KANSAI HELIOS has completed its acquisition of CWS Lackfabrik GmbH (“CWS”). The deal was first announced at the end of November 2022. The transaction is a milestone for KANSAI HELIOS and strengthens KANSAI HELIOS system supplier strategy. It is in line with the ESG and growth strategy of the company and a perfect complement and extension of company competences, in powder coatings and synthetic resins as well as the existing liquid coating business.
With the closing KANSAI HELIOS becomes the new owner of CWS Lackfabrik GmbH (“CWS”) and its group companies in Germany, USA, Denmark and Poland. CWS is a well-known powder coatings and liquid as well as solid synthetic resins producer, with more than 150 years of tradition and its headquarters in Düren (Germany) with around 250 employees. The company is in its best shape, in terms of revenue, profit, development potential and market shares.
This consolidation represents a long-term development opportunity for KANSAI HELIOS to increase the market position in the coatings industry especially in the field of powder coatings, as well as synthetic resins.

Introducing the latest member of the KANSAI HELIOS Group
Since 1 August 2022, KANSAI HELIOS Wefa has been the youngest member of the KANSAI HELIOS Group. Formerly Westdeutsche Farben GmbH (“wefa“), the company has built up an excellent reputation and a strong market position as industrial coating producer in Germany over the past decades. The company continues its business operations at the previous location in Essen/Germany. It will continue to dedicate itself to the development and production of railway coatings and ACE coatings.
Combined coating know-how
wefa products are part of the group’s comprehensive brand range and clearly complement the existing brand range in the areas of railway coatings and ACE coatings. In the railway segment, KANSAI HELIOS will thus bundle its entire expertise worldwide with two brands: wefa and Rembrandtin.
KANSAI HELIOS is thus strengthening its market position with a second location in Germany and taking another important step towards increasing its competence as a system supplier for industrial coatings in Europe.
