Three brands, one shared vision: SURTECO DECOR, Döllken Kunststoffverarbeitung and BauschLinnemann have joined forces, perfecting their products and increasing the number of ways in which ideas can be turned into reality. The three have become one: the global company SURTECO GmbH. This groundbreaking collaboration reflects our vision of the optimal system network. An extensive portfolio, a holistic system, a world full of inspiration: all over the world, we offer our customers in various industries a diverse range of professional solutions from a single source.
As experts in creative design and technologically advanced surfaces, we develop new ideas and products that move people and make trends come alive. To achieve this diversity of design, we keep our finger on the pulse with a close eye on the natural world. The result is our perfectly coordinated product portfolio which contains individual decors and varied designs based on precisely compared decor data.
Design, colour, gloss and feel – individual combinations that can be perfectly coordinated for all substrates, materials and technologies. We are a one-stop shop for first-class decors, surfaces and edges. This requires years of experience with a wide range of processes and technologies as well as a thirst for knowledge and the drive to constantly review our solutions. Only in this way can we achieve perfection and respond quickly to our customers’ needs and current market developments.

Achieving more together
Innovations are what drive us. As a development partner, we work with you to create innovative solutions that increase the possibilities of surfaces in terms of haptics and optics. No matter what you have in mind, we can develop it together.
There is always a little room to improve
Quality does not begin with the product; it begins with the consultation: on the right design for the right application. Quality continues into highly professional customer care, and is ultimately demonstrated in the product and its flawless finish. It is only in this way – as a process and with continual improvement – that quality becomes a customer benefit.
We expressly pledge the following:
To our customers
- To provide high-quality products that meet their requirements
- To ensure flexible and on-time delivery
- To guarantee the best possible service and advice with regard to both application technology as well as commercial matters
To our employees
- To promote their awareness of responsibility, quality and the environment
- To protect them from dangers to their health and their employment
- To impart knowledge and expertise through the use of continuing education and training courses
- To actively involve them in the continuous improvement process
To protect the environment
- By minimising our impact on the environment, working against climate change and constantly improving our environmental performance
- By reducing energy consumption over the long term as well as continuously improving energy efficiency
In addition to the satisfaction of our customers and employees, environmental and climate protection, social responsibility and the environmentally friendly use of resources and energy are an integral part of our operating activities.
Sustainability means corporate value
A commitment to the environment is a part of our corporate philosophy. Our business activities are oriented towards the principle of sustainable development, which provides for meeting ambitious environmental standards, the careful handling of the natural bases of life and the efficient use of energy. We have established management systems for the environment and energy in order to realise these standards.

Environmentally friendly products
We take care
We print on fundamentally chlorine-free bleached paper which is produced using regenerative wood or wood waste, thereby conserving fossil fuel resources. Our printed decorative paper, finish foils and edges are available as FSC®-C104547 (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC™/04-31-2473 (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified products.
Our impregnations and varnish systems are water-based and free from hazardous heavy metals or other substances of concern. Our range includes a variety of products manufactured using low formaldehyde varnishes.
All residual materials that accumulate during the production of our products are environmentally friendly and can be recycled without any problems. These are then used in the company’s own special plants for its own energy requirements.
Through the integration of innovative technologies, we fall significantly below the legislative requirements with regard to air quality. We were the first company in our industry to invest in environmentally friendly biological exhaust air cleaning systems for the after-treatment of all our production exhaust air. Microorganisms take on the task of degrading substances present in the exhaust air.

Environmental and energy policy
We set the right course
We have pledged to protect the environment of our own volition and responsibility, which involves pursuing the goal of minimising our environmental impact and understanding compliance with laws, regulations, guidelines and official requirements as a minimum standard.
We assess the environmental impact of new activities or products in advance, advise our customers in detail on questions of environmental protection when handling our products and motivate our employees to behave in an environmentally conscious manner. We also pledge to reduce our energy consumption over the long term, increase our energy efficiency and continuously improve our environmental and energy performance.
