Hempel expands R&D Centre in Barcelona

Hempel expands R&D Centre in Barcelona
A newly expanded R&D Centre in Barcelona will enable Hempel to develop and customise products faster, respond to customer needs more efficiently and help customers conform to rapidly changing environmental legislation states the coating manufacturer. Hempel officially opened the new R&D Centre at a ceremony yesterday.

Hempel’s facility in Polinyà (Barcelona) previously focused on developing the company’s range of antifouling coatings and developing products for Spanish customers. Now, after a €2m expansion project, the R&D Centre will be able to apply its knowledge to support European businesses with protective, decorative and yacht coatings developed specifically to meet European and country legislation.

Hempel also has R&D Centres in China, Korea, Singapore, Bahrain, Denmark, Germany and the US.
