LEONHARD KURZ

LEONHARD KURZ: the world leader in thin-film technology

It all began with OROFIN. In the early 1930s, Konrad Kurz applied for a patent for the very first hot stamping foil coated with genuine gold in what is referred to as the sputtering process under the name OROFIN. This film was used for pencils, bookbinding, and in the hat industry, and the former gold beater KURZ thus laid the foundation for its global group of companies. Our strong golden roots have inspired us to call our customer magazine OROFIN (‘fine gold’). Today, LEONHARD KURZ has more than 5,600 employees. The group currently develops and produces surface finishings in 12 factories in Europe, Asia, and the USA under uniform quality and environmental standards.

LEONHARD KURZ: visionary design competence, innovative developments

Innovation has been part of the KURZ DNA from the first hour. Today, our developers and designers are traveling all over the world. They are a source of inspiration and create concepts for new trends in plastic surface design. For example, our visionary design team has developed innovative Gold & Concrete decorations that can be used in a wide variety of industries. With our subsidiaries and various industrial partners, we are constantly working on new process technologies, such as carbon composite decoration for carbon fiber composites. Despite all the innovation, KURZ always remembers its roots, guided by the credo: don’t forget the familiar, but always question it and at the same time be open to new things - this is where opportunities lie.

LEONHARD KURZ: the global market leader

The world market leader index of the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German World Market Leaders (ADWM) has named KURZ world champion in hot stamping and finishing technology for the second time in a row. The criteria are stringent and there are currently 461 companies in Germany that meet them - one of them is us. Your trust and the commitment of everyone involved have helped us reach this top position!
