ABC: a brand with more than 50 years of history

ABC was founded in 1954 in Ancona as a distributor of adhesives, dyes, and abrasives for carpenters and furniture makers.

A decade later, in 1963, a first important change takes place: ABC begins to produce wall paints and to move towards the building sector. To confirm the new direction taken in 1969 it is constructed of a first portion of the production plant of Montemarciano (AN), in which it is developed the production of paints and coatings.

nThe basic stages: the headquarters of ABC is further enlarged in 1982, which the company is equipped with an automated system for the production of water-based wall paints with a capacity of 2,000 kg per hour. In the early 90s, through the development of a skilled labor of technological development, ABC becomes a leader in the local market thanks to a full range of professional finishes for the building sector. This growth leads San Marco Group Spa to be interested towards the company and eventually to acquire it. Under the guidance of San Marco Group Spa the ABC brand begins a major evolution in the market, following a slow but steady course in stages full of bold decisions that will lead to growth in terms of production capacity, technological innovation in the formulation of the products, investments and marketing plans.

May 28, 2006, ABC makes a fundamental step towards the culture of quality that distinguishes the San Marco Group : the production unit of Montemarciano follows in fact the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000, which governs the systems and criteria for quality assurance during design, development, manufacture, application and service. A great business card to stand out in a hyper-competitive market like that of the building coating systems.

The use of selected raw materials coupled with quality control, makes the production to reach a high level of quality.
Since 2010 begins an important process of brand restyling, of all the packaging , graphics and communication. In the following years ABC reaches till today a very interesting development with a long-standing presence, as well as in the local area, also in other regions making known the brand as a guarantee of excellent quality / price ratio .

In a short time the strategic choices and innovations have proved to be winning: the strong growth of this company is really in contrast to a market that seems to have lost enthusiasm and facing difficulties.
