KEIMFARBEN GMBH has been present on the Russian market for almost 30 years. Up to now the market was handled by direct importers. Now the world's leading specialist for mineral paints has founded its own subsidiary in Moscow, which is operating under the name "OOO KEIM MINERALFARBEN" since January 2020. Managing Director is Ralf-Peter Ehlers, who, along with his employees Maria Sennecke (Sales), Victoria Khanzhina (Office) and Vjacheslav Lvov (Tinting Master), has many years of experience in the Russian paint market.
"With the establishment of this subsidiary, we would like to be closer to our Russian customers in order to be able to react even faster to the wishes of investors, painters, architects and planners", explains Roland Perriot, Head of International Sales. One of the tools used for this purpose is a KEIM Local Colour Studio, which combines fast product availability with the highest quality of colour shade.
The aim is to intensively develop the market in the field of restoration and new construction. Current projects range from Moscow and St. Petersburg, to the Volga region around Kazan, to Krasnodar and Sochi in southern Russia. Among the most prominent buildings designed with KEIM paints are the Kremlin Wall as well as the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow and the Admiralty building in St. Petersburg.
KEIMFARBEN, founded more than 140 years ago and headquartered in Diedorf near Augsburg, has 12 subsidiaries and 28 sales partners worldwide
