Franchi&Kim is a brand with a rich history that dates back to the Second World War era when Colorificio Franchi was established in Brescia, quickly dominating the decorative market and becoming the leading company in the region. In 1979, Kim Industrie Vernici was founded, specializing in the industrial paint sector. In 1997, the two companies merged to form Franchi&Kim Industrie Vernici S.p.A., and in 2020, they merged with Damiani Industrial Paints, resulting in the creation of Estalia Performance Coatings.

Over the years, Franchi&Kim has developed innovative products, including water-based paints and tinting systems, continually striving for product excellence and sustainable development.
