Plastic Decoration by LEONHARD KURZ

Synthetic surfaces from KURZ – aesthetic and technological masterpieces

LEONHARD KURZ is your global design and service partner for the extraordinary surface finishing of your products, from concept to series production. We have won numerous awards for our impressive solutions, for example the 2018 Automotive Brand Contest in the Future, Mobility, and Parts category for the sophisticated ‘Cloudy Feathers’ day-night design. KURZ is instilled with creativity and an innovative spirit, because Konrad Kurz laid the foundation for a completely new industrial sector: In the early 1930s, he applied for a patent for the very first hot stamping foil coated with genuine gold in what is referred to as the sputtering process. With this he made leaf-gold, up until that time only produced by hand, available for many new possible applications. Today we have an unrestricted choice: numerous surface finishes for simple or complex geometries, tactile, haptic, with or without touch sensors, for individual parts or large-scale production. We continuously develop our procedures, techniques and processes to create pioneering solutions for you. KURZ offers everything from a single source – from concept to realization. Quickly, reliably, efficiently.
