HISTORY OF OUR PRODUCTS

Customer service, quality and innovation are the three pillars of the corporate philosophy of KNEHO-LACKE GmbH, which have ensured the evolution of the company since it was set up in 1936. From the very outset, KNEHO specialised in the production of materials for finishing wood, plastic and similar surfaces. The very first finishing material produced was “wood filler” (KNEtbares HOlz), which gave the company its name KNEHO. Today, the portfolio includes over 300 product ranges with a wealth of different versions.
