Company founder Georg Hartmann already recognized in the early 20th century that the former principle of "If it doesn't smell, it doesn't work" was not true. He demonstrated great courage and launched salt solutions and odorless salts. KULBA was one of the first salt-based wood preservatives, which were offered to the construction industry. They proved themselves on the market and enthusiastic customers from different business fields were found in short time.

The careful selections of (natural) raw materials as well as modern production processes in addition to a sophisticated process technology are still the basis of our more than 300 high quality KULBA-products. Only high-quality and mostly renewable raw materials of a consistent quality are used, which are processed under environmentally sound conditions to our premium stains, primers, paints, lacquers and special feature products for the professional craftsman.

The use of naturally derived and renewable raw materials has always been a special commitment for us. In our laboratory in Ansbach highly motivated and qualified employees are constantly developing our product assortment in a close contact to our suppliers as well as with the laboratories of our co-operation partners. We try to continually offer environmentally friendly products according to the latest state of technology. In this section it has often been possible for us to develop a lead over our competitors.
