Putting the Finishing Touch on Food
Capol offers a wide portfolio of specialty products and services for manufacturers of confectionery products, food additives (VMS: Vitamins, Minerals & Supplements) and pet food. In addition to polishes, glazes, sealing and release agents we also provide comprehensive consulting services based on almost 40 years of experience in the market and intense collaboration with our customers worldwide. Of course, the compliance with most strict quality and safety regulations is a top priority: Our HACCP program is regularly audited by the independent DQS GmbH and continually receives excellent ratings. While continually expanding our portfolio for the confectionery industry, we plan to also address the needs of the VMS and pet food sector even more in the future. With the acquisition of the Colarôme Inc., Canada, Capol expanded its portfolio with a unique line of natural pigments allowing to create innovative coating products for food applications plus flavor formulations as well as natural vanilla extracts.
More Efficiency for Machines and Plants
Performance lubricants and chemo-technical products for maintenance and repair of OKS offer protection from friction, wear and corrosion. Thanks to 40 years of experience, our high-performance products guarantee maximum efficiency. This includes benefits such as reduced assembly times, easier disassembly and longer maintenance cycles for machines and plants. Due to a close collaboration between our development and production departments, we can rapidly translate new technologies into innovative products. One current example is the development of a fully synthetic oil that is suitable for continuous use at temperatures as low as -60 °C. In order to ensure a strong market presence and provide high-quality consulting services, we offer an extensive network of professional sales partners in the technical trade and oil industry.
