Sestriere Vernici, a history of tradition, quality and passion for colours

The history of Sestriere started in Turin during the years when Fiat was propelled to stardom. Italy was growing, inventing and progressing. The Country had lived the dark years of war, and the future was finally taking the appearances of light colours of compact cars, design and a new joy of living.
Colorificio Sestriere was established during the fifties by the initiative of Luigi Roncarolo. Accurate care for products, passion for properly made constructions and proud of being a family-run company, which is now in its second generation, are still the guiding values after over half century in business.
These days Sestriere Vernici still works in the Industry & Architectural. It is present outside Italy in over 12 countries and operated in France and Romania directly with two branches. The foreign share is around 30% of the turnover.

The values that make Sestriere stand out: Technology, Environment Sensitivity and Partnership

Sestriere launched successful ideas over the years, such as the first solvent and water Tintometric Systems with solvent-free pastes, which these days are standard on the market, thanks also to the tintometric software owned by Sfera and Sfera Match Color Sestriere.
Furthermore the production widely used low environmental impact technologies thanks to a team of researchers who have always committed to develop the best technology available on the market to carry out environmentally-friendly products. Environmental sensitivity is a guiding value which also results in the compliance with working standards in factory.
Sestriere’s approach is increasingly partnership oriented with an online and personal assistance service, and with innovative resale concept dedicated to retailers to increase their turnover.
