Histor belongs to the group of authentic Dutch brands. Such as Verkade, Batavus and Douwe Egberts. After WWII, in 1949, conceived and put on the market by Albert van Wersch, director of the then Varossieau Verffabriek from Alphen aan de Rijn. He was an entrepreneur who met the future in a big way. The name Histor refers to Historia Exit, or 'the past has ended'. Van Wersch made Histor the largest A-paint brand in the Netherlands. More than sixty years later, Histor - thanks to high-tech innovations - is the do-it-yourselfer brand. 

Histor has been part of PPG Industries since 2007. PPG Industries wants to continue to profile itself as the world's leading company in the field of coatings and products for a specific market. Through its leadership in innovation, sustainability and color, PPG helps clients in the industrial, transport and consumer goods sector as well as in the construction and after-markets, to beautify more surfaces than any company. PPG, founded in 1883, has its headquarters in Pittsburgh and operates in more than 70 countries worldwide. Sales for 2014 amounted to USD 15.4 billion. PPG shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange. 

Histor helps home painting the Netherlands by developing new products, colors and inventive solutions that not only make the result, but also the way to it, so much more enjoyable.
