About us

Kerakoll is the international leader in the GreenBuilding sector, providing solutions that safeguard the health of both the environment and the people.

The GreenBuilding Company

Planning for the future with passion, from 1968 to today.

Today Kerakoll is the first company in the world to offer a comprehensive package of GreenBuilding materials and services to build healthy homes and live in harmony with the environment.

Kerakoll was born in 1968 in Sassuolo (Modena, Italy) right in the middle of the most important ceramic district in the world, thanks to the business initiative of Romano Sghedoni.


“The rapid expansion of the Group is demonstrated as well in the growth of its turnover, from around 11 million euros in 1990 to 500 million in 2020 with an employment growth of over 2,000 people.”
