Internationalisation of production


The results achieved by ceramic factories located in Italy are complemented by those of the 16 companies operating abroad but controlled by 9 Italian groups.

In 2014, the non-Italian production facilities, located mainly in the United States and Europe, produced 76.7 million sq.m and generated a total turnover of 715.5 million euros, including 62% from operations in Europe and 38% from sales in North America.

Italian-owned companies located abroad generated 80% of their turnover from sales in the same market as the factory and 20% from exports within the same continent.
