History

Sud Marmi was founded in 1980 by Prof. Mario Pellegrino who gave the company a good and far-sighted organization that led it to success first in the Italian market and then in an international scale.

By the end of the '80s, Sud Marmi began to export to the Middle East countries as a result of a growing demand of Perlato di Sicilia marble. From that moment on, Sud Marmi addressed its resources, skills and expertise almost exclusively to the export which turned out to be essential for the booming development of the firm.
In the early Nineties, because of the crisis in the Persian Gulf, this process slowed down. The situation spurred the firm to carry out a different strategy, based on a new segmentation and diversification, both aiming to an increasing commercial expansion. Sud Marmi is now selling its products in the main international markets of North America, North Africa, Middle East and Far East.

The active collaboration of the founder’s sons, Vito and Francesco, boosted the company to stand out in terms of dynamism and quality at the beginning of 2000s.

The company, thus enlarged and completely modernized, bought two quarries, increasing its trade with two of the most demanding markets, namely the North and Central European ones.
With a potential production capacity of more than 900,000 sq.mt. per year, Sud Marmi is today one of the leading companies of the Italian marble field.
