DSM Synres produces solvent-borne alkyd and acrylic coating resins at its site in Hoek van Holland (Netherlands) for the global coatings, adhesives and graphic arts markets since 1947. The company realises sales of approximately EUR 50 million with around 80 employees. All employees will on the closing date transfer to the new owner. Under the new ownership, Synres will continue to focus on solvent-borne coating resins for the global market.

Improving performance via upgrading the portfolio

The sale of DSM Synres is in line with DSM’s strategy for its Performance Materials cluster to improve performance via among other things upgrading its portfolio. In coating resins DSM is focusing on sustainable technologies such as water-based, powder and UV-curing coatings for end markets including decorative paints, high-end flooring, industrial wood, graphic arts and numerous metal applications.
