The world of Fedrigoni products is constantly expanding, like the Marvel universe. Every year there are new products and new stories: prequels, sequels, technological advances, imaginative leaps, transformations and developments both inevitable and unexpected.
New acquisitions by Fedrigoni Group – including Zuber Rieder and the R&D Centre in France, Guarro Casas in Spain and the Quzhou mill in China – bring together like-minded companies: agile manufacturing, small to medium machines, a strong heritage in papermaking and a spirit for innovation.
Absorbing new technologies and different traditions of papermaking brings together more ways of tackling the challenges of improving both eco footprint and performance for packaging and print applications. It is a growing, learning network, with Fedrigoni at the centre.
The northern Italian company Cordenons, which has made paper for nearly four centuries, joined Fedrigoni Group five years ago. Its new identity myCordenons stresses the customisation possible with papers from its mills, nestled in the verdant hills of northern Italy, in Cordenons in Pordenone, and in Scurelle in Trentino.
The first mill was established by Count Avanzo of Cordenons in 1630. The Galvani family acquired the business in 1730, and it became the official paper supplier to the Venetian Republic. After major renovations in the 1980s the mills became Gruppo Cordenons in 1990.
Cordenons’ reputation lies not only in its papers – more than 2500 products across 60 brands – but also in its made-to-measure solutions, often developed for luxury brands – from fashion, to cosmetics, to the automotive industry.
