Neschen Coating GmbH

In 2016, Neschen was taken over after filing for insolvency. The company has since developed into an international leader in self-adhesive products and coated media thanks to systematic growth and optimisation measures. Neschen offers products for a wide range of applications in the fields of graphic media and laminators, bookcare and repair, and also supplies individual solutions for industrial applications, e.g. in electronic products. Customers include companies in the graphics sector, companies that need industrial surface applications, as well as designers, photographers, interior decorators and advertising agencies. In addition to further internationalisation, there is considerable growth potential in the very profitable industrial coatings segment, which the company plans to expand systematically.
