The “Kohl Company” was founded in 1921 by painter Fritz Kohl in Ratingen-Lintorf. Even today, the office is located at the original location, on Krummenweger Straße. The machine shop, the paint store, the workshop and the social rooms were rebuilt on the neighboring property. At that time Kohl only did painting work.
Heinz - Gerd Kohl
Heinz-Gerd Kohl founded the lane marking unit in the 1960s.
After the death of his father, he continued the company in the name of his mother with the active support of his aunt who worked for many years.
He passed this knowledge on to his son Ralf from childhood on. After the death of his father, he continued the company together and in the name of his mother with the active support of his aunt who worked for many years.
Since 1992, Ralf Kohl has been an entrepreneur, trained painter and varnishing master, business economist and road marking specialist, for the company’s competence and performance.
Through his years of experience, he has gained expertise in the field of markings, as well as in the practical and theoretical. His quality claim is the highest company bid.
For some years, Junior Max Kohl has also been active in the company KOHL markings and now represents the company in the 4th generation. Together with his father Ralf Kohl they are currently working on optimizing a few things and positioning the company in the market in a contemporary way. At that time he was already interested in the marking work carried out by his father’s company. For this reason, he often helped out at a young age in the company, so even then could have learned a lot of knowledge about markers. At the beginning of 2015, Ralf and Max Kohl decided to close the painter area and focus on the markings.
