Welcome to the Schloetter UK web site.
As part of a privately owned worldwide group of associated companies, Schloetter develop, supply and support a wide range of products and processes for the finishing industry.
The group, originating in Germany and founded by Dr Ing Max Schlötter, focussed on the development of metal plating processes, has a very strong research and development heritage. Metal plating processes still form the majority the company’s business, whether this is for functional or decorative applications.
This business direction has however led the UK into the complimentary development of paints and lacquers. The initial focus was for the protection of thin layers of very white, decorative silver plate produced by the companies ELFIT silver plating process. In more recent times this has progressed to a full range of organic paints on many substrates for both decorative and protective applications.
As a group of companies we have been contributing to the advancement of the finishing industry since 1912 and have a significant depth of experience and understanding to draw upon. Continuing the research and development path set by our founder Dr Ing Max Schlötter we welcome new and interesting challenges.
