Why we believe in partnership

We view partnerships as vital to business. Inspiring, fun, challenging, working side-by-side with our customers and suppliers means we can play our part in moving the industry towards a more transparent and sustainable supply chain. As Stahl, we work to create a better future for our partners, our people and the environment. Because we are convinced that if it can be imagined, it can be created. Together.


The values that make us tick

As a company, we believe that if it can be imagined, it can be created. To support this belief, we have defined four core values that we use to shape what we do and how we act as individuals and as organization. We put these values into practice every day. No matter what we do. No matter where we are:


We’re better when we work as a team

We take pride in our team of professionals as they make a difference every day. We believe that if we all work together we can open up endless possibilities and create a better future for our people, our business, and our environment. To deliver our vision and mission, we need people who are proactive and want to perform to their best. Working at Stahl, one of the world’s largest chemical companies in surface finishes and coatings, means playing as a team in a versatile, dynamic, and ambitious global company.
