Bohnen named CEO of Plexiglas manufacturer
German chemical company Röhm (Darmstadt; www.roehm.com) is about to make a change at the top. On 1 February 2024, Hans Bohnen is to assume the role of CEO and take over from Michael Pack, who is set to retire on 1 March 2024. 

Bohnen, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, worked at Hoechst, Celanese and SGL Carbon after completing his studies, the Röhm said. Most recently, he was employed by Clariant for almost 14 years until July 2023, including five years as a member of the executive board for the Care Chemicals, Catalysis, and Renewables divisions. His goal at Röhm will be to expand the company into the world’s leading methacrylates group, according information from the owner, US private equity fund Advent International

Röhm employs 3,500 worldwide at 13 production sites in Germany, China, the US, Mexico, and South Africa. The company reported turnover of EUR 1.8 bn in 2022. Röhm’s transparent, light- and weather-resistant MMA and PMMA products are used in cars, construction, lighting, and household appliances.

The company recently announced that it would be spinning off its PMMA and polycarbonate sheets, tubes, and other semi-finished products – together with the Sabic Functional Forms unit – into the new company Polyvantis.
