We have as little to do with the fascination for Formula 1 racing as we have over the wonderful feelings you experience at a great concert. However – you will often find OXEA products in the fuel for racing cars, in car body paints, in the many plastics used in sound engineering, and in DVD and Blu-ray discs. OXEA is one of the world‘s largest manufacturers of Oxo products and is Number 1 in the Merchant Market. We are economically sound and continually growing – with a strong environmentally green conscience and a respect for cultural values. With approximately 1400 employees worldwide, we offer a working environment with a streamlined hierarchy which provides a wide variety of responsibilities that will challenge you professionally and provide opportunities to advance your career development.
