Adapting and evolving

CABB’s Jayhawk site has a storied legacy of ownership that forms the basis of who we are and what we do. Commissioned in 1941 as a munitions plant and nestled in the heart of the United States on more than 800 rural acres near iconic Route 66, Jayhawk is proud of its entrepreneurial spirit, firmly rooted in Kansas’ midwestern culture and business environment.



Single focus on custom manufacturing

Acquired by Permira, the global private equity firm, and subsequently integrated with CABB Group GmbH, a leader in premium fine chemicals and custom manufacturing services, the Jayhawk site serves as the focal point of the Group’s US activities.  Jayhawk combines the flexibility and agility of a smaller business with the resources of a transatlantic fine chemical custom manufacturing network. Agrochemical and industrial customers alike benefit from the Group’s combined expertise in complex, multi-step chemical synthesis.



Customer focus

Jayhawk’s customer-centric core beliefs set the course for a bright future:

PASSION for building strong and enduring relationships based on trust, honesty & open collaboration with our clients.

INGENUITY in finding “solutions to customers.” More than words, it’s an attitude and a commitment to troubleshooting problems, optimizing yields, delivering quality and productivity.

DEDICATION to integrating each customer’s product or process into our own production units, serving as an extension of your manufacturing operations.

So, whether you’re an emerging small business or a global Fortune 500 company, Jayhawk stands ready to assist you with a tailored solution at the best possible cost position.
