50 years experience

The career of our founder, Dipl. Ing. Volkmar Hank, has been dominated by the paint and coatings industry since day one. After his apprenticeship as a paint laboratory technician, he graduated in 1972 with a degree in chemistry.

After two years as laboratory manager of a coatings factory, he switched to the world of additives for the coatings industry and specialized further in the use of technical waxes in the field of coatings and paints.

His experience and specialization still shape the molecular structure of our family business today.
