About us

The owners family of GEOTECH has a background in the distribution of special effect pigments with over 40 years of experience. Mr. Theo Polman started offering natural pearlescent pigments made out of fish scales in the late 70’s. During the 80’s and 90’s GEOTECH became a well-known supplier for glitter flakes being the first company who introduced glitter into the cosmetic industry.  

Since 1999 the company is managed by the third generation who opened a fully equipped laboratory for quality control, technical service and product development.

In 2014 SGS certified GEOTECH’s Quality Management System based on the ISO 9001 and GMP standard. In the same year we became an official approved supplier of the Estée Lauder Companies. 

In 2016 GEOTECH acquired Paillettes et Pigments Sarl (PEP), a French distributor of special effect pigments. After the integration, the PEP office remained open as a sales office for the French market.

In 2018 GEOTECH moved to a new location in Haarlem, The Netherlands. A 2.700 m2 facility which previously belonged to Mearl International B.V. (Engelhard) was renovated thoroughly. New insulation was placed and solar panels with LED lights installed to meet the latest standards.

Now a days GEOTECH’s special effect pigments are being used globally in various industries for a variety of applications. A sales network with exclusive distributors make us a reliable partner. Product development, colour trend forecasting and support in formulating create high added value for customers and partners every day.
