From windmills and bridges to hospitals, ships and homes, our coatings protect man-made structures from the corrosive forces of nature. They help prolong a structure's service life, reduce maintenance costs and, we like to think, make it more attractive.

Wherever we work, we always focus on innovative solutions and advanced production techniques. But our working method remains simple: we are curious, creative and self-critical, and always strive to create extra value for our customers.

We believe that the coatings industry can and should contribute to a better environment. So we invest in advanced waterborne products and innovative ideas to help customers cut fuel consumption, reduce emissions and hit their environmental targets.

We offer a full range of coatings and technical service to customers in the protective, marine and container industries. But we don’t just do big. We also supply low-solvent paints to homeowners so they can bring colour to their homes and we provide a full range of products for yacht owners.

In short, if you have something that needs painting, we most likely have a solution for it.
