Team

Hello and a warm welcome dear visitors to our RAL COLOURS website. We are delighted that you have decided to visit our website. We would like to introduce ourselves on this page so that you can find out a bit more about us and you can put “more of a face” to RAL COLOURS.

Colour definition and colour design have been our passion for more than 90 years. Having started as a colour collection to standardise processes in industry and the transport system, we have continuously developed new products for you, our customers over the decades. They have made the world we all live in more colourful, but also safer at the same time. This is because clear colour identification always also means greater safety in application.

Nowadays our colour charts and colour sheets are at home all over the world and help our customers from the fields of architecture, design, skilled trades and industry. And how can we support you?

MARKUS FRENTROP
Head of RAL COLOURS

I have been fascinated with the wide range of shades and paint pots since I was young. This enthusiasm for colour has stayed with me ever since and is reflected in the many beautiful projects and collaborations which we carry out at RAL COLOURS. My motivation is the fact that I can help our customers and partners all around the globe to make the world a more colourful place with a colour range consisting of more than 2,500 RAL shades.

Since the end of 2019, I have been working for RAL as Assistant RAL COLOURS, but I truly feel that I have been with the company for much longer. Colourful and diverse - that's the work environment at RAL. Just like a RAL colour fan with all its colour nuances. The job at RAL as a whole and also in the RAL colour team itself is interesting, always diversified and multifaceted, never gets boring and always has something new to offer. Thus, no day is like the other...

Colours are useful for guidance worldwide, also help communication and trigger emotions. They are as multifaceted as people. In the internal sales department I deal with inquiries and orders from a wide range of people from all over the world concerning the subject of colour. It’s fun to be able to work with the community of colours and people every day: colourful diversity!

For many years I have been updating our RAL colour charts with the impression of the company and am able to support and advise our customers in finding the right shade and designing their company logos using our colour charts. The work is very varied and offers international contact and creativity. You can also take the opportunity to use your company profile as a sales aid or advertising material in conjunction without our RAL colours.

Anke Klandt
Internal sales rep

For me, colour is not only a feeling but also a passion and inspiration, which is already reflected in nature. It gives me personally a great deal of pleasure to advise our customers when they choose from the wide-ranging RAL product palette and to be able to help them select a colour from the 2,530 RAL colours which are available. I particularly enjoy advising on our three product groups and the many colour charts and colour boxes.

I started in traditional chemistry and moved to coating chemistry a short while later. I have never once regretted this change so far. Precisely in the area of colours and consequently at RAL COLOURS, it’s always exciting and interesting owing to the constant new challenges and projects, which is also reflected in collaboration with customers in Germany and abroad. I’m delighted that I am able to incorporate the knowledge and experience I have acquired over time here and therefore make a contribution to maintaining the quality of RAL colours.

Hasan Atak
Colour Measurement Laboratory

Already during my school days, I wanted to learn a profession which involves colour. This is why I decided to train as a screen printer where I learned to ensure quality and colour matching when printing. It’s how I came into contact with RAL colours and was impressed with the quality and precision of the colour charts. After many years in the printing industry, I am now working at RAL in the colour measurement laboratory. I am allowed to work on the development and quality assurance for our beautiful RAL colours so that we can provide our customers with very good products also in the future.
