OUR HISTORY - OUR 101 YEARS OF SUCCESS STORY

1921

2022

When the brothers Theodor and Wilhelm Schlau founded a paint wholesaling business in Minden in 1921, they probably could hardly have envisaged the long tradition. In 2022, the family company proudly looks back on 101 years of history, 101 years of the most up-to-date products and innovations. We will continue to build on that!

ON AND ON ....
