The Pardis Innovation Centre

The auto body painting industry’s most important worldwide research and development center.
It’s the Group’s flagship facility, and has received several major awards at industry events, including SURCAR Cannes.

Relying on Geico’s extraordinary know-how and technological experience, the Pardis Innovation Centre designs, manufactures and tests customized solutions capable of meeting the needs of this cutting-edge sector’s most demanding customers.


It was established in 2009, during the worldwide economic crisis, as a challenge focused entirely on innovation, and caught competitors off-guard once the market recovered.


In 2013, with the inauguration of the new Headquarters in Cinisello Balsamo, the facility was expanded:  an area of 3600 m2 dedicated entirely to innovation, home to over 40 working prototypes that make use of renewable energy sources.
