Who we are

Decorative:  high performance solutions

for interiors and exteriors

At Hempel, we’ve got more than industrial coatings solutions  –  we’ve got an eye for beauty as well.

O

ur growing product range of fine decorative coatings includes high-performance emulsions and enamels, together with a variety of textured finishes and special effect paints. Our assortment also includes primer/sealers and fillers, providing customers with a complete Hempel decorative system to ensure maximum performance and a beautiful, durable finish.

Long ago, however, we recognised that providing high quality coatings is not enough. To make sure that our customers received the best possible results, we established a network of Technical Service Departments around the world to advise on paint-related issues – including the best system to use and the most appropriate method of application – from private houses and villas to the largest commercial buildings.

W

hen it comes to Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) initiatives, we have always taken proactive measures to ensure that our products and processes meet demanding compliance requirements all around the world. But complying with legislation is the bare minimum of our HSE objectives.

From integrating sustainable product safety into R&D, to constructing state-of-the-art, energy-efficient factories in Europe and China, Our One Hempel – One Ambition strategy is about more than business growth. Every new evolution of our strategy is aligned with our HSE commitment, while never forgetting our most valuable resource – our people.

Welcome to Hempel


Who we are

Our history 

In July 1915, 21-year-old Jørgen Christian Hempel became Denmark’s youngest licensed wholesaler when he established J.C. Hempel Marine Paints A/S. With the motto of ‘Quality and Service’, his mission was to create consistent quality coatings for a dynamic and growing industry.

O

ver the years, we’ve expanded our original product portfolio and services into many other coatings markets around the world, eventually evolving into the Hempel Group of Companies. To secure a sound future for the Hempel Group and its subsidiaries, J.C. Hempel transferred all his shares to the Hempel Foundation in 1948. Today, the Hempel Foundation remains the sole shareholder of the Hempel Group.

All of the operational companies within the Hempel Group are owned wholly or in part by the Hempel Foundation. Daily management is handled through Hempel A/S, headquartered near Copenhagen, Denmark. Employees are represented on the Foundation board as well as on the board of the holding company. This independence gives the Group full freedom to pursue its commitment towards our employees, customers and product innovation.

The Hempel Foundation 

J.C. Hempel was more than a talented businessman; he was also a visionary thinker and one of the first business owners in Denmark to provide his employees with benefits. He believed strongly that companies had a responsibility to their employees and their communities.

I

t is this spirit of caring that is at the core of the Hempel Foundation. Though J.C. Hempel died in 1986, the Hempel Foundation is still guided by his philosophies.

While the main purpose of the Hempel Foundation is to provide a sound economic basis for the Hempel Group, it also supports charitable projects around the world. Many of these initiatives aim to give children the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves and their society through comprehensive education programmes. The Hempel Foundation supports schools in Cambodia, China, Argentina and Africa, amongst other projects. Through these and other initiatives, the Hempel Foundation strives to do what it can to carry on J.C. Hempel’s legacy and to help make the world a better place.

Did you know…? 

There’s a lot to know about the Hempel world, but here are a few facts that might surprise you.

Hempel has been protecting offshore wind turbines since the very beginning of the industry when the first wind turbine park was erected offshore near Vindeby, Denmark in 1991. The new Hempel factory in Poland has the ability to supply up to 60 million litres of paint per year. That’s enough to coat three-quarters of a million 20-foot cargo containers. Coatings supplied by Hempel UK for the Tower Bridge are guaranteed to last up to 25 years. If all container manufactures switched to using waterborne coatings like Hempel’s Ecoboxcoat, the annual output of volatile organic compounds VOCs could be reduced by nearly 90 per cent. If applied to the entire world fleet, the fouling control coating Hempasil X3 could save the world from 90 million tonnes of CO2 a year, equal to the amount of CO2 emitted by Greece.
