Geotech International B.V. is a dynamic company focusing on the development, production and distribution of pearlescent pigments, aluminium pigments, glitter flakes, mica and carbon black (D&C Black 2).
The owners family has a background in the distribution of special effect pigments with over 50 years of experience. Mr. Theo Polman started offering natural pearlescent pigments made out of fish scales in the late 70’s. During the 80’s GEOTECH became a well-known supplier for glitter flakes being the first company who introduced glitter into the cosmetic industry.
Since 1999 the company is managed by the third generation who relocated the company in 2000 and opened a fully equipped laboratory for quality control, technical service and product development.
In 2014 SGS certified GEOTECH’s Quality Management System (QMS) based on the ISO 9001 and 22716 (GMP) standard. During the same year GEOTECH also became an official approved supplier of the Estée Lauder Companies. GEOTECH’s QMS is built to create a process of continuous improvement. The main target for the system is to become a long term preferred supplier for special effect pigments for their customers. To achieve this target, GEOTECH has to be the commercial, innovative and qualitative number one for their customers, in addition to which GEOTECH strives to zero defects. GEOTECH's quality policy is available upon request.
In 2016 GEOTECH acquired Paillettes et Pigments Sarl (PEP), a French distributor of special effect pigments. After the integration the PEP office remained open as a sales office for the French market.
Now a days GEOTECH’s special effect pigments are being used globally in the cosmetic, plastic and coating industry with an expected total sales volume extending 300 mt in 2017. Product development, colour trend forecasting and support in formulating create high added value for GEOTECH customers and partners every day.
