Over 50 years of experience

With 50 years of experience, we focus on creating long-term value and on sustainable relationships with our customers, employees and partners. We always work on the basis of our core values: safety, quality and reliability. As a family business, entrepreneurship is leading in the way we develop, apply and test.

Go to history


Our vision is that every single customer must be given “best-value-for-money”. We do not want to limit this merely to the product, we also aim to offer a “best-value-for-money” guarantee with our customer relationship. We do this by assisting and supporting our customers where necessary, for instance with the help of our in house laboratory.
Like every other company Griekspoor Thermal Coatings depends on its suppliers. This is why we do all that we can to maintain an excellent relationship with our suppliers, and together we continuously endeavour to achieve a mutual “best-value-for-money”.

is our family business.

Coatings divided in two groups

Group 1 consists of the “hard” coatings. These coatings are applied thermally. This means that an energy source is always used (in the form of plasma, HVOF or laser) to create the coating. These hard, highly wear-resistant, and corrosion-resistant coatings can be finish-ground in order to achieve the specified fit and/or coarseness. We are capable of applying the coatings up to a length of 23 metres, 1 metre diameter and a weight of 20 tonnes.

Group 2 consists of the “soft” coatings. These are epoxy or polyurethane spray paint coatings, in all imaginable colours. In addition to their protective function, these coatings also have an obvious aesthetic purpose.
Within the group of soft coatings, we integrate a hard thermal metal sprayed primer coating, which, in combination with the soft top coating, creates unique corrosion-resistant properties.
