Dofine

Under Hans' leadership, the paint factory he took over from his father grew bigger and bigger. In addition to paint, the demand for other decorative wall finishes increased more and more, so he shifted his focus: "Over the years, Dofine has been transformed into a creative company, which you can actually call more of an interior & architectural brand. New products are designed and developed in the design studio. We try to be the extension of the architect when it comes to translating their ideas and concepts into finishes. Dofine is located in the higher segment of the interior world and therefore cooperates with well-known Dutch (interior) designers, architects and suppliers from Europe. We can assist architects with interior designs. We also do the total design of hotels and restaurants ourselves. Our specialization is decorative finishing. We know a lot about color, design and texture but that is expanding all the time, such as 3D printing," Hans said.

Entrepreneur's Tip

"Make sure you remain the entrepreneur and that you are not too much lived by others. Keep doing things you enjoy and make sure you can live up to the expectations of others. Be surrounded by young people. They have a lot of new insights and I think that's really great."
