Cromology produces more than 200,000 tons of paints per year in its 9 production sites. All are OHSAS 18001 certified and the very large majority is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Cromology distributes its paints directly to its clients or in its integrated Points of Sale, through its 7 logistics platforms.
Having full control over the production process, from purchasing and processing the raw materials to delivering the final products, guarantees quality, traceability and reactivity for clients.
A production cycle in three steps
The first step involves preparing the raw materials before they are mixed in tanks. This step is known as dispersion.
IThe idea is to produce the basic mix for the future paint by incorporating the materials into the smallest amount of liquid possible while preventing any “lumps”
An operator programmes the required formulation into the computer and the different materials are added in the right proportions.
Thinning is the third step and involves incorporating additives into the slowly rotating mixers. Once thinned, the quality of the paint is checked. After quality control, the paint is forwarded to the packaging area, where it is poured into pots of all different sizes, depending on the order.
Logistics and Supply Chain
The logistics and supply chain teams are laser-focused on delivering a superior service by making sure that products are available for each customer.
The aim is to achieve the highest levels of agility throughout the supply chain, from managing information through to delivering products to customers, as well as streamlining the flow of raw materials and finished products, forecasting sales, planning production activities, fulfilling customer orders and keeping stock levels under control.
