The Ilva brand products were created in 1946 in Italy, by a company specializing in the manufacturing of wood polish, pigments and repellents, as a daughter company in the international IVM Group.

In its field, the IVM Group is the most important in Europe, one of the first companies in the world that has its seats in Italy, France, Germany and Greece, with its dealerships spread over 70 countries.

IVM Chemicals Sp z o.o. was founded in 2007, due to a market success and a growing sale of the IVM Group products in Poland, under the Ilva brand. The aim of the company is to create a fully integrated process that connects with its Clients through the definition of product and polish cycles that reflect the needs of the Clients as closely as possible.


IVM Chemicals mission is to give technical and innovative solutions to all those who paint wood, from small users to large industrial companies with the highest level of service and product quality.

This mission is achieved through:

  • Its choice to constantly invest into Research and Development. IVM Group invests more than 8% of its proceeds to Research and Development.
  • Its will to ensure continuity to the Company management: from its establishment in 1970, IVM Group, of which IVM  Chemicals is part, has maintained the same ownership over the years, always guaranteeing its collaborators unity and consistency in its strategies, security and reliability in the administration. Today, the resulting stability of its management and collaborators allows the Group to count  on a team composed by the most relevant experts in the field of wood coating.
  • The collaboration with the user. IVM Chemicals Researchers and Technical Assistants constantly cooperate with the Client:   to identify the most suitable cycles with respect to the technical and aesthetical results he wishes to obtain and his  application requirements and  to adjust the products on his plants and support him in optimizing the coating processes.
