Growing together.

In 1923 wefa was founded as a trading company in Essen. Today we develop and produce coatings to protect and design your surfaces. We serve more than a thousand customers from various industries on different continents. Our coatings are as varied as our fields of activities and our staff that enthusiastically and passionately contribute to making our world more colourful. No matter whether laboratory, quality management, production or administration – our team always works with one and same goal.


Would you like to find out whether the chemicals or coatings sector is suitable for you? Would you like to find out if wefa is the right partner for you?
