ST Powder Coatings SpA expands its business in Europe and announces the opening of a new commercial branch in Portugal, operating since 2nd May 2018.
ST Powder Coatings has always been in charge of the Portuguese market, which is considered strategical for its high growth potential, as demonstrated by sector data which saw an increase in sales of powder coatings in 2017 of 13.2% (source: CEPE). "Now," said Marco Zadra, Chairman and CEO of ST Powder Coatings SpA, "the time is ripe for being present directly in the Lusitanian territory with one of our branches. To do this we chose a strategic location in the industrial district of Porto, Maia, which is close to important logistics hubs that allow us to guarantee a very fast service to the customer".
ST Powder Coatings Portugal, Unipessoal Lda, wholly owned by the Italian parent company, completes the presence of the Group in the Iberian Peninsula, alongside the Spanish distributor St Powder Coatings SL, based in Fuenlabrada-Madrid and operating since 2007, which also produces the Spray, Liquid Coatings and Color Swatches lines. Thanks to the proximity of the two "sister" companies, the Group aims to further improve the customer service by providing directly on-site technical and commercial support, carried out by Portuguese technicians, adequately trained and in constant connection with the Italian parent company.
With this new branch in Portugal, the Group counts four structures in Europe (Italy, Spain, Czech Republic and Portugal) and a lot of important partnerships with local distributors in the main EU countries. ST Powder Coatings will continue the production at its Italian headquarters in Montecchio Maggiore (VI), guaranteeing the Made in Italy quality that has always distinguished it.
