OUR HISTORY - OUR MORE THAN 100 YEARS OF SUCCESS STORY

1921

2023

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 more than 100 years of history, more than 100 years of the most up-to-date products and innovations. We will continue to build on that!
