Portrait / History



Innovation and tradition. Sustainability as a principle. AGATEX GmbH has been developing, manufacturing and selling specialised chemical products and fine chemicals for more than 90 years.

Hanns Bauer founded AGATEX in 1921 as a company producing technical gases. Since the 1950s, AGATEX has made a name for itself in Austria and abroad as a manufacturer of special organic chemicals. Today, the privately-owned company is managed by Georg Bauer as the fourth generation of the founding family. Following the integration of Europe and the evolution of new markets, the company’s expertise is also very much in demand outside Austria. Even so, the growth of the company is based on the principle of sustainability.

GF Mag. Georg Bauer.

“The high level of customer satisfaction is one of the reasons that AGATEX has seen continuous growth since its inception. For the future, we will further modernise the company with new investments to successfully meet the challenges. We are part of a proactive tradition, which means that we want to pass on the flame rather than tend to the ashes. Customer satisfaction today means more flexibility and the ability to deliver fine chemistry solutions within the shortest possible time – including well outside Austria.”
