Your partner for Chemicals and Polyolefins

Our History

LuerChem LLC, Geneva (Switzerland), was incorporated in January 2003 by our founder and owner Udo Benesch, a veteran of the European Chemical Industry, who held a series of Senior Management positions during his 30 year-long career with Union Carbide (UCC) / Dow Chemical Corporations.
At the founding of our company, a team of experienced and highly respected Marketing & Sales executives was already in place, most of them being of UCC/Dow and/or BP heritage. Very soon after the incorporation of our Swiss Headquarters, wholly owned subsidiaries were also established in Warsaw (PL) and Cairo (EG), with additional Sales Offices in Moscow, Prague, Vienna, Casablanca, Istanbul, Dubai, Johannesburg and a Logistics/Operations Office in Antwerp.
We are a European player but our main territorial focus is on Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey, Middle East and Africa.
