Our history


Founding of the company Robert Kraemer as a commercial enterprise in Bremen

Robert Kraemer founds his trading company.


We now deal in natural resins

Since 1928, KRAEMER has been trading not only in honey, milk, wool and other goods, but also in natural resins such as rosin. This was the important and decisive step towards today's product range. Since then, KRAEMER has developed into a manufacturer of high-quality and bio-based resins and binders.


Wow! Largest importer of rosin in Germany

Barrels and barrels - full of rosin. This is probably what it looked like on Robert KRAEMER's premises back then.


We establish the "Lackharzwerke"

A daring step! Paints and varnishes were in demand, and for that you need resins and binders. A jump into the deep end that was worth it.


Industrial production of rosin-based resins in Bremen

Finally, the time has come: our first "real" reactor goes into operation and secures KRAEMER the "mass production" of rosin-based resins.


Laying the cornerstone of the present-day main plant in Rastede

Our main plant in Hahn is the cornerstone of our business. From here, we send our resins all over the world. But a lot has changed since the foundation stone was laid. We have become even bigger, more modern and more productive. Since then, the workforce has grown a lot too!


We want to grow: Building the Delmenhorst branch

Our branch plant in Delmenhorst. We are increasing our production capacity.


We research and develop: Establishment of an R&D laboratory

A dream came true! Right at the forefront: our own developments from our own laboratory.


Disposal of all waste water and gas via thermal post-combustion

The installation of our post-combustion plant is another milestone.


There’s more: Expansion of production at Rastede with 20t reactors

Since 1994, we have been the proud owners of additional, large reactors. The most modern that could be obtained at that time was installed at our plant. Thus, we combine quality with quantity for the benefit of our customers.


We develop radiation-curable resins

Our R&D laboratories are now also researching radical and cationic UV systems. Many of these bring ecological benefits. Unique at the time!


There’s more: Opening of a central warehouse, administration and R & D building in Rastede

Finally, the time has come: All obstacles are out of the way and we are building our new warehouse and a large building, where not only the administration will move in, but also the R&D will get brand new laboratories.


Aiming high: Construction of a new high-rack warehouse in Rastede

State-of-the-art, effective, safe - that is our new high-bay warehouse.


100 years Robert KRAEMER

We are building a new production site in Rastede
