As of January 1, 2019, AHC Surface Technology and Impreglon merged under the roof of their parent company Licco Industries N.V. (Licco) into one business unit called Licco surface treatment. With the merger, both partners will create a global full-service provider of functional surface refinements.

“The combination of core competences and the regional presence of both partners enables us to build a high-performance entity that meets all different requirements for first-class industrial coating solutions. Licco surface treatment is a leading, innovative and globally active technology provider that supports its customers as a competent partner. Now, we can even better serve the realization of large projects for global key accounts, backed by a strong parent company “, says Michael Preinerstorfer, CEO of Licco surface treatment.

Both partners complement each other with regard to their product portfolio and their many years of intensive production expertise. Thus, Licco surface treatment offers a broad range of processes to surface finish all sorts of different metal and plastic components. With the applied coating processes, components are protected against corrosion and wear or provided with special properties. Main processes include, besides other, electroless nickel, hard anodizing, polymer and zinc flake coating. Some of them are applied only partially. Production capabilities range from economically efficient coatings of small mass parts to individual solutions for high-tech components. In addition, Licco surface treatment offers various process chemicals for surface technology. With the refinement of more than one billion components per year, Licco surface treatment serves customers from all key industries.

In April, Licco surface treatment will present its product portfolio and expertise with a new trade fair concept at the upcoming Hannover Fair 2019 (hall 5, booth C51).
