The beginnings of Herkula date back to 1894. At Herkula, we have invested our many years of
existence into the perfection of our craft. The know-how we have accumulated over these years
is unrivalled in the industry. The core business of Herkula consists of the development, production
and distribution of special inks, varnishes and coating materials for the cable and plastic
industries. We maintain two state-of-the-art R&D laboratories which work in close cooperation
with our customers to develop customized solutions for individual requirements. Furthermore,
Herkula brings new innovative products to the market in order to comply with evolving industry
standards. We supply over 475 well-known industrial companies in 66 countries with cutting-edge
products that meet the required high-quality standards. Herkula is proudly characterized by
experience, innovation and expertise.
Development of new technologies
Herkula`s demand on ourselves is to set new standards in the cable and plastics industry.
To meet these expectations, Herkula established a new laboratory in Aachen in 2018. This
location focuses on the development of innovative products for various markets.
Your plus with Herkula!
At Herkula, close customer relations are our top priority. For this reason, we have the
motivation to respond to individual wishes and to realize them in joint projects. With our
specialized chemists as well as paint- and coating engineers, we offer a professional
environment to design new solution approaches, that the market does not offer yet.
Formulation know how
We have acquired our knowledge over the past 120 years.
We are also glad to support you as a source of impulses and inspiration with our many years
of know-how in the field of designing your formulations for inks and coatings.
Herkula was founded in 1894. From the 1950`s onwards we have already been supplying solvent-based
inks to the cable industry and in the 1980`s we began to produce UV reactive formulations. Since
2012 Herkula is owned by a foundation. In 2018 we established our second laboratory in Aachen
(Germany) to increase the R&D capacity.
