Scope of the association

The association was established to represent the professional, economic and social interests of engineers from the paint and coatings industry.

Professional education of their members has become a focus of the work of the association. In 1998 the first annual conference took place in Rödermark where lectures on subjects from the paints and coatings industry were presented. Over the years the annual meeting has become an essential part of the association’s activity and meanwhile more than 300 participants join the conference. Besides the annual conference, numerous regional meetings and conferences are organized by the district groups where also topics from the paints & coatings world are presented.

Professional education and trainings will play a major role in the future of the association to increase the knowledge of paint professionals and to support the future of the coatings industry in Germany.
