We are proud of our employees - because they give their utmost for our company, our products and our customers.

As a modern family-run company now in its third generation, the safeguarding of the head office is just as important as our worldwide sales and our international subsidiaries and partners.

The product range of Europe’s leading system coating provider covers the entire spectrum of industrial coatings, powder coatings and electrodeposition coatings all the way through to Durelastic surface solutions for composites. Its international sales are carried out though a global network of foreign subsidiaries and partners.

The manufacture of coatings and coating materials is certified according to ISO 9001 and meets all requirements of the automotive industry in accordance with ISO/TS 16949.
Environmental protection has always been a key priority for FreiLacke. Therefore, the company makes every effort to develop environmentally friendly products, reduce emissions, packaging materials and waste and use resources sparingly.

In 2023, FreiLacke was honoured as one of the top 100 employers in Germany in the “Great Place to Work” competition and, with a quota of 10%, attaches great importance to the subject of training.

These are our achievements. This is the path that we will continue to tread.

FreiLacke has stood for expertise in the development of innovative paints and coatings ever since it was founded. Fast-forward to modern day and the family-run company based in the Black Forest is now in its third generation. As a specialist in a wide range of industries, applications and manufacturing processes, we guarantee quality standards that you can rely on.
