Did you know that Charles W. Engelhard Jr., son of the founder of Engelhard Corporation, was rumored to be the inspiration for the James Bond fictional character Auric Goldfinger? Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels, met Engelhard in 1949 in South Africa and is said to have mimicked his acquaintances industrialist lifestyle that morphed into the character, Goldfinger. No fiction here. BASF acquired Engelhard in 2006, adding resources to the 100+ years of precious metal expertise from Engelhard to help make our customers more successful.
