Our Vision 2030

Modern lacquer systems to achieve a sustainable future

Modern lacquer systems

require a product range revamp

As a family-run company with intergenerational history, we feel compelled to assume responsibility for subsequent generations. So we’re completely restructuring our product range:

By 2030 we will have replaced all solvent-based products in our product range with sustainable alternatives and will be relying on regenerative raw materials. Our goals are to reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and to achieve maximum resource conservation.

We completely discontinued our production of nitrocellulose lacquers at the end of 2023. And we’re currently subjecting all other formulations that contain solvent to a review on the test bench. It’s our ambitious objective to replace as far as possible all raw materials we use with sustainable alternatives by 2030.

This is how we seek to make an active contribution to preserving a world worth living in for future generations and to meet future market requirements. What does your responsibility for the future look like?

What does it mean for you?

You can count on our support

We would of course like to work with you to reduce VOCs to a minimum. Increasing numbers of end customers are demanding sustainable surfaces for their home environment.

Are you still using solvent -based lacquers? Now is the right time for alternative coatings. We can offer you any support you need with your system transformation. Contact us.

Our transformation may result in some product range changes for our customers. Further details and facts about our Vision 2030 are available in this video and in our brochure.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a benchmark

We know that as a coating and stain manufacturer we bear a very special ecological responsibility. Solvent -based lacquers cause avoidable emissions and the depletion of non-regenerable raw materials. Such products also have negative impacts on the health of those processing them. In order to live up to this responsibility, we are basing our corporate alignment on the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which came into force in 2016.

Which SDG’s are important to us as a manufacturer of chemical products? Read here in relation to each UN Sustainable Development Goal the corresponding measures that we derive from it.

Sustainable success stories

The switch to Hydro lacquer

Our modern water-based lacquers have now achieved a high level of quality. There are now sustainable alternatives for each application involving interior fittings. Many of our customers have realised this. Here are a few examples from people who talk freely about their transformation experiences.

Both proprietors as well as lacquering operatives and planners report in detail about hurdles and successes with the introduction of Hydro lacquer into their companies.
