About Protec®

Protec® is a subsidiary of Ewald Dörken AG and since 1995 has been a reliable, high-quality point of contact for tailor-made solutions for tinting systems. We are a fourth-generation family-run SME business with a traditionally strong focus on exports and sound equity financing. We maintain long-term customer relationships and a return on capital employed is just one equal objective alongside many others.

Our product portfolio includes paste systems for a wide variety of work, be that for water- or solvent-based, decorative or industrial applications. Our client laboratory team and R&D department use their in-depth know-how both to provide new customers with sound advice and to answer any questions that may arise from existing customers. Whether you're looking to buy individual pastes or complete tinting systems plays no role for us in this. Not only when changing your tinting system, but also when seeking to make your purchasing strategy more flexible, we are the people to talk to, offering you expertise and a comprehensive range of products.

Since 2010, the company has been continually certified to DIN EN ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 14001 and EMAS III. As a Dörken Group company, Protec® has already won the TOP 100 award for top innovators in the SME sector five times.
