From its very beginning, the specialty chemicals group Clariant has been in a continual process of transformation. This, the first book-length study of the company, gives an insightful account of its historical foundations, starting with the successful merger between the two major corporations that would become Clariant: Sandoz and Hoechst. With eyewitness accounts and interviews, Bálint shows that Clariant, with bold plans for the future, draws its lessons from history.
