About us

What is hiddenChempions?

hiddenChempions is your online platform to get to know more about companies in and connected to the chemical industry. Our mission is to find the champions in their market. This is regardless of what the company produces, offers, or creates value with. For example, if

  • You are a supplier and offer the best in class delivery? -- Great!
  • You are a manufacturer and develop new chemical products? -- Excellent!
  • You are a start-up and would like to change the world? -- We are happy to have you here!

Why hiddenChempions?

Our focus is to make the chemical industry more transparent in society. We do this by giving each company the opportunity to present themselves and their capabilities, products, and services on our platform. We believe that only a few consumers are aware of companies in this Business-to-Business (B2B) sector. Generally, most of the people are buying consumer products, whereas they only recognize the finalized product for their usage. At this end of the value chain, companies in the Business-to-Consumer (B2C) sector are competing against each other and raise attention with marketing campaigns. We also want to raise attention for the companies at the beginning of this value chain.

We will show you more about these hidden champions or as well call them:


You would not imagine how many companies are required during the manufacturing process for some products. You can test it and ask yourself the following questions for the next product you buy:

  • Who is the manufacturer of my product?
  • What kind of resources are required to create it?
  • Who else is involved in the manufacturing process?

To find the answer to these questions might be more difficult for some products than for others. We founded hiddenChempions to give all the companies in and connected to the chemical industry a place to present themselves. We want to create transparency, awareness, and raise attention for those companies. Moreover, we believe that the products and services provided by the chemical industry are essential for our daily life.

Without chemistry, the world would be different as we know it!

Who would be hidden?

It is not our intention to set KPIs on this question. However, these questions have been already answered in the literature. From our understanding, a hidden champion is a top company in its industry. This company is setting standards and manufactures an excellent product, or offers an outstanding service. However, the company might not be known by everybody in the community or society. This is where we want to approach and provide a platform for all the companies which are around the chemical industry.

What are our topics?

We write about the newest topics in the chemical industry. Especially, digitalization, Industry 4.0, and Internet-of-Things are topics we cover in our blog. We are always searching for companies that want to drive the change with us. Digitalization is a key topic in the chemical industry! You can find a list of chemical companies we are working with, in our blog posts.
