Color follows Function
PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION STATEMENT OF THE TREFFERT CORPORATE GROUP
For more than 90 years the Treffert corporate group has stood for expertise and vision in the field of plastics processing. Since being founded by Heinrich Treffert Sr. as an importer and exporter of raw materials and adjuvants for the rubber, plastics, paint and chemical industry, the company has offered individual, expert advice. Since then, plastics processors from a wide variety of industries link the name Treffert with know-how, high-level quality and continuous innovation.
With the start of master batch production more than 40 years ago, the company has especially established itself among the experienced European providers of dyes, additive batches and compounds. The motto “color follows function” underscores the corporate ideal, which is focused on innovation today as much as it was then.

We look beyond the horizon, detect trends, exactly analyse needs and tasks and realise individual solutions– these are key elements of our daily work. We see new methods and new possibilities as our chance for innovation. For this reason we keep our eyes on the future, in every direction. Our innovative thinking becomes a source of inspiration to our customers as well as our business partners and colleagues in the industry. We create innovations that secure our advantages and at the same time continue our company’s traditions.
