Marazzi is the most famous brand of ceramic tiles. Present in more than 140 countries, it is widely recognized as synonymous with quality ceramic tiles and symbolizes the best of Italian style and production in the field of interior decoration and design.
Marazzi was founded in 1935 in Sassuolo, a place that has become a top international hub for creating the highest class of modern ceramic tiles and which has grown with the company over the decades.
In fact, Marazzi has been responsible for the main technological, process and design innovations in the ceramic tile industry – some of which have become major milestones in the history of modern ceramics – that have made the company and the district a benchmarkfor the entire ceramics world.
An unfailing flair for research and experimentation, the ability to predict and respond to changes and developments in lifestyles, architecture and design, and the prioritisation of the environment and sustainability. These are the strong points that have enabled Marazzi to rise to the top of its industry, in Italy and internationally, and constantly confirm its leadership.
In the last five years Marazzi has doubled production capacity at theFiorano Modenese and Finale Emilia plants, reconstructed the historic Sassuolo factories and research laboratories, renovated its headquarters with new offices and the new showroom, restored and opened to the public the Crogiolo, the 1930s building where Marazzi was founded, and opened the flagship stores of Milan, London, Paris, Warsaw and Lyon.
Today Marazzi belongs to Mohawk Industries Inc., the world’s biggest flooring manufacturer listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and enjoys amazing international notoriety, both with designers, architects and contractors and with dealers and final customers.
Marble, stone, concrete, metals and paint; endless inspiration. Marazzi’s Grande now includes new surfaces inspired by the finest marble, the tactile individuality of concrete or the mineral appeal of metals, the result of the latest research and experiments with materials.

Quality at Marazzi means quality of product, environmental sustainability and respect for workers’ safety, priorities that have enabled the firm to certify its systems and products. For Marazzi, loving ceramics has always meant respecting the environment, in the sense of the human and natural landscape.
Marazzi is a standard-bearer for eco-sustainable industry and has helped to make ceramic tile production a closed-cycle process. Throughout the entire process, Marazzi has developed a system for the collection and reuse of reject output, process wastewater and the raw materials it contains, and the heat generated in a number of phases. Environmental quality criteria are applied to the entire manufacturing cycle, limiting consumption of natural resources and environmental impact, through the restoration of quarries’ landscape and vegetation, controlled waste management, the optimisation of energy consumption and the recycling of industrial wastewater.
The safety of the staff who work in the plants is another absolute priority: Marazzi performs constant checks on occupational health and safety levels, making any technical and organisational changes required, including through direct involvement of its employees, to whom the company offers continuous educational and training courses to guarantee compliance with the set safety and environmental standards.
In 1994, Marazzi Group was one of the first companies in the industry to obtain ISO 9001 certification which guarantees the quality of the products and services supplied, while its environmental management system has been ISO 14001 certified since 2003. In 2018, Marazzi Group obtained occupational health and safety management certification according to the OH SAS 18001 standard.
