For more than six decades, manufacturers around the world have relied on AkzoNobel’s industrial wood coatings to beautify and protect wood products. Our coatings enhance home and office furniture, kitchen and bath cabinetry, wood flooring, wood windows and doors, and many other OEM building products. There’s a good chance that something in your home or office is protected by AkzoNobel’s industrial wood finishes. After all, we make more wood coatings than any other coatings company in the world.
But it isn’t our size that makes us so popular – it’s our long-standing tradition of anticipating our customers’ needs, and supplying them with innovative new technologies and unprecedented customer service. AkzoNobel was the first coatings manufacturer to support the furniture industry’s quest for globalization. Nearly 20 years ago, we built the industry’s first coatings manufacturing plant in the Asia Pacific region to support furniture manufacturing there. Today, we make wood coatings in 25 countries around the world.
Wood coatings technology has evolved tremendously during the last 20 years, and AkzoNobel chemists have been at the forefront of that evolution. We are leading the industry in developing high-solids, waterborne, low-VOC and UV-cure technology – formulations that significantly reduce our impact on the environment without sacrificing beauty and protection.
