WHO WE ARE

Sikkens leads the competition when it comes to beautifying and protecting exterior wood surfaces with its Cetol Transparent Timber Finish System. The Sikkens name has stood for quality in coatings for more than two centuries. Today it is one of the leading brands of Akzo Nobel Decorative Coatings. Akzo Nobel, based in Europe, with divisions across the world, is one of the largest coatings companies in the world.

Sikkens has been in Australasia for over 25 years and has proven itself in the harsh Australian and New Zealand climates. Sikkens was initially developed by Wiert Willemszoon Sikkens, a painter and glassmaker in 1792, when he began the manufacture of paints and varnishes for his family store in the Dutch trading centre of Goningen. His inquiring scientific mind, combined with solid business sense characterises his legacy today.
