The company

DAW SE follows a multi-brand strategy in order to provide a suitable range of products for each target group – from professional applicators, to architects and specifiers, to industrial customers. Common to all DAW SE brands is its innovative coating systems which fulfil exceptional requirements ensuring a more pleasant living environment. The vast product range includes high-quality paints, enamels, glazes and chemical building coatings as well as materials for facade and installation technology.

The headquarters of DAW SE is still located at the company's foundation location in Ober-Ramstadt in the Odenwald about 35 km from Frankfurt airport. Internationally, DAW SE is represented in over 40 countries and has 29 production sites.


Although we have developed over the past 120 years into one of the world's largest building paints manufacturers, we still believe in the values embedded in our medium-sized entrepreneurial origins, our German roots, our sustainable corporate philosophy and our family spirit.

Despite our cultural diversity in over 30 countries, these values unite us, providing us with our "one spirit" communal mind-set. This is also crucial to our versatility and therefore to our primary corporate objective of maintaining our independence in the long term.

We want to lend life to our values, both inwardly and outwardly, through daily conscious actions, continuously developing these values and strengthening them. The sum of our many small actions makes us unique and in the end leads to corporate success.
