Dr. Schutz is a family-owned company founded in 1955 in Bonn, Germany. We provide floor renovation and maintenance products as well as services for every type of flooring, including resilient floors (LVT, VCT, sheet vinyl, linoleum and rubber), as well as resin floors (epoxy and PU), wood floors and ceramic tiles.
With a presence in over 70 countries, the Dr. Schutz Group is the leading global player, serving very diverse groups of customers such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools, kindergartens, sport halls and many other commercial, public and industrial facilities around the world. Our permanent Dr. Schutz coating systems (available in transparent, any RAL color, anti slip and ESD) make it possible to restore, redesign and upgrade new as well as existing floors without dust, dirt or noise and without the need to tear out floors, thereby preserving valuable resources and protecting our environment.
In addition to manufacturing and marketing its floor care range, Dr. Schutz sees its main task in the development and advancement of its products in collaboration with floor manufacturers and recognised research and test institutes. This accounts for the high quality standard of the products and the company’s corresponding advantage over its competitors with regard to innovation. Dr. Schutz-branded products have always served to maintain the value of floor coverings and are recommended by leading floor manufacturers around the world.
At the same time, Dr. Schutz also takes environmental protection very seriously. Environmentally compatible raw materials form the basis for our production. Dr. Schutz was the first manufacturer of maintenance and renovation products to be awarded the European Union’s Ecological Audit Certificate way back in 1996 for the company’s location at that time in Bad Pyrmont.
With its move in 2000 to its new production premises in Hessisch Oldendorf / Lower Saxony, the Bonn-based enterprise prepared itself for further global growth as well as to meet future market opportunities.
The new factory incorporates both the production plant and the research and development department in addition to the application technology facilities. It is from here that all Dr. Schutz locations around the world receive their entire product assortment.
In 2001, the company’s headquarters moved to a new location within the city of Bonn. It is here that the company also established its brand new training academy. Specialist seminars are held within modern facilities to bring the latest in floor care know-how to specific target groups. The company’s team of international field sales advisors provides intensive assistance for Dr. Schutz dealerships and professionals around the world, as well as competent support for its customers.
Since 2002 the latest focus has been on permanent sealers for all hard floors. Starting initially with a full range of wood floor lacquers and oils, this was extended to resilient floors in 2003, when the first Dr. Schutz PU Sealer was launched in the market.
Since then, more than 60 million m² worldwide have been protected and refurbished using products from the Dr. Schutz permanent coatings assortment. In this way Dr. Schutz established itself as global market and innovation leader in the field of permanent floor finishes and their aftercare.
In 2007 a further new concept was launched aiming at the restoration and creative redesigning of resilient and industrial floors. PU Design (as the product family is called) consists of an unlimited range of coloured floor finishes, chips and other decorative elements that can be used on all hard floors. Ever since its introduction, more than 3000 selected professionals have been trained and certificated in over 50 countries, thereby creating a global specialist network, which can provide commercial and residential end users with the same accredited service worldwide.
Looking towards the future, the company’s goal is to further develop its service, innovation and creative product assortment to provide its partners with the latest technology in floor renovation.
