In the year 2009, the TECHNIMA group acquired MERCALIN: the Scandinavian leader brand in the aerosol marking paint market. The MERCALIN AB company has been created to distribute, with its central warehouse in Gothenburg, spray marking paints all over the Scandinavian countries.

The first TECHNIMA subsidiary was then born.

MERCALIN AB reinvented all these aerosol marking paints but also introduced the first safety spray paint cap ever manufactured in Sweden in 2010.

It's in 2012 that the TECHNIMA group decided to buy the business activity of SOPPEC brand exclusive importer in Sweden and to entrust the management to MERCALIN AB.

In this development logic, but also with the goal of getting closer to their clients, the TECHNIMA group decided to unify its sales force and distribution.

All trademarks, products and Scandinavian customers of the group are now managed by a local team dedicated solely to the specific needs of the aerosol marking market.

A logistics platform is born with a capacity of several hundred pallets, allowing a maximum delivery in 72 hours in all countries.
