Our values: creativity, persistence and fairness still shine through in our everyday work and the way we treat our people and our customers.
We look forward to seeing people who want to grow with us and the take the company to the next level. People, who have the vision and drive to make the company even better for future generations. Likewise, we value people how enjoy hands-on-work in paint production or who see themselves doing research and innovating and developing completely new types of surface solutions.
Our values influence all our operations. They define what is important and appreciated within the company. Following them in our daily work enables us to develop our products, operations – and even ourselves as a team – for the benefit of our customers.
While creative thinking is particularly emphasized in research and development, it also manifests itself throughout the company. Creativity becomes visual in the way we respond to the evolving customer needs, both when it comes to technical properties and customer service.
The determination to discover the best possible solution for every customer need is visible in our long-term partnerships. We are committed to constantly improve our expertise and performance by working in several long-term development projects both inside the company as well as helping the customers in refining their processes.
All customers, personnel and partners are treated equally and with respect in accordance with the legislation of each country. This is reflected by our honesty and the way we keep our promises. Our knowledge and experience is openly shared with our employees.
