Ingevity is a specialty chemicals and high-performance carbon materials and technologies company dedicated to developing and delivering innovations that purify, protect and enhance.
In a world that is constantly changing and facing new challenges, we are making a real difference. Our products are used in a variety of demanding applications, including asphalt paving, oil exploration and production, agrochemicals, adhesives, lubricants, printing inks and automotive products. Headquartered in North Charleston, South Carolina, Ingevity operates from more than 25 locations globally and employs approximately 1,500 people. We are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: NGVT).
The company forged its innovative spirit as a division of Westvaco Corporation, a paper and packaging company, more than a century ago: Rather than seeing the co-products created in the papermaking process as waste, we saw an opportunity to use those resources more responsibly. Over time, we were able to transform co-products into solutions, while minimizing environmental impact.
At Ingevity, we aspire to achieve greatness through engaging the hearts, hands and minds of our exceptional employees, who boldly push the bounds of what’s possible for our customers. We call upon the diversity, knowledge, energy, talents and expertise of all individuals, and are constantly exploring fresh ways of bringing our people, products and processes together to anticipate our customers’ needs – and exceed their expectations.
