Competence Center Wood Surface©

Wood surfaces competence centre

Testing of all important trade and industrial application procedures, as well as coating systems under real conditions

Our competence centre

Since its inauguration in Autumn 2014, the wood surface competence centre represents the strengths of the company Remmers GmbH: professional quality products and made-to-measure customer service. After an 18-month construction period and an investment of about three million euros, there is nothing to be desired. The extensive technical equipment provides more than 500 visitors a year insights into the latest technologies and continuously updated and extended application equipment.

This gives our business partners a decisive competitive edge: not only because production processes can be tested and optimised under realistic conditions, but also because the latest system technology can be examined in use. Innovative room equipment allows all customer parameters to be replicated and to simulate the real requirements made of the coating products. The objective is to avoid misdirected investments when purchasing systems and to allow any necessary adjustments to be made directly on site.

In addition to the technology centre is that almost 800 sqm in size, the Villa Kösters that is attached to the building also has training classrooms with enough space for seminars by the Bernhard-Remmers-academy and also individual training courses by customers and business partners. This combination of application technology, customer service and training courses aims to promote the exchange of know-how between scientists, paint professionals and industrial partners.
