Kerakoll presents its new corporate identity

KERAKOLL, a B Corp-certified multinational operating in the building industry, has presented a multi-year project to redefine the group’s corporate purpose and brand identity, developed in partnership with global brand consultancy firm Interbrand.

The new corporate purpose of ‘To bring together passionate thinkers and makers to build better places to live’ reportedly sums up Kerakoll’s commitment to involving all stakeholders along the entire value chain, with the aim of creating better places to live.

To do this, the group says it’s taken on the role of an aggregator of passionate people: employees, architects, engineers, craftspeople and end-users who propose and implement innovative ideas and projects every day.

Interbrand was able to redefine the strategic guidelines of the Kerakoll brand, through extensive internal and external insights research aimed at identifying the status quo, along with future aspirations. Working closely with all corporate functions, Interbrand came up with customized processes for Kerakoll, using an inside-out and outside-in approach.

‘Building Better Together’ encapsulates the brand’s new trajectory centered around internal and external guidance for business decisions.

‘In line with our nature as a B Corp, awarded in 2023, Kerakoll’s challenge for the future is to make a positive impact in the construction industry and society as a whole,’ commented Fabio Sghedoni, VP of Kerakoll Group. ‘In a highly fragmented and complex industry, we’ve had the courage and ambition to evolve: from being a supplier of materials fulfilling our clients’ functional needs, to a platform bringing trust, efficiency and excellence to the entire supply chain, combining business objectives with positive goals for all stakeholders.’

‘In an industry driven mainly by technical and operational aspects, our new narrative focus is on benefits for people and the environment,’ underlined Alessandro Dondi, brand marketing and communication director of Kerakoll Group.

‘Together with the Interbrand team, we revised the logotype and the visual and verbal identity, the architecture of the entire offering and the packaging system. The new brand identity was driven by experimental and experiential research, aimed at exploring how materials and colors affect the relationships between people and the places they live in.’

Again in collaboration with Interbrand, an internal brand engagement project known as the K Program was developed in 2022. The initiative delved into people’s various needs and allowed them to become co-actors in the evolution, contributing to defining the new corporate culture, and strengthening the brand’s leadership.

‘We’re particularly proud of the partnership with Kerakoll,’ said Manfredi Ricca, global chief strategy officer at Interbrand. ‘The evolution of the Kerakoll brand stems from the organization’s desire to forge a deeper connection with all its stakeholders, from employees to partners. While the ‘why’ – creating better places to live – broadens Kerakoll’s role in people’s lives, the ‘how’ – Building Better Together – represents an effective and pragmatic decision-making strategy.’
