Loba was founded in 1922. We are looking forward to celebrating the centenary year in 2022. This is nearly 100 years of expertise in the field of finishing and maintaining wooden and parquet floors.
Loba headquarters and manufacturing is based in Ditzingen, near Stuttgart, Germany. Today, you will find the Loba brand excelling in its field, in almost every country in the World. Loba believes in the highest quality of standards, which is key to the continued success, development and progress of this Global brand.
In 2018 Loba was purchased by Wakol, a leading German supplier of under floor accessories, such as primers, levelling compounds and adhesives for floor installation. Together they offer connected systems. Adhesives, lacquers and oils manufactured by either company are compatible with each other and work to produce a synergic result. This is almost unique in the flooring industry and contractors can now be sure that adverse reactions can be avoided by using the Wakol and Loba product range. A completely coordinated system can be specified and applied, from the subfloor creation to the maintenance of the floor surface and everything in between.
Loba products bring out the very best in every floor. Both in terms of quality and aesthetic. In the UK, we specialise in the Loba products specific to wooden floors and can offer products in the following areas of finishing:
- Impregnation oils
- Hardwax oils
- Maintenance products
