We are still here for you!

March 30, 2020

Dear customers, dear customers,

As Managing Director of Deffner & Johann, it is important to me to address you personally today.

Deffner & Johann is celebrating its 140th anniversary. Due to the Corona crisis, the anniversary is under very special circumstances. Customer events and trade fair visits have been paused. COVID-19 presents us all with enormous challenges. Especially now it is important to keep the principles of the last decades in focus: To act reliably for customers, employees and suppliers.

As a company, we have taken numerous measures since March 16 to adapt our processes to the changed situation and to take the best possible precautions for the health of my employees.

Visit Gamblin in Portland

October 17, 2019

On site in Portland

This summer Deffner & Johann had the wonderful opportunity to visit Robert Gamblin and his wife Catherine in Portland, USA. On a beautiful sunny morning Robert led us through his paint factory, showed and explained the production of the paints - it was "Red Day".

Gamblin's company produces more than 200 colors in an environmentally friendly and safe production process in southeast Portland. Gamblin Artists Colors' paints and Gamsol solvent - an odorless solvent - are all non-toxic and lead-free.
