With the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, the need grew for paints, special coatings, wet coatings and many other coating products, in particular for the emerging industries. Wuppertal was and is one of the centres of these developments, and thus the Lörken-Lacke company came into being in 1893. It was taken over by Manfred Huhn in 1981 and still produces
at the same location today. The specialist for superior coatings further expanded the company and pushed the successful expansion ahead. Mid-2016, Manfred Huhn passed on the responsibility to his three children, who had already been part of the company for a long time, and who will continue with the further growth.
