When, our founder, Kurt Lautenschlager, launched KULA some sixty years ago, he offered his customers veneers and the corresponding sawn timber. Good customers of his included the shipyards of Northern Germany. When Franz Holsten joined the company a number of years later, KULA established itself as a first-class expert in the field of ship interior finishing.

Today, we are the people to come to for all projects in this field. From working vessels to cruise ships: we realise the projects entrusted to us with our wealth of practical experience in line with your wishes and expectations.

KULA is the leading supplier of solid surface materials and laminates in Europe. We supply our customers for projects of all sizes: we have the energy, experience and speed to drive your project forward.

You want your materials to be delivered cut-to-size, ready-to-use and finished? Not a problem – this can all be done in our Production department. We provide a one-stop service for your projects. From the work surface to the sink and decor in a complementary design. We don’t just see ourselves as suppliers, but also as expert advisers. What can a material do? Which is the ideal solution, including in terms of cost efficiency? We develop the right answers to these and other similar questions.

As such, we set great store by the close cooperation between the various departments which have evolved over the course of the company’s history. Our experts in solid surfaces are just one office door away from their colleagues working in the Laminate and Board, Veneer and Production departments. The close integration of our expertise results in major advantages for customers and partners alike. We offer a comprehensive consultation service and always explore the alternative materials and production processes.

The short distances, rapid decision-making and personal contact: all this is only possible in an owner-run company of a manageable size. Our team is made up of 35 employees and is large enough to handle the most demanding projects, yet, at the same time, small enough to offer our customers a tailored, personal and reliable service.

We are committed to ensuring first-class performance and excellence. Our set-up is such that we operate as expert and efficient partners for architects, shipyards and trade companies throughout the entire production process.
