About Us...


Vernites was founded in 1965 from an idea by Mr. Giuseppe Testa and Ms. Silvana De Franceschi, having gained extensive experience in a company of international renown. 

The company initially produced solvent-based products for wood in Italy but the vision of Mr. Giuseppe, already by the early nineties, has guided the company towards water-based paints. The business expanded its boundaries and went nation-wide. Over the years, his three sons have joined the company: Fabrizio, Alessandro and Paolo. In 1995, the company decided to discontinue the production of solvent-based products, the success of the water-based products leading the creator to make changes to production. Years of substantial investment followed focusing on increasing the production capacity with the image of the company being transformed from small-scale to industrial. The distribution of the product nation-wide expanded towards Europe. The logistical space was expanded to include the administrative and sales offices, the warehouse and an applications and training room. Today Vernites, thanks to the experience gained and its highly qualified partners, offers quality, cutting-edge and technological products able to satisfy any request. This is the result of the commitment of all the employees who have worked for years in Vernites and that have allowed us to accomplish our vision.

Vernites About Us...

Research and Development

The CULTURE OF QUALITY is a leading feature for the Vernites business, as evidenced by the corporate policies adopted in each sector and operational role, from production to satisfaction of its own interlocutors.

The research laboratories are an integral and distinctive part of this strategy, in which a staff of highly qualified professionals work, new paints are created and rigorous testing is carried out, which the company applies to the entire production process.

Investments in technology and upgrades in production that have characterised the Vernites business in recent years have allowed the company to be competitive in all markets of reference.


At Vernites we don’t leave anything to chance and as such, we are masters of our destiny, from production to distribution, from support to warranty.

This gives us freedom and independence in our decision-making. To make a water-based paint product is more difficult and more complex than making a solvent-based product, requiring skilled, trained personnel and facilities that must be equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

The versatility of the materials, equipment and the means needed for production, allows us to respond to any type of request and to changes already in place. This characteristic offers a range of products that covers 360° of market demand. The high quality and extensive knowledge in application are the bricks with which we build our success.

We devote considerable attention to creating products with low environmental impact. Not only do we abide by all the relevant laws and regulations in force but we also exercise pro-active management. Our objective is the realisation of a complete project, consideration for the environment and safety in all areas of the company and in all processes. Our attitude toward employees and clients is focussed on people and their needs.
