À propos

Incorporated in 1960, our client is a group originally specialised in decorative painting. Having remarkably imposed its presence on its core market, the group further expanded in other activities, through successive well-targeted acquisitions of companies with exceptional know-hows, in different, however complementary, activities, with similar or related customer and prescriber networks, in order to maximize synergies.

The group is now composed of various companies, with leading positions in their respective domains of activity. It is organized around 7 main know-hows:

– Decorative painting and gilding
– Stone and marble coatings
– Stonework and masonry
– Ironwork
– Art lightings and chandeliers
– Woodwork
– Gypsum and ornamentation.

The group, which generated a 2017 consolidated turnover of €171m and counts circa 1.000 employees, currently works on new and renovation works throughout the world. International sales account for 50% of the sales, for both public and private prestigious clients.


The group owns two Bahrain-based companies specializing in full interior design services, ranging from painting to tapestry, joinery and interior design, with projects achieved throughout the Gulf countries.

They work on high-end luxury projects, with an unparalleled image and references, with projects achieved for the leading families in Bahrein and the region, top level dignitaries and prominent business people, as well as the most luxurious hotels, restaurants, retail and other commercial projects.

Both companies gather 120 employees altogether, broken down in several workshops (decorative painting, furniture/ fit-out, straw marquetry, curtains and tapestry).
