Company History

Impact Coatings was founded in 1997, as a spin-out from Linköping University. The core of the company then, as well as today, was an identified need for coating technologies that are more cost-efficient and environment-friendly than traditional wet plating methods. Impact Coatings has since developed state-of-the-art deposition systems and deposition processes for demanding industries.
