Since 1922. The origins of Industrias Marca date back to the year 1922, when Antonio Marca Caricchio decided to create a company to produce and sell household dyes. To embark on this adventure, he had the enthusiasm of his 34 years and a long professional career in the sector of dyes and colorants and a solid knowledge of chemistry acquired through his years of experience. With this baggage he set out on a commercial journey which, consolidated by his descendants, has continued until today.
