It’s a big year for FILA! The company was founded 80 years ago by twin brothers Pietro and Guido, who set out to make shoe polish in a small town in northern Italy. Their passion for surface care has evolved through the generations and lives on today as the foundation of FILA’s Innovation Center, where top performing cleaners and sealers for tile and stone are born. FILA products bear the “Made in Italy” label with pride, bringing to the market surface care that is at the heart of Italian historic and architectural heritage.
A go-to source of professional solutions for tile installers and contractors, FILA stays on the cusp of new market trends with scientists and construction specialists that work hard to advance cleaning and sealing technology daily.
At Coverings 2023, visitors will be able to see FILA innovation in action. The FILA Solutions Hub, located at the center of Booth 3134, will host live demonstrations of the company’s leading products. If you need to see it to believe it, then FILA’s Solutions Hub is the place to be, with the Technical Consultancy Department ready to answer questions about the care and treatment of even the most precious surfaces.
In its quest to continue offering solutions for every surface, at Coverings FILA is presenting SOFTWASH SPRAY and WOODCARE PRO, two new products for cleaning laminate, vinyl, and wood surfaces. Their delicate, fast-drying formulas are perfect for floors and small surfaces daily and quickly. Just spray and wipe the laminate, vinyl, or wood with a clean cloth or microfiber mop. Both products dry fast, no rinsing needed. Like all FILA cleaners, SOFTWASH SPRAY and WOODCARE PRO contain up to 98% biodegradable ingredients and are neutral on surfaces.

FILA Solutions is an international leader in systems for the protection and maintenance of all surfaces. Founded in 1943, the “Fabbrica Italiana di Lucidi e Affini” evolved its core business thanks to its current President Beniamino Pettenon, advancing from shoe polish, waxes and household cleaners to products for the care of surfaces, with a turnover of around 22 million euros in 2021.

The entire company is guided by a strategy that puts sustainability at the center: all products are realized with technologies that create low environmental impact, the cleaners contain biodegradable ingredients up to 98% and the water-based product formulas represent 81% of the total production.
