About us



Paint runs through our veins

fein_adler_herzADLER-Werk Lackfabrik is an independent Tyrolean company owned by the Berghofer family in its third generation. Until now ADLER has been a family-run business and wants to remain that way too.

We at ADLER leave nothing to chance. That is why we take everything into our own hands. From production to sales. From sales advice to the guarantee. From the product to the processing. This makes us free and independent in our decisions.

As Austria's leading manufacturer of varnishes, paints and wood preservatives, ADLER and its high-tech products are known well beyond the country's borders. High quality and comprehensive application knowledge are the foundations of our success. We value environmentally friendly products. We live by our motto, "Clean work, clean environment".

 „"Ever since I can think, everything with me revolves around ADLER - and that is a good thing. Employees, customers, suppliers – we are one big family!” 

Andrea Berghofer is the granddaughter of the founder of the company, Johann Berghofer. She has been the Managing Director at ADLER 


Our priority has always been on quality and sustainability ahead of doing quick business and thinking about profit. That sets us quite clearly apart from large companies that often only aim to make short-term profits. This has made us into an internationally recognised premium brand.In terms of quality and partnership, the focus is on the customers' needs and customer benefits. Our approach to values, where the employees and customers are concerned, places people at the heart of the company.

We value a long-term favourable development more than short-term success. Our strategic thinking therefore includes dealing diligently with the environment and resources.
