A welcome to Industrial at Hempel

Hempel has acquired the leading coatings manufacturer Schaepman Coatings. With the Hempel acquisition of Netherlands-based coatings manufacturer Schaepman's Lakfabrieken B.V, Hempel takes a step towards achieving its growth ambition: to increase its presence in the Protective and Industrial coatings markets
