Who we are...

We are the first German artist paint factory. We have been developing, producing and marketing paints for artists, children and creative people in Hallerndorf, Franconia, for over 180 years. As an owner-managed family business, each and every one of our 100 employees counts. We exist in an industry that is lifestyle-driven and we are convinced that as a brand company we have to act imaginatively and sustainably in order to be successful.

We can color. We are colour.
