Franco Polished Plaster

Franco's was established in 1990 by the director Richard Flanagan with the intention of creating a marmorino plaster capable of high impact and wear. After months of trialling different formulae, Richard and the team produced the product we still use today and have named Portofino. For the last 10 years, Richard's son Joe Flanagan has been part of the company, making Franco's a successful family business. In addition to having in-depth knowledge of polished plaster technology, Richard and Joe have gained a deep understanding of all aspects of the building industry, including working alongside architects and realising the client's vision.
