Stahl opens Center of Excellence in Spain
“Our new Center of Excellence is the place where our experts can work side-by-side with partners to share knowledge and showcase our latest future-proof solutions, innovations and technologies,” Vasco da Silva, Local Manager Spain, explains.
The new Center of Excellence in Parets del Vallès is located at Stahl’s manufacturing site at the same location, about 20 km from Barcelona. With its focus on more sustainable coatings technology for the home furnishing and apparel markets, Stahl believes that a wide range of partners and colleagues from the industry can learn everything about coatings and chemicals for synthetic surfaces and leather at this center.
Huub van Beijeren, CEO of Stahl, says:
“Innovation is part of the company DNA. The opening of this Center of Excellence is an example of how we use knowledge and expertise to develop tailor-made, future-proof solutions. In this center Stahl has invested in state-of-the-art equipment for polymer research, leather chemicals technology, as well as coatings solutions for the apparel & home furnishing industry like the next generation Stahl 'Evo” range of DMF-free polyurethane coatings.”

The applications and testing facilities on display enable Stahl to develop solutions that meet even the most critical and specific demands of performance, sustainability and style.
