ONE SYSTEM COMBINING ALL ADVANTAGES

Osmo Holz und Color began as a sawmill in Germany in 1876. The company expanded into producing a wide range of finished timber products including flooring, bench tops, decking, garden fencing, and kit homes. These all required a durable finish and the owners were dissatisfied with cracking and peeling lacquers even back in the 1960's. This motive was the drive to create a better finishing system and led to extensive research and development, and then the opening of the Osmo Color facility. Osmo is the only timber product manufacturer which completes its product range with surface finishes that are developed and produced in house. This is why the Osmo finishes are a perfect match for timber.
