Hemmelrath – A family-owned company

The company owners are Dr. Markus Hemmelrath and Mathias Hemmelrath; managing directors are Dr. Anton Angerer and Dr. Manfred Wunsch.
Hemmelrath Lackfabrik GmbH is the global market leader for eco-friendly waterborne primers for the automotive industry. Waterborne basecoats and clearcoats complete the product portfolio.

We supply to over 50 automotive plants worldwide; each year, more than 7 million cars around the globe are being coated with products made by Hemmelrath.

In the light of globalization, we forged ahead with our internationalization. Not least because of our customers’ requests we set up production sites in Brazil and in the US.

Automotive plants in South Africa are being supplied with the help of a partner; in Spain, a sales and service location was established. The end of 2013 saw a new production site opening up in China; in June 2014, Hemmelrath CZ in the Czech Republic and Hemmelrath RUS in Russia followed suit as well as Hemmelrath Mexico, S. DE R.L. DE C.V in Mexico in 2015.

Our success is based on our high level of flexibility, customized products of outstanding quality, competent service and continuous innovations. Hemmelrath has received multiple awards for these achievements.

As a company, we are proud of our contribution to environmental protection. Through the early development of innovative waterborne coatings, we were able to save more than 50,000 tons of organic solvents within the last ten years.
