ABOUT US

Silberline Start

Throughout time, the bright, reflective qualities of silver have generated visual appeal, attracted attention and created desire. Silver makes objects sparkle, stand out and defy indifference.

It is with this distinct awareness of the power of shine that aluminum industry pioneer Ernest Scheller founded Silberline in 1945. From day one, his vision was to create a business that would provide the highest quality products and customized service in a manner of unyielding integrity.

Today, Silberline is recognized as a world leader in the manufacturing of aluminum effect pigments, with over 500 employees and manufacturing, technical and research centers in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. But our commitment to outstanding quality and high-integrity customer service has never left the core of who we are. Silberline is still owned by the Scheller family, with Lisa Jane Scheller serving as our Chairman.

Through our network of sales and technical service representatives, along with a global network of independent agents and distributors, Silberline markets and services its products to a variety of end use market categories including automotive, graphic arts and printing inks, plastics, general industry and powder coatings. Silberline’s innovative special effect and performance-enhancing pigments add beauty and value to recognizable products around the world.
