Who we are

A global team and exciting growing business

A world of opportunities

We live and work in many different countries, speak many languages and have different skills and areas of expertise. But we’re all part of the Hempel family – a team of more than 6,500 people, united in the belief that our coatings can make our customers’ businesses stronger and our world safer and longer lasting.

Hempel is a growing business, both geographically and in its fields of work. This gives us unique opportunities to develop our skills and explore different ways of working. Whatever we do, we constantly work to earn the trust of our colleagues, customers and external stakeholders. We value collaboration and innovation, and back ourselves to succeed.

Our values: Hempel at heart

Our values portray the personality of our company culture and commitment to customers. They describe what it means to have Hempel at Heart – and act accordingly.

 

Connecting to customers

What this means for you as our customer

We maximise the relevance of our coating solutions by connecting to customers to gain a deeper understanding of their needs. We use this understanding to focus our resources where they add greatest value, to customise our solutions to local market conditions, and to build strong relationships with the aim of becoming the partner of preference.

What this means for you as an employee

You are expected to understand and take responsibility for your role in the customer value chain with the purpose of delivering the market’s most trusted solutions. This chain is only as strong as its weakest link. You are expected to question our way of working with the aim of creating more value for our customers.

Inspiring trust

What this means for you as our customer
