And now, as has been the case for over 40 years, CANDIS’ mission is to
concentrate its efforts on the only real goal that matters – excellence
– and the results are evident in its products, its concern for the
environment and its commercial dealings. Such excellence can only be
achieved by a company that knows how to match that unique Italian
style with the specific needs of its customers. Every one of them.
More than anything else, Candis is a concrete example of the passion of
one family – the Gilli family. Alberto is its founder and his daughter Beatrice became the new CEO in 2013.
The sales management in Italy is constantly focused on providing
domestic distributors with updated demonstrations to show the full
potential of its products, as well as spreading product information
across a far-reaching network.

Middle East and South America represent just some of the markets
that can testify to the quality and efficiency of the work done by Candis.
Moreover, the company has always taken an active part in the most
important international trade fairs, such as Made Expo, Batimat,
Construmat, Construtec, Mosbuild and Farbe.
Much of Candis’ success comes from its continuous investment in
Research and Development and the tireless work done by its technical
department. It is constantly focused on studying and developing new
products that blend stylistic trends with a heightened awareness of
