K+S Gruppe: Competence in raw materials for over 100 years

The K+S Group is an internationally-­ori­­ented raw material company with pro­­duction plants in Europe and America and an international sales network. K+S is one of the world’s top producers of special and standard fertilisers and the world’s leading salt producer following the acquisition of the North American company Morton Salt in 2009. K+S supplies the agricultural sector with the plant nutrients potassium, nitrates, phos­­phate, magnesium and sulphur. With its offer of high-quality fertilisers, the company makes a con­­­­siderable contri­bu­tion to feeding the world’s growing pop­­ulation. The high-quality salt products from K+S are the basis for nu­­mer­­ous areas of use: salt for the food in­­dustry, as a preservative or as pharma­ceu­ti­­cal salt in its purest form and as de-icing salt for safety on winter roads. The K+S Group now generates about half of its sales out­­side Eu­­rope and its fertilisers in par­­ticular are much in demand abroad.
