Reliability and credibility, listening and designing, solution competence and customer orientation, responsibility and sustainability: these are the values underlying ​​Zeller+Gmelin's success and outstanding customer satisfaction since1866. Benefits you can always count on!

RELIABLE + CREDIBLE. It’s what we have been doing for more than 150 years.

And it’s what we will continue to do in the future. That’s how we create added value for our customers – a clear plus. And, of course, for our employees, who are the people behind the continuous growth of our company.

We do everything in our power to meet the needs of our customers – by listening, understanding and solving their problems. Thanks to our exceptional understanding of processes, applications and development, not to mention our clear customer focus, we are a valued partner of companies both large and small when it comes to standard and specialist applications in the fields of lubricants, printing inks and chemicals. What’s more, the DIVINOL brand is synonymous with top-quality automotive lubricants.

Together + as one, We may not be the biggest.

But we are always the right choice – both for our customers and our employees. As a company that has grown healthily, Zeller+Gmelin stands for security and the ability to withstand crises. We have been a financially independent medium-sized company for more than 150 years and will do whatever it takes to keep it that way.

With this in mind, we not only take responsibility for our employees and subsidiaries worldwide, but also for the environment and society at large. Numerous certificates pay testament to our journey towards even greater sustainability.

As we progress in this area, we strive to maintain and build upon the strengths of our divisions in the interests of the company and its good name, both nationally and internationally.

LISTENING + DESIGNING. These are the cornerstones of our success.

We’re great listeners. But it doesn’t stop there. Zeller+Gmelin doesn’t just understand. Zeller+Gmelin designs tailor-made product and process solutions that impress and provide measurable improvement.

You can only do this if you are in touch – with processes, customer applications, the market and the times. This enables us to quickly and flexibly turn individual wishes into reality thanks to many years of experience and outstanding problem-solving ability.

In order to safeguard this status, we are not only committed to ongoing quality control and the continuous development of our processes, products and services, but also to our employees. Our highly qualified and motivated people are our plus when it comes to lubricants, printing inks and chemicals.

FUTURE + PRESENT. Have always ignited our passion.

This is the only way we are able to achieve our ambitious aims. We wish to continue pursuing consistent growth with divisions that are successful in their own right – growth that is profitable, continuous and, as usual, healthy. We aspire to a significant share in all our targeted markets and a position as market leader in certain product and application segments.

Zeller+Gmelin is already a renowned process partner and application specialist, and we will increasingly shift our focus to the applications of the future.

In order to bring all our ideas to life, we need employees with accumulated knowledge who get down to business. Fortunately, we already have them. We are committed to long-term employee development and loyalty to make sure things stay that way.
