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

The company initially produced solvent-based products for wood in Italy, but Mr Testa's vision (he was already in his 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 lead the creator to make the change. 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 products 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 that are able to satisfy any request. This is the result of the commitment of all the employees who have worked in Vernites for years and that have allowed company to accomplish its vision. Vernites is a global coatings and paints supplier which really stands out from the crowd due to it’s Prisma Global Warranty.

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 the 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 they don’t leave anything to chance and as such, they are masters of their own destiny, from production to distribution, from support to warranty. This gives them freedom and independence in decision-making. To make a water-based paint product is more difficult and more complex than making a solvent-based product, it requires 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 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 foundations on which the success was built.

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