Coatings manufacturer Hempel (Denmark) recently celebrated the grand opening of its new research and developer Center of Excellence in Barcelona, which will focus on coating products within the field of passive fire protection.

“PFP coatings are an important part of our growth strategy. But it is equally important to us to help protect the inside of our customers’ assets and provide safety to the people working or staying there. And applying the right coating is crucial here.”

Hempel reportedly invested 6 million euros ($6.79 million) into the 9,800-foot-space that will house the laboratory as well as testing areas and offices.

When fully operational, the PFP Center of Excellence will employ more than 30 people including technicians, scientists and engineers.

“The organization at the new Center of Excellence will continue the work in developing PFP products and testing solutions,” said R&D Director in Barcelona Santiago Arias. “Hempel already offers a range of PFP products, but the team is dedicated to moving forward and I can promise that our product portfolio will soon be expanded with solutions that our customers can trust to protect their buildings and industrial installations.”
