We are one of the leading companies in Italy and in Europe in the integrated production of tissue paper. Belonging to the Carrara family since 1873, we boast a long history in the production of quality paper.

With 7 production sites in Italy and 730 employees, we produce 300 thousand tons of tissue paper in pure cellulose and in recycled paper serving customers in 47 European and non-European countries.

We are present on the market with solutions for offices, hotels, restaurants, bars, healthcare facilities, industries, etc. (“Away-From-Home”/ Professional Division) and hygiene products for personal and domestic use (Consumer Division)
