De Beer Refinish is a brand of Valspar bv, formerly De Beer Lakfabrieken B.V. The company was founded in 1910 and has been manufacturing car refinish paints since 1951. In 1980, the present production site at Lelystad was opened and we now deliver to more than 100 countries worldwide from here. 1982 saw the launch of our colour mixing systems, followed by the first water-based products around the middle of the year 2000. With the introduction of VOC legislation for EU member states from the start of 2007, the WaterBase 900 Series system, in combination with the HS420 3000 Series, has now grown into a complete VOC compliant product range. Since 2004 the company has been part of the Valspar Corporation U.S.A. and this represents a major advance in terms of global coverage.
The Valspar Corporation, one of the largest paint manufacturers in the world, was founded in 1806 and is based in Minneapolis in the US. With over 9500 employees at more than 80 locations, Valspar is in the unique position of being able to satisfy the need for a wide selection of paints and coatings for many different applications.
