Teknos Drywood is a Dutch company specializing in the development, production and supply of a full range of protective wood coatings.
Since 1960 we focus on water-based formulations containing very low amounts or no solvents at all. This is beneficial for the environment and for workers. At the same time, this resulted in products with extremely long life cycles – up to 15 years. We offer products which protect wood in a durable and sustainable way – just as wood is.

Our management model is very compact so we offer a personal touch. The touch which gives your product higher durability, higher gloss, a smoother surface, a nicer look or colour.
Our company offers independently approved and certified high quality products, is customer service driven and provides innovative solutions for the wood working industry and professional painters.
