The GreenBuilding Company

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

The GreenBuilding Company

From 1968 to today, planning tomorrow
with the same passion as yesterday’s.

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

Today Kerakoll is the first company in the world to offer a comprehensive package of GreenBuilding materials and services to build and live in healthy homes that won’t harm the environment.

``The rapid expansion of the Group finds support as well in the growth of its turnover, from around 11 million euros in 1990 to 500 million in 2019, and its employment growth, up to around 1,500 current associates.``
