Synres history

A tradition of excellence in synthetic resins

Established in 1947, Synres (SYNthetic RESins) has grown to become an industry leader in excellence quality, reliability and customer service. Focused initially on the production of alkyds, Synres launched styrene-modified alkyd resins in 1962 and amino resins in 1963. In 1970, the company became part of DSM. In 2015, the Synres tradition of excellence continues under the stewardship of Standard Investment, an Amsterdam-based private equity firm. Since January 2022, Synres is part of the COIM Group.
