Caring for IMPROVEMENT /

Innovation has always been in our DNA: this allows us to cultivate and foster the utmost specialisation in an ancient art such as papermaking, always looking to the future.

Cartiere Carrara supports innovation with constant investments in research and development, also through processes and new technologies that can increase productivity and efficiency.

Ma innovare, per noi, significa anche molto altro, come migliorare le condizioni di lavoro per tutte le persone del nostro team e ridurre l’utilizzo di risorse naturali puntando tutto su una tipologia di azienda sempre più automatizzata e interconnessa.

R&D TEAM /

The R&D Team is fully dedicated to technological product innovation. The people on the team are highly skilled and rely on an established network of partnerships with leading paper technology suppliers.

Ogni macchina è un pezzo originale. Il processo costruttivo viene affinato e rifinito per far fronte alle necessità di un mercato sempre più veloce e competitivo.

Whether speaking of continuous machines or converting lines, the Carrara family’s expertise, as master papermakers since 1873, emerges in every production line in the company thanks to our passion, precision, and great care for details.

LAB /

Thanks to our high-tech lab, staffed by highly skilled personnel, we can constantly carry out micro-analyses on our materials and conduct research on new techniques and solutions.

Our in-house lab ensures the raw, secondary and auxiliary materials we use, as well as the products we manufacture, align with all relevant technical, physical, chemical, and microbiological requirements, to guarantee compliance with regulations and the safety of end customers.

PILOT PLANT /

The Tassignano (Lucca) pilot plant allows us to test and assess the technical characteristics of new products and to optimise the production processes required for their manufacture, before they are engineered for mass production.

The “Blue Line” relies on highly specialised personnel and on continuous supervision from the R&D team.

The Cartiere Carrara Group celebrates 150 years of history.

With the acquisition of the Caldaroni Group, the Cartiere Carrara Group is born, paving the way for new growth and future goals.

The Carrara family’s activities are brought back together under the aegis of Cartiere Carrara S.p.A., thus unifying their resources and consolidating their position in the industry.

Mario Carrara’s branch of the family decides to resume the activities previously excluded from the 2002 transfer, starting from Cartiera Carma, of which it had always maintained exclusive ownership. With fresh new impetus, the family re-enters the professional and consumer tissue market.

The turn of the millennium brings new opportunities. Cartoinvest is sold to the multinational SCA.

Cartoinvest becomes the exclusive licensee of the Kleenex brand for Europe, thus confirming its leadership in the European tissue market.

The Cartoinvest Group is founded, and takes control of no less than twelve companies in Italy and in Europe, further strengthening their presence and influence in the industry.

The historical plant in Pietrabuona starts its first continuous machine for tissue paper, introducing remarkable technological innovations in the manufacturing process.

The Carrara family makes its debut in the paper manufacturing business, opening a paper mill in Pietrabuona to make straw paper.
