KURZ is the global market leader in hot stamping and coating technology. This is confirmed by the current world market leader index published by the Henri B. Meier Entrepreneurship School at the University of St. Gallen, and by the ADWM (Academy of German World Market Leaders). With more than 5,600 employees, KURZ develops and produces decorative and intelligent finishes for cars, smartphones, notebooks, home appliances, furniture, packaging, textiles, cosmetics, bank cards, and many other products. KURZ owes its leading position to a keen sense for trends, constant contact with designers and industry experts around the world, and ongoing advancement of its solutions - for over 100 years now. With KURZ, you too can become a leader in your industry.
KURZ supports you along the entire value chain. Within the KURZ Group, our subsidiaries comprise a large network of experts in finishes and sensors for your plastic surfaces: PolyIC for innovative sensor technology, Hinderer+Mühlich (H+M) for hot stamping tools, BAIER for hot stamping machines, BURG DESIGN for surface solutions in the automobile industry, and SCHÖFER for injection molding tool technology. You reap the benefits of a partner from the initial idea to the final product.
We’ll support you from the outset and advise you on topics such as costing, material specifications, project management, production planning (tools and machines, plus manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic production).
This is where we start shaping your initial ideas. We will discuss surface texture, functionality (light and sensor technology), surface properties, etc. Your product gets its distinct look. We create mood boards (color and haptic worlds) and ultimately mockups for your corporate design. By developing the colors ourselves we can be sure the quality is right. There are regular feedback loops throughout the entire process until you approve the design. You'll benefit from one single point of contact along the entire value chain.
Our research and development team will discuss with you which specifications the finish has to fulfill and which design aspects (soft touch, backlighting, etc.) are important to you. Based on our market and trend analyzes, we develop a finish that meets your requirements. You'll benefit from unique products in excellent quality tailored to your individual needs.
Manual, fully or partially automatic? Integrated or as a separate production line? Standard equipment or custom-made? We plan your production in such a way that it fits perfectly into your process chain.
To keep the CO2 footprint as low as possible, we produce in Europe, Asia, and the USA under uniform quality and environmental standards. With more than 30 locations around the world, your contact point is practically at your door. We operate under the same high standards everywhere, especially when it comes to sustainability. This results in finishings that do not affect product recyclability, and which facilitate responsible use of our natural resources.
At this stage, your surfaces get additional sophistication and smartness. Touch sensors, gesture control, backlighting, day-night design - we develop ideas and concepts that give your product the finishing touch, for a wide range of industries.
