Towards the end of 1985, Markas Italy landed its first cleaning contract for the city hospital of Cuneo. The following year, in 1986, Markas Austria was founded and soon awarded the contract for the hospital of Baden. Since then, the company has never ceased to grow and evolve. In 1992, Markas closed its first catering deal with an Italian hospital in the province of Verona, which marked a major milestone in the development of the company. In 2009, moreover, the group experienced a great expansion setting up a further headquarter in Romania.
In 2011, Mario Kasslatter and his wife Haidrun, today president of the Group, handed over the business to their sons Florian and Christoph and his wife Evelyn, which together with their employees carry on the founder’s dream and legacy.
