Building on 300 years of manufacturing heritage, Fassa Bortolo is one of the leading companies in external rendering and integrated building solutions.
A historic name in the world of construction, Fassa was founded in 1710 in Spresiano, Italy. This family-owned business continues to prides itself on the quality of its products, as well as its commitment to ethical quarrying and raising the bar for innovation.
Offering a number of render systems for any build, new or old, Fassa has a total of 18 production facilities across Europe, employing more than 1000 members of staff in countries including the UK, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland.
With a concrete set of values, Fassa continues its legacy in the same way it always has – through respect, care and quality for its people, products and the environment.
Fassa has a made a huge commitment to its environmental responsibilities, gathering its raw materials in the most sustainable way and processing them within 60km of the quarry. Two key components are mined from the land; calcium carbonate (lime) and gypsum, both of which are extracted with the most advanced quarrying technologies.
Currently, Fassa’s limestone and gypsum quarries are products of environmental remediation, whereby the excavated land will be reused at the end of its operation.
Fassa understands research is essential to improve and develop its products, which is why the company operates its own dedicated research facility in Italy. With an advanced laboratory hosting cutting-edge equipment, researchers study the raw materials to create formulations, which guarantee superior quality.
After centuries of product development, Fassa offers a vast range of systems and products to meet the needs of the UK building industry, with a solution for every project – from small build projects to large construction sites. Since the start of UK trading in 2014, a number of Fassa systems and products have also been awarded British Board of Agrément (BBA) Certification to extend the offering of Italian manufactured systems to the British market.
