In Memoriam

In Memorium Coert Polman 1Haarlem, July 5th 2018

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden death of the founder of our company, father and father-in-law Coert Polman.

Throughout his career Coert has spent a lot of passion and dedication in using effect pigments for the most diverse products.

In the beginning of the eighties he founded a European branch office for the American company Mearl, a producer of pearlescent pigments, later acquired by BASF.

In order to respond to the rapidly growing demand for glittering effects he started a new company, GEOTECH in 1984. After we were able to take over the company from him in 1999, he focused on his other great passion; sailing. Coert made a long journey through Europe to finally settle down in his beloved Italy.

After his return to the Netherlands, Coert delivered a major and crucial contribution to the successful acquisition of the French company Paillettes Et Pigments in 2016 through which GEOTECH obtained its own sales office in France.

Until the very last moment he was active for GEOTECH taking care of the distribution into some French-speaking countries.

Besides losing a great father and father-in-law we also lose a real professional in our industry with a huge amount of know-how which is rarely encountered today.

Coming Wednesday, July 11th, we will say goodbye to Coert. For that reason our company will remain closed throughout that day.
