Our story

Zweihorn® was founded in 1912 in Cologne by the Horn brothers and quickly gained a reputation as a producer of high quality and innovative products in the area of professional wood surface finishing. The Zweihorn® brand is now part of the AkzoNobel group. Our standards reach beyond the beauty and the splendid finish we give to the wood: we attach great importance to safety and ecological issues during research and development. We seek to meet the requirements of tomorrow thanks to our stains, paints and natural products. This is why Zweihorn® is the brand chosen by professionals.
