An ever-ambitious company
At DSM, reinvention is in our blood (we are a science company, after all). From the depths of the Dutch State Mines over a century ago we’ve transformed ourselves into something truly bright: a global science-based company specializing in ensuring the world is healthier, happier and safer. And we’re still evolving….
From century-old roots as the Dutch State Mines, DSM has evolved into a purpose-led science company numbering 23,000 people worldwide and specializing in solutions for Nutrition, Health & Sustainable Living. Our purpose is to create brighter lives for all – which is why we’re proud that our name has assumed a new meaning among our people in recent years: Doing Something Meaningful.
From animal and human nutrition & health to medical devices; solar technology to biofuels; sustainable plastics and resins to the world’s strongest fiber …our businesses bring value to as many as possible.
