An insight into our company

To develop, manufacture and deliver the highest quality coatings, you need the right team and the right environment. Join Marc Vierus, Technical Director at Bergolin, on this highly exciting tour of the company at its headquarters in Osterholz-Scharmbeck. He will take you on a behind-the-scenes look at Bergolin.

What distinguishes us


Many suppliers work with a standard range, with which basically good coatings can be created. In practice, however, this often leads to problems, e.g. due to the lack of adaptation to application equipment or the environmental conditions on site.

For this reason, users repeatedly have to make concessions that lead, among other things, to longer and more complex processes and, as a result, to higher costs.

Bergolin not only adapts its coating systems to the wishes of its customers, but also develops completely new solutions with them so that individual requirements can be implemented optimally.

  • Development of paint systems according to
    your requirements and processes
  • Solventborne, solvent-free or waterborne systems
  • Application: from manual processing to large-scale industrial production
  • Resistance to various chemical, mechanical and weathering stresses
  • Possibility of customized shades
  • Process optimization through perfectly matched coating systems
