Flügger has five factories located in three different countries, which produce both tools, paint, and designer wall paper. Our paint factory in Kolding from 1970 is the oldest factory within Flügger. The wall paper factory in Gdansk, Poland, is our latest and was built in 2009.
In the Danish city Kolding millions of liters of paint is manufactured.
The factory in Kolding annually manufactures around 20 million liters of water-based paint, wood preservation and wall paper adhesive.
The factory, which was build in 1970, was rebuild in 1978 after a devastating fire. When the factory was modernised, at the same time it was decorated by the artist Poul Gernes, who is famous for his systematic work with colours. One of Gernes' most extensive pieces is painted directly on one of the walls in the factory.
Three minor Swedish cities each have their own Flügger factory.
Annually the factory in Bollebygd near Göteborg manufactures 30 million water-based and solvent-based paint, wood preservation, cleaning products, and filler.
In Bankeryd lies one of the Swedish factories that manufactures brushes and rolls - most of which are made mechanically. A few selected types of brushes are assembled by hand to secure the right quality of the product.
In the factory in Bodafors we manufacture plastic handles for brushes, rolls and filling knives. Here we also manufacture other plastic components such as lids and packaging.
The latest Flügger factory built is situated in Gdansk.
In Gdansk, Poland, lies the most modern wall paper factory in all of Europe. In 2009 Flügger built the factory with 40 percent subsidy from the EU. The year after it was built, the factory began its production.
