A history of innovation

Our roots go all the way back to 1814 when Johann Daniel Riedel, a pharmacist, began making pharmaceutical products in Berlin.

1902
The de Haën company moves to Seelze. The product range is focused on inorganic chemicals.
 
1928
The two companies merged forming the "Riedel-de Haën Aktiengesellschaft". Since then the company has advanced to become one of the world?s most acknowledged manufacturers of high grade chemicals. The product range includes high purity hydrofluoric acids, technical preservatives, fluorescent pigments and - last not least - laboratory chemicals.
