The high demands for uniformity in production ensure that products under the Sigma Coatings brand meet - and often exceed - the market's high quality requirements.
We are in close dialogue with the market and feedback from this helps to shape our broad service offerings, which you can, among other things, benefit from here on the website.
The head office is located in Søborg. From here we serve professional painters through our professional distributor network. Sigma Coating's products are also available for marine and industry as well as for private customers through a strong store concept for color dealers.
Our history dates back to 1722, when Pieter Schoen & Zoon in Holland sold colors under the Sigma name. The production took place on the picturesque color mill, "Den Gekroonde Schoen" in Zaandam-Holland.
The name - SIGMA - was originally a trademark for a number of special quality products. The main reason for SIGMA ended up being also the name of the company, however, was that the Gekroonde Schoen was difficult to pronounce for customers from abroad. SIGMA is derived from the Greek letter "S" and the "S" is now an integral part of the logo.
The Danish history begins in 1952, when Pieter Schoen was established in the country. Today, Sigma Coatings is part of the PPG Group, the second largest paint supplier in the world.
