Who We Are

We’re bold, energetic, ingenious and genuine.

At Ingevity, people are at the center of everything we do. Even our name was inspired by the traits that define and differentiate our culture and our business. Innovation, ingenuity, longevity – and our genuine nature. Our success is dependent on a collaborative team that embodies these attributes and engages the diversity, knowledge, energy, talents and expertise of all of our people.  

What We Want to Be 

To be the recognized leader in our markets; to be proud of where we work; and to be a positive influence in our communities. 

Our vision requires us to reach beyond our grasp, but like the green “window of possibility” featured in our logo, it is not limiting. We aspire to achieve greatness through engaging the hearts, hands and minds of our people, which we believe will result in sustainable competitive advantage and the creation of significant social and economic value for our business and in the communities where we live and operate. 

Customer Success Stories

At Ingevity, we believe that the difference between “good enough” and “game changing” is a question of vision. That’s why we stop at nothing to amplify our customers' success, working together to make the world cleaner, safer, better. We call this unique ability The Ingevity Effect.
