Joachim Buk - new Managing Director of NovoPlan GmbH and De Martin GmbH
A dynamic and leading company for high-quality functional surfaces
With the process developed in the Center for Surface Technology, we offer our partners an extensive portfolio of high-quality functional surfaces. We answer the task definitions, which are usually challenging, and the high expectations of the industry regarding quality and specialisation with an above-average dynamism. As a leading company in the field of functional surfaces in central Europe, we are proud of that which we have already achieved. However, the new challenges that are raised every day by our partners encourage us to move into the future, which we are glad to do.
Technological leader thanks to the De Martin Center for Surface Technology® and unique hybrid coatings
In a very conservative and cost-oriented market, we have a position of technological leaders. This is based on our extensive experience on the front lines of the construction of a company-internal development department, the De Martin Material Laboratory, along with investments in modern, automated production and research facilities. This made it possible to create unique skills in the field of hybrid coatings.
The De Martin Center for Surface Technology gathers together the entire knowledge about functional surface coating. We offer our partners analysis skills for verifications, research and development.
Thanks to the De Martin Academy, we continually train our employees further. This guarantees that knowledge and skills within the company are kept up to date. Our team is the key to outstanding performance and innovative developments.
Prospective market maker for the value-generating coating market
The unique solutions developed by the De Martin Center for Surface Technology in the field of functional surfaces are widely unknown on the market. We want to demonstrate and prove the value-generating advantages to our partners and clients. We therefore gladly invite you to discover our developments and the associated economic and ecological advantages.
Extraordinary client and solution orientation, as well as partner behaviour in all of our actions
As an entrepreneurial company, we believe that we know what our partners appreciate about us aside from our products and services. We are constantly searching for pragmatic decisions and creative solutions and we are truly prepared to go the extra mile. We thus create the basis for a trust-based and cooperative relationship, that can overcome crises if needed. As owner and CEO, Thomas De Martin takes pragmatic and fast decisions, which allows individual client solutions and a high degree of goodwill and comprehension, even in the event of a mishap. His behaviour is an example for the entire De Martin team and thus serves as a model for the company culture. This cooperative and solution-oriented company culture extends across the entire value creation chain: from the joint development with the client to the goodwill and honesty in the event of error rectifications.
Top quality, reliability and efficiency for all applications and oriented according to the client
The clients of a Swiss company expect the highest quality, reliability and efficiency. Along with our employees, our modern, industrialised plants with automated facilities ensure the necessary efficiency in order to relativize the Swiss pay level. Along with a strong and long-lasting process comprehension of the entire workforce, we are committed to the production site of Wängi in the canton of Thurgau.
The company-internal logistics department offers short and fast transport times. At the same time, it increases reliability and reduces nasty surprises and transport damages.
Extensive services and interface skills for the optimal integration in the prolonged workbench
Along with our core activity, coating, we offer our partners many individualised additional services. We thus provide our clientele with competition advantages through the improvement of their own products. This is conducted for example through analysis, counselling or individual developments. In addition, we would like to allow efficient value creation chains through BTO or with additional work on the part. Our extended solutions are sometimes an obligatory component of a product certification, for which we are glad to lend a hand.
An extremely reliable Swiss family company, founded in 1947
De Martin has provided functional surfaces in Hinterthurgau for more than 70 years and three generations. This tradition ensures that we are committed to acting conscientiously and innovatively towards our employees and partners on a daily basis. We know that such solidity is not to be taken for granted, we therefore consciously implement our tradition as a Swiss family-run company in our company culture. We are proud to have successfully overcome generation changes and sector crises. We create trust through clear ambitions and a long-term horizon in company decisions.
A competitive price position that is fair for the performance level
We know that purchasers in our sector regularly test offers and must optimise conditions. A competitive price position is therefore indispensable. Even when opportunities arise where clients become dependent for short periods, we consciously refuse to make opportunistic, short-term profits and prefer to offer fair prices that correspond to the performance level, even in these cases. We see these situations as opportunities for long-term partnerships.
Owner values, attractive and reliable employer with a company-internal surface training centre

We offer exciting, challenging and long-term employment relationships, we expect however diligence, commitment and ambitions in return.
