LATICRETE International has acquired BENFER SCHOMBURG S.R.L. BENFER is a leading producer of adhesives and sealants for ceramic and natural stone floor and wall coverings, with an impressive track record of growth. The general management of the company will continue under the direction of Giorgio Cocchi, previous owner of BENFER, with the support of Eddy Bonucelli, LATICRETE Regional Director of Europe.

The facility also has the capacity to produce the additional volume from Laticrete Europe SRL.
