In 2017, Evonik closed on its largest acquisition ever with the purchase of the specialty additives business of Air Products. The deal added about 600 employees and seven sites in North America, along with a portfolio of products uniquely compatible to Evonik’s. The company also purchased the silica business of J.M. Huber, bringing another almost 300 employees and three new sites to Evonik.
Late in 2016, Evonik broke ground on a new precipitated silica plant near Charleston, S.C.
