Bodo Möller Chemie recently announced that Korinna Möller-Boxberger and Frank Haug have assumed sole ownership of the company since Viola Möller’s departure on December 7, 2023; Frank Haug is now the majority shareholder. The company remains a cross-generational family enterprise that aims to focus heavily on sustainability, digitization, and technology in the future.
With the exit of Möller-Boxberger’s sister Viola Möller, Möller-Boxberger and Haug now form the new shareholder duo at Bodo Möller Chemie. Möller-Boxberger has been associated with the company since childhood and took up a position within its executive management in 1996. “Both of us will continue to position my father’s company for future success and proactively develop solutions for the challenges on our markets through strong partnerships,” said Möller-Boxberger. “For Bodo Möller Chemie, these factors are imperative to ensure sustainable growth.”
Haug has closely steered and actively advanced the company’s growth to date – from a turnover of €6 million and 12 employees in 2000 to a globally active company today with a turnover of €200 million and 340 employees worldwide. After completing his polymer chemistry studies and starting as a consultant for Bodo Möller Chemie in 1998, Haug became chairman of the board in 2000 and has also been a shareholder since 2005. In these roles, he has transformed the company from a shipping operator to an application specialist with technical know-how and consultancy competence. “Bodo Möller Chemie’s core expertise is translating chemical knowledge into construction,” said Haug. “Using this mechanical understanding, we’ll expand operations in the energy storage, battery, mobility and aerospace sectors significantly, ensuring the company’s stability as it moves forward.”
Bodo Möller Chemie has set itself ambitious goals for the future as a leading distributor and solution provider for specialty chemicals. For instance, it aims to triple its turnover of €200 million by 2030. The company’s strategic direction is centered on sustainability, digitization, and innovative future technologies. “The consistent focus on future technologies in particular is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy. That’s why we consistently invest in enhancing our technology expertise and further developing our Adhesive Competence Centers in Poland, China, India, and the US,” explained Haug. The company also plans to advance its global expansion significantly over the coming years.
