Global Corporate Website for MDAX corporation

Bayer MaterialScience was rebranded as Covestro on September 1, 2016. It now is independent economically and legally. netzkern assisted in launching the new, global Covestro websites and provides the hosting solution in their data center for the Sitecore-based web presences.
With their change to independence, Covestro was looking for a suitable system for the new corporate website and a strong partner to build and maintain this solution. They found a platform and a partner that could satisfy all requirements in Sitecore and netzkern.

We advised Covestro before the rebrand, integrated Sitecore, and migrated existing content. Websites that are based on other platforms and third-party systems like the product data base and the SAP response centre were seamlessly connected to Sitecore. The result convinced Covestro and their customers since the digital interface works convincingly and efficiently for both parties.
Covestro Website
The Covestro websites are hosted in the netzkern data centre and provide special reliability and highest performance. Hosting by netzkern is based on server and storage systems at two locations in Düsseldorf. The systems are redundant and connected by a four-fold 10 GB fibre optic cable connections, a so-called Dark Fibre.


The Bayer corporation rely on netzkern's know-how and services for many years and projects of various branches, for example in realising the previous Bayer MaterialScience website and the media monitoring for Bayer HealthCare.
„netzkern again supported us perfectly with technological advice in this project. The Covestro websites are higly performing and reliable world-wide. As an independent, quoted company an efficient website infrastructure is indispensable for us.“
