As the red part of this rainbow Rembrandtin Powder Coating is leading the way this year. 2017 represents a milestone in the history of Rembrandtin Powder Coating GmbH. Not only is this the year of the tenth anniversary of the company since the acquisition of the former IRIS GmbH 2007, it is also the year of the strategic move to a bigger facility, situated in the heart of west Germany.
Strong team – strong tailwind – full speed ahead!
“Get settled, keep on moving”, is the answer if anybody askes about changes in Rembrandtin Powder Coating. The move of the company from Eitorf to Buchholz-Mendt to a facility twice the size of the former one is a key step in the European growth strategy. “It was not always easy, we fought hard and we succeeded and today I am proud and overjoyed to introduce our new facility in Buchholz-Mendt as a result of the commitment and hard work of our team and all the people that supported us over the last ten years”, said managing director Bastian Krauss, who has accompanied Rembrandtin Powder Coating on its journey from the very first day. Mr. Krauss continued “We are gaining capacity which will facilitate additional growth and more flexibility for our customers. This will strengthen our market position and will help us meet the continuously increasing customer demands over the long term”. Scheduled to start full production until the end of the year, construction work is expected to be finished by Q2 2018.

The opening of the new facility was combined with a long-awaited ten years anniversary celebration on September 15th. The whole RPC team was happy and excited to host the event in one of the production halls, which was equipped in an industrial style and furnished for the 160 guests who took part in the event. While a live band was entertaining, our guests were spoilt for choice between several offers from food trucks, that where guarding the hungry in front of the hall entrance, and joining our guides for a tour through the facility. Fortunately, there was time to do both. „There are two things that made this day possible and hold the key for future business success. First, we are a young company with strong roots, and second, we have the best team. It is wonderful to see how business relations can turn into trust and even friendship. With this strong support, we can face difficult market challenges and enhance our potential for new opportunities to come”, emphasized Doris Fußwinkel, Director Internal Sales Dep.
Among the guests were the company’s most important customers, suppliers, local politicians and colleagues that substantially supported Rembrandtin Powder Coating to build up its potential to what it is today. A special honor was to welcome five of Helios’ new associates from Kansai Paint Japan. With the new owner of the Helios Coatings Group, Kansai Paint, we have enriched the color spectrum of our rainbow so that the powder coating segment is now reaching an overall global sales record on group level. We now find ourselves in the best conditions to keep the rainbow shining.
