Markas: a family company, oriented towards the future
Today this spirit is being carried forward by the second generation of the Kasslatter family and the Group’s employees, over 9,000 strong. In over 30 years of business we have grown from a few dozen employees into a leading international company in our sector. Along the way we have always believed in the importance of making choices that will guarantee the soundness and future of our company.
Our many long-term investments are tangible proof of the desire of Markas to continue to grow, gradually and sustainably, with respect for ourselves as a family business and with the foresight that has always distinguished us.
