The Synteko History
It all started in a laboratory in Stockholm where the chemists at that time producing adhesives had a tendency to drop urea resin at the laboratory desks. What was first seen as a problem due to the difficulty to remove this hard substance was later realized as a possibility to be used at other surfaces. Syntekos first floor finish was introduced right after the end of World War II and the first product was an unmodified urea resin floor finish.
The great break-through came in the beginning of the fifties when Synteko introduced a new modified version. The success was a fact. The Synteko brand became generic, and people wanted to have their floor Synteko treated. In the 70s Synteko was one of the first companies in the world to introduce waterborne lacquers. This competence is still the strength of Synteko.
Synteko started its global expansion already in the fifties. The photo to the right shows a delivery of Synteko floor finish to our partner in Sydney Australia 1964, who at that time already had been a customer for ten years. This is also an attribute that is recognized with Synteko, its long business relations. Many of the Synteko partners have been working with Synteko for many years. The common base on which the Synteko family all work is focus on the specialist and high quality.
