• Oemeta Christmas Donation 2017

    For several years Oemeta Chemische Werke GmbH has decided not to send Christmas presents to its customers, instead it supports locally-based non-profit organisations.

    This year the donation of 2500 € goes to the Freiwilligen Forum Uetersen. The support of the refugees, who come to Uetersen and stay, is one important task.

    Nearly 30 members of the Freiwilligen Forum Uetersen work at two schools to support foreign students with the so called DAZ Programm (which means German as a second language). For helping effectively in this area, it is recommended and appropriate to do excursions with the students from time to time. Furthermore, the volunteer workers help teaching German and support the children to visit the regular classes.

    Oemeta already donated to the Freiwilligen Forum Uetersen in 2014. You will find more information about the project here:

  • Re-Certification ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015

    Oemeta’s quality management and environmental management has been certified through DEKRA again this year, with the latest certificate.

    The quality management norm ISO 9001:2015 is the most important quality management (QM) norm nationally and internationally and builds the base for the continuous process of improvement of the internal quality management system (QMS). Important factors are the fulfilment of the customer demands, as well as a high product and service quality.

    With the environmental norm ISO 14001:2015 Oemeta admits to the principal of sustainability and to environmentally friendly business activity. The environmental management with ISO 14001:2015 includes the efficient use of energy and raw materials, the minimization of disposal and risk prevention.

As part of the HYCUT two-component metalworking fluid, the new additive contributes to a state-of-the-art high-performance emulsion suitable for all types of metalworking operations.

  • Summer time is cleaning time

    The cooling lubricant manufacturer Oemeta Chemische Werke GmbH offers cleaning services for machines and cooling lubricant systems. The professional approach to cleaning invariably extends the service lives of tools and cooling lubricants. The service is in particular demand during the summer, when interruptions to operation may already be planned, and also to relieve employees of this necessary yet unpopular procedure. On top of this, Oemeta also offers a fluid management service developed in-house and tailored to the customer’s requirements.

  • Successful Re-Certification

    For the fourth consecutive time Oemeta has achieved the ‘Sicher mit System’ (Systematic Safety) certificate.

    In 2007 Oemeta was the first chemical company in Schleswig-Holstein to achieve the ‘Sicher mit System’ (Systematic Safety) certificate, from BG Rohstoffe und Chemische Industrie (Chemical Employer's Liability Insurance Association). Oemeta and its occupational safety management has now been successfully re-certified.

    For the ‘Sicher mit System’ quality award, companies voluntarily subject their Health & Safety systems to be examined and evaluated by a neutral body.

    Companies are then able to optimise all aspects of their work safety, substantially reducing the risk of accidents and operational malfunctions.  

  • Oemeta showcases modern cooling lubricants at Intec

With these proprietary developments, Oemeta is reacting to numerous guidelines that govern occupational safety. Visitors to the company’s stand will experience first-hand how Oemeta’s innovative products can also increase production efficiency.
