Innovations

Give a future to the future

Innovative, tailor-made products and services which focus on the customer are the strengths of the Follmann Group, and the key factors for ongoing growth and future success.

Environmental friendliness and the responsible handling of natural resources always play an important role – just as much as our staff, who work together with our customers to develop and advance the best possible solutions. For this purpose, we continuously invest both in the construction of new buildings and in the extension of existing ones.

Sustainability

Is an obligation towards the generations of today and tomorrow

The long-term success of our company depends solely on the sensible use of natural resources in the interest of future generations. Therefore, our sustainable actions go far beyond conforming to legal requirements. We also adhere to the sustainability guidelines of the chemical industry in Germany and follow the Responsible Care guidelines of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI).

For us, the responsible use of energy in compliance with the energy management system (ISO 50001) is a matter of course. We work according to certified quality and environment standards (ISO 9001 and ISO 14001). Throughout the product life cycle we take into consideration the conservation of resources and the reduction of environmental pollution.

In order to ensure successful collaboration with our employees, the Code of Conduct not only defines guidelines for dealing with customers and business associates, but also for ensuring good company management. As a result, the Code makes an important contribution to the sustainable development of the Group.

Tradition

is preserved progress, progress is continued tradition

As far back as 1956, Heinrich Follmann, as an independent entrepreneur in Minden/Westfalen, was developing and selling speciality chemical products both nationally and internationally. Over time, the product range in the fields of special coatings, industrial and building coatings, coatings and paints for professional painters as well as printing inks for the paper and cardboard sector has been continuously expanded.

Follmann & Co. was founded in 1977. When Dr Rainer Follmann joined the newly founded business in the same year, the transition to the next generation was already arranged. A continuous further development of the production processes was undertaken in addition to the expansion of the product range. In 1986, for example, in-house polymerisation facilities were commissioned for the manufacture of special binders and raw materials for paint and ink production. Furthermore, raw materials for the manufacture of adhesives and sealants were polymerised.

An important milestone in the history of the family business was achieved with the foundation of Triflex KG in 1984. In the years to follow, the fast reactive PMMA resins were added to the product range and, at the same time, Follmann & Co. began with the transfer of its chemical operations for the construction industry to its new subsidiary. The company also specialised further in printing and coating products.

With Dr Henrik Follmann, the third generation joined the company in 2005. He served initially as the Managing Director of Triflex GmbH & Co. KG until he was granted overall responsibility for the family business in 2010.

Ongoing development is essential to the continuation of this success story and growth of the Follmann Group in the future, both nationally and internationally. In addition to staff numbers, the company is also increasing its production capacities further and will be investing over 42 million euros in the Minden location over the coming years.
