The COLDEC group was founded in 1978 and in its early years focused on the production and marketing of colour flakes and plastic particles. This raw material is mainly used in multicolour paint systems, but also in wall and/or floor finishing.

In collaboration with and commissioned by the paint industry, the COLDEC group has also begun to develop (decorative) paint products. This intensive collaboration with the paint industry has led to the creation and drop of Studio Coldec .
