About Protan expand_more
With over 80 years of experience, Protan has developed innovative solutions for a global market and demanding climate.
Protan UK was established in 1996. At that time, Protan's roofing division had been in business since the early 1970's.
Protan entered the Norwegian roofing market 50 years ago, when it started licensing Sarnafil roofing membranes from the Swiss company with the same name. In the 1990's Protan turned to manufacturing and selling under it's own name.
Around the same time, Protan decided to sell their products and solution in all of Europe, not only in the Nordic market, which in turn lead to the founding of Protan (UK) Ltd.
Protan UK headquarters is located in Warrington, Cheshire, and sells its roofing systems and solutions via a nationwide network of approved roofing contractors.
