Hendrichs AG in Eupen has been Teknos’ sales partner for over ten years. The specialist wholesaler supplies wood working handicraft and industrial companies and provides its customers with comprehensive professional support. The company also runs a cutting-edge training centre with spray booths and overhead conveyors.
In order to develop its activities in the expanding market for fire protection in Belgium and to be able to advise customers better, Hendrichs organised a one-day intensive training course for employees in mid-September. The topics include: basic knowledge on fire protection, legislation, standards and regulations as well as the corresponding Teknos solutions including costing and sales. The keynote speaker was Mark Norris, Sales Director at Teknos Germany. Mark Norris has over ten years of experience with fire-retardant coatings and is responsible for the expansion of this segment at Teknos Germany.
Mark Norris demonstrated the effectiveness of fire-retardant Teknos coatings by practical example. A small wooden house was coated on one half with a normal coating system (AQUAPRIMER 3130-00 and NORDICA EKO 3330-03), and on the other half with the intumescent coating TEKNOSAFE 2407-00. The effect of the special coating, already widely used, is impressively shown in the video documentation of the experiment.
The world’s tallest wooden building, the renowned AccorHotels Arena in Paris, residential properties - Teknos solutions are often the first choice when it comes to fire-retardant coating of wood.
The new Pudasjärvi school started its operations in the autumn of 2016. The goal is to be known as the world's largest timber structured school building. Several Teknos products are used on the site.
The waterborne, UV-curing paint TEKNOLUX AQUA 1728 is the ideal solution to achieve highly durable surfaces in a modern low-VOC coating process - perfect for kitchens, furniture or doors. This makes individual colours immediately possible in smaller quantities.
Finnish Businessmen's Association, in collaboration with Aalto University and Kauppalehti have chosen Paula Salastie, CEO of Teknos Group, as the Businessman of the Year 2016.
