We are a family business
The effort and work of one family has made us into the great company we are today. But we have not travelled this road alone. Our suppliers, customers and employees have been by our side and continue to support us today. We still have a long way to go.
The steps that have brought us this far
The effort of many years of hard work
We started our activities with Clemente Martin Montolio, when, with only 180 m2 of surface area and two employees, we managed to manufacture more than 5,000 kg of vegetable glues and tempera paints everyday.
Beginning manufacturing of the first plastic paints
We started manufacturing the first plastic paints, which allowed us to offer our paints in different finishes (matt and satin), and we even began producing some colours on demand.
Growth at a national level
We began life as a small family business, but when we hired our chemists and our first salesmen, and opened our first store on Calle Marino Albesa in Valencia, MONTÓ began to grow throughout Spain. In only 8 years, our facilities in Alboraya have grown from 1.700 m2 to 4.400 m2. Our presence at trade fairs and points of sale has been established.
Vocation of service and commitment
This decade was marked by the vocation of service and the deep commitment of Pinturas MONTÓ to become pioneers in the paint industry. During this period, we revolutionised the sector by implementing a 24h service.
We also expanded our portfolio of products focused on luxury decoration, launched the MontoMix System, a unique colour manufacturing system for customers, and created our own water and solvent-based dyes for the first time. The factory was also moved to Marines (45,000 m2 of surface area), with more than 9,000 locations.
On the turn of the century, our company began to expand internationally. We increased our product range and started manufacturing under official European certifications (ISO 9001-2000).
Consolidation of the company
We consolidated our company as manufacturers of the highest quality paints, making MONTÓ a benchmark brand in the decoration sector and leaders in the professional market.
During this period, we diversified our production by creating lines specialised in thermal insulation (MONTÓ thêrm), a specific brand for industry (MONTÓ Ind) and our CREA brand, which is specialised for the treatment of metal, wood and multi-surface applications.
