Who we are

Who is San Marco Group?

San Marco Group is market leader in Italy for the production and distribution of paints and varnishes for the professional building sector.

With a portfolio of 7 strong and well-balanced proprietary brands, with the far-sighted vision of the Geremia family over 80 years of history, the Group has evolved to become a benchmark company both at a national and international level.

With our ongoing investments in production and Research & Development, and strategic choices in acquisitions, the San Marco Group has developed a full range of paints and solutions for the building industry to meet all the market’s needs.

All products are designed in the Italian R&D center, while production is divided between Italy, Bosnia and Russia, with a total of 7 production plants that produce for all the Group’s brands.

Each brand has a precise role and positioning, and the Group enhances its peculiarities by reducing overlaps, exploiting synergies and economies of range, enabling therefore a widespread diffusion of the brands in Italy and abroad.
