurial cooperation is the Ingenieurwerk in Hamburg (engineering consortium) of which UMCO is founding member.

Global Chemical Consultant Netzwerk

With the assistance of the Global Chemical Consultant Network, which we co-founded, we can provide our clients with accompanying consulting services for new markets and production locations.
