About Hempel

Hempel is a world-leading coatings supplier for the decorative, protective, marine, container and yacht markets. From wind turbines and bridges to hospitals, ships, power stations and homes, our coatings protect man-made structures from the corrosive forces of nature.

With a focus on R&D, advanced production techniques and professional coating advice, we work around the globe to help keep our customers’ investments safe and beautiful for longer. Our working concept is simple: we are curious, creative and self-critical, and always aim to create extra value for our customers.

If it needs a coating, just ask
We offer a full range of protective 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 so homeowners can bring colour to their homes safely; and we provide a full range of protective and maintenance products for yacht owners.

In short, if you have something to paint, we most likely have a solution for it. All you need to do is ask.

Low-solvent solutions for better environmental performance
We also 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.
