Our business

The K+S Group is one of the world's leading suppliers of standard and speciality fertilizers. In the salt business, measured by production capacity, K+S, with sites in Europe as well as North and South America, is the world’s leading producer.

With the Potash and Magnesium Products business unit as well as the Salt business unit, the K+S Group has two complementary business units, linked by synergies, with attractive growth prospects at its disposal. We are pursuing a two-pillar strategy which provides for growth in these two business units in particular and for focusing our management resources and financial means on this.

K+S offers a comprehensive range of goods and services for agriculture, industry and private consumers which provides growth opportunities in virtually every sphere of daily life. The K+S Group employs more than 14,000 people and achieved revenues of about € 4.0 billion in 2013. The K+S share – the only commodities stock on the German DAX index – is listed on all German stock exchanges.
