Company chronicles

MAGNESIA is head­quar­tered in Lüneb­urg in north­ern Ger­many and can look back on a long tra­di­tion. Dur­ing the Mid­dle Ages, the Lüneb­urg salt works, first men­tioned in a doc­u­ment in 956, brought the city’s nat­ur­al salt deposits to light. Since salt was then used to pre­serve food through the process of pick­ling, Lüneb­urg became an impor­tant stop for mer­chants on their routes.

Since then, the Lüneb­urg salt­works have per­ma­nent­ly pro­duced brine under var­i­ous own­er­ships. Most recent­ly, the “Saline Lüneb­urg und Chemis­che Fab­rik GmbH” pro­duced and sold salt as well as oth­er mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um com­pounds. In 1980, the approx­i­mate­ly 1,000-year-old tra­di­tion of salt min­ing in Lüneb­urg came to an end. Today, the Ger­man Salt Muse­um in Lüneb­urg pre­serves the his­to­ry of the old salt­works and makes it acces­si­ble to visitors.

With the knowl­edge that has devel­oped over the cen­turies about min­er­als in Lüneb­urg, MAGNESIA GmbH was found­ed in 1983 as the suc­ces­sor to Saline Lüneb­urg und Chemis­che Fab­rik GmbH by its for­mer employ­ees. The aim was and is to trade mag­ne­sium, cal­ci­um and oth­er min­er­al com­pounds in high qual­i­ty and with the focus on our cus­tomers. The lat­ter is the rea­son why we have con­tin­u­ous­ly expand­ed our prod­uct port­fo­lio for our inter­na­tion­al cus­tomers and part­ners over the past decades.

Today, we are a glob­al­ly-active and inno­v­a­tive dis­tri­b­u­tion com­pa­ny, which han­dles 15,000 met­ric tons of min­er­al com­pounds annu­al­ly on site at the Lüneb­urg loca­tion and deliv­ers them to all parts of the world with around 60 employees.
