The design powerhouse of the group of companies has been rebranded: Süddekor Art is now called SURTECO art.
This represents another step towards integration of the former Süddekor Group into SURTECO. SURTECO art is an independent company which continues to develop decor designs, printing- and embossing cylinders for the Group and for external customers.
SURTECO Group – convincing with expertise
Buttenwiesen/Gladbeck, 21 March, 2017 – At Interzum 2017, the members of the SURTECO Group are demonstrating their collective strength. And that is: Perfectly coordinated solutions, all from one source. The central focus is on service for the customer. The SURTECO network guarantees him system solutions of the highest quality, regardless of whether he requires surfaces or edging.
In keeping with the motto for the fair “One in Motion” visitors can look forward to a strong presentation on the part of the Surteco Group. On an almost 600 m2 stand, the SURTECO Group presents itself as a cohesive unit, constantly in motion to create added value and innovations for the customer. The new stand concept displays imposing, expansive architecture designed to allow the visitor to experience the strength of the Group. “We set standards in design and surface engineering,” explain managing directors, Dieter Baumanns and Peter Schulte. “And we want to convey this at first glance to our visitors.” These can look forward to seeing exciting surfaces from super matte to high-gloss, new haptics and 3D experiences as well as technical highlights for modern furniture and flooring design. The special service offering for the handcraft trades is presented in a futuristic edging area. The topics featured here are availability from stock, small lot sizes and short delivery times.
Appearing just in time for Interzum is the new SURTECO trend book which was developed on an interdisciplinary basis and makes a powerful statement on decor design for the near future, distilled from the various social currents and visual tendencies. But one thing that can be revealed right here: three trend currents are identified which describe different forms and yet flow together to “One”. To match these trend worlds, the SURTECO Group has included new decors in the programme, which are to be impressively presented at the fair.
The SURTECO Group: Surface experts under one roof
The SURTECO Group comprises the specialists BauschLinnemann, Dakor Melamin Imprägnierungen, Döllken, Canplast, Gislaved Folie, Süddekor Art Design + Engraving and SURTECO Decor.
BauschLinnemann offers decor and surface solutions from floor to ceiling. Whether as flat foils or wrapping foils or melamine edgebandings – every application can be implemented for the wood-based manufacturing industry.
Dakor is one of the leading product developers, manufacturers and partners in the area of surface refinement for furniture and flooring. The overlays, decor films and backings define new technological benchmarks for resilience, process capability and quality.
As the worldwide leading manufacturer of thermoplastic edgebanding products, Döllken sets standards in decor matching and design, groundbreaking joining technologies and surface finishing.
The Swedish company Gislaved Folie produces thermoplastic surface materials which unite colour, form and function. With great dedication to quality and environmental safety, the decorative, functional foils are produced individually according to precise customer specifications and requirements.
At SURTECO DECOR special papers for industrial surface finishing are printed and finished with decorative structures using rotogravure. This results in products which we meet daily in the form of hard-wearing furniture surfaces or laminate floor covering with high design demands.
Within the year-end-celebration on 10th of December the Surteco-Group honoured 26 employees. Together they retrospect 580 years of experience in this company.The number of employees has more than doubled in the space of the last three years - by now there are nearly 500 people employed at the location of Surteco in Buttenwiesen, some are already 35 years working here.
The managing directors of Surteco Dieter Baumanns and Reinhold Affhüppe thanked the jubilarians and looked back at an exciting year 2016. Completing the process of integration (Süddekor-Group) and also the construction of a new customer service center were just some of the challenges the concern mastered in 2016.

This year, our team from TECOSMART launched its profile in a new look at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. Under the motto “Style your caravan with TECOSMART”, Lars Chabalowitz and his team presented the innovative, self-adhesive furniture foil to interested visitors in Hall 5 from 26 August to 4 September 2016.
TECOSMART is ideal for redesigning an individual living environment, whether the setting is a caravan or a living room back home. The foil facilitates fast, cost-effective implementation of individual design ideas.
TECOSMART - Innovative self-adhesive films for everyone who wants to make flexible and free.
TECOSMART is a paper-based self-adhesive foil. The advantage it offers over plastic self-adhesive foils is of particular significance for caravan interiors: Even at very high interior temperatures retains its shape. This is an important requirement for using the foil in caravans.
