Right from the start of activity and the first products developed, Adicolor has always availed of the most innovative production technology, a highly specialized and professional team, and above all, a great passion for traditional paints and for the fascinating field of decorative effects.
The continuous and obsessive search for an always higher quality standard together with the constant desire to improve the results achieved, are the key to creating products to meet the growing demands of customers in all the world, always safeguarding the renowned “Made in Italy” concept.
After more than 30 years of business and despite achieving a leading and prestigious position on the market, we still have the same desire to amaze and astonish that we had when we started off.
Today we are unable to predict what the future will reserve, but in Adicolor we will surely do our best to give it a positive influence, using everything we have learned and will learn, with the desire to bring the name and quality of Italian tradition wherever possible.
The first steps
The history of Adicolor begins in 1987: many hopes and dreams but also many fears.
“I can still see the image of our truck carrying 3, yes, 3 pallets of Adimur to a wholesaler in Bergamo“. Today this statement makes you smile, but for at that time it represented a small yet big success.
The choice to establish an optimal level of customer service and an advantageous quality/price ratio began to prove successful, but it was with the intuition to invest in the production of decorative effect paints that Adicolor really started its evolution.
The company showed an exponential growth and not just in Italy; Adicolor Canada Inc. started its activity. The new production facility began to be constructed in the Milan suburb of Mediglia and 2007 saw the first container that went to China.
In 2012, well-aimed strategic decisions, acquisitions, new sales channels, huge investments on products, image and technology, enable Adicolor to notably increase sales, arriving today to be one of the reference companies in the sector.
