Established in 1934 and originally based in Paddington, London, Neogene has provided coating solutions to industry for nearly a century. Producing both inks and coatings initially, Neogene gradually developed into a coatings specialist. Moving to our present site in Watford, Hertfordshire in January 1992, the company began to focus on specific areas of the coating industry, primarily coatings for plastic and metal substrates.


Changes in the ink industry resulted in Neogene relinquishing its interest in producing liquid inks, allowing greater focus on coating developments.  After many successful years producing protective and decorative industrial coatings, the company made the decision to develop a range of performance coatings for glass, ceramics and plastic substrates.

Coatings for plastics became a strength, with developments into automotive interiors, bottle closures, picture frames and visual media.  A range of new water based products followed, developed to offer more environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional solvent containing standard products. 


Export sales grew rapidly, particularly in the glass coating markets and by 2002 Neogene had become a significant supplier of glass coatings throughout the globe. Rapid growth continued and by 2010 the company was supplying glass and ceramic coatings to more than 12 countries outside the European Union.


With a combined experience of 300+ years in coating development and supply, the staff at Neogene have all the skills required to support major brands within the automotive, plastic coating, industrial, spirit distilling and cosmetic sectors. Neogene currently supplies coatings to more than 30, whiskey, gin and vodka brands and is a key supplier to the automotive supply chain. Neogene’s development work  on new colours and surface effects, continues to provide design and marketing specialists with an endless range of possibilities.


Our success is based on strong product performance, supported by an unrivalled level of customer service.

Having some of the strongest products in the coating market is an important asset to Neogene, but this can be of limited benefit if quality and support are not essential to our philosophy.


Neogene has been working with the British Standards Institute (BSI) for more than 20 years to develop our Quality Management systems. Over that period, we have been able to make significant changes in product design, product manufacture, traceability, quality control and service levels, giving our customers the added confidence that we are able to support all their needs.


Having successfully transitioned to ISO 9001:2015, Neogene continues to prioritise quality; more than 10 years without a BSI non-conformance it testament to that commitment.


All our customers can be confident that Neogene is there to support them throughout the development and supply process.
