Caesar has been synonymous with porcelain tile since 1988

The gamble that the Concorde Group took on the future of porcelain tile, which in 1988 represented just 3% of Italian ceramics production, has proved a winner. Over its thirty-year history, Caesar has continually invested in the technological development of this material, now recognised globally as a reliable, resistant and aesthetically refined product.

Its experience and investment over the last thirty years have led Caesar to become a dynamic firm that is close to its customers and able to anticipate the trends and challenges that the market poses on a daily basis.
