With a tradition in papermaking dating back to 1264 and a client roster that includes Michelangelo, Beethoven and Francis Bacon, Fabriano joined Fedrigoni Group in 2002, benefiting from an important investment program in plants and technology. The merger in 2011 retained skilled personnel, manufacturing and a separate commercial division serving the art, school and office markets in its home territory in central Italy. The mills are also net generators of renewable energy thanks to the intensive use of hydro-electric energy.

Banknote papers are manufactured in Fabriano, thanks to centuries-long expertise in complex security features (the basic watermark was invented in Fabriano in the Middle Ages). Fabriano means not only the expertise to produce very complex banknote papers for many central banks worldwide, but also the capacity of manufacturing and printing holographic products, security threads and stripes in compliance with the extremely strict standards required by the ECB (European Central Bank). Self-adhesive paper and film products incorporating security elements are another important area of manufacturing.

With a production capacity of about 20,000 tons/year, most of which is high value banknote paper, an area of 98,000 m2 and 400 employees, the mill is now the main brasilian producer in security products, special graphic papers and the unique plant to produce banknote paper in Latin America. The acquisition of the company in spring 2015 strengthens Fedrigoni Group as South America’s largest player in the high added value paper sector. The history of this plant dates back to 1888 when the Industria de Papel e Celulose de Salto inaugurated the first paper machine in Brasil.

Fedrigoni Group’s most important patrimony is its employees, collaborators and clients. There are more than 2700 employees in 10 countries around the world: people chosen for their effective and pragmatic approach to work, their drive for quality production and their ethics and integrity. Group personnel implement a Code of Ethics that endorses principles such as transparency, regularity, reliability and correctness in conducting business, especially as regards respect for the environment and safety and health in the workplace. Overall, about 75% of the stable work-force every year attends at least one managerial or technical training course, for a total of about 50,000 hours of training provided every year. Safety at work plays a priority role and every year involves more than 900 employees in numerous and diversified activities, thereby helping year after year to achieve net improvements in indicators for frequency, seriousness and average duration of accidents at work, which are constantly monitored for every company and division in the Group.

Fedrigoni environmental policy governs all production and procurement processes, far beyond just cellulose pulp.

Materica Gesso 120 g/m2



100% of the pulp we buy and use is controlled by FSCÂŽ (Forst Stewardship Commission) and in particular 70% of the cellulose pulp we use has the CoC-FSC certification (Forest Stewardship Council), the remaining 30% is classified as FSCÂŽ Controlled Wood. The fibres used in production come from annual or fast growing sources (cotton, hemp, flax, bamboo); one-third of raw materials delivered to our factories arrives by rail rather than by road.


Checked and used every year in a better and lesser way than in the previous year (water consumption is measured per ton of paper produced).


We are powered 100% by methane and renewable sources (hydro-electric energy, of which Fabriano is actually a net generator). We invested in 3 co-generation plants in the past 10 years, to optimise the use of energy.

45 Environment


We think sustainability means also education, therefore we invest each year over 200,000 Euros to fund projects dedicated to drawing and writing for children and adults around the world, such as The Big Draw, and to preserve the heritage and archives about the science and art of papermaking through the ISTOCARTA foundation.

47 Environment


Continuous growth: not only in terms of skills and technologies but also of financial results. A demanding mission that we accomplish every year, with great satisfaction.

Turnover In a sector where economic cycles are amplified by oscillations in the costs of energy and raw materials, Fedrigoni Group has presented financial statements in the black and growth in business volumes year after year for many years.

Total revenues by geographical area The Group is very strong in Italian and European markets but is also achieving impressive growth in Asia, thanks to its offering of high added value papers and technologies that are difficult to replicate. The American markets will be particularly interesting as regards growth over the next few years thanks to the foundation of Arconvert Brasil and the recent acquisition of Fedrigoni Brasil PapĂŠis and GPA.

More than 125 years of entrepreneurial challenges based of solid and reliable ethical principles, prestige acquisitions and the creation of innovative companies. The Group is privatelyowned and today boasts annual production of aprox 500,000 tonnes of paper, with 14 paper machines, 705 million square metres of self-adhesive products with 7 coating lines. Fedrigoni Group is one of the top five European realities in the sector for special papers with high aesthetic and technological content.

1264 An ancient document in the Historic Archives of Matelica indicates that production of ‘Bambagina’ or ‘Amalfi’ paper was already active in Fabriano. 1717 Giuseppe Fedrigoni founded the San Colombano paper mill at Trambilleno (TN). 1888 Giuseppe Antonio Fedrigoni founded the paper mill in Verona. 1938 Gianfranco Fedrigoni, grandson of Giuseppe, acquired the Varone paper mill (TN), adding it to the existing plant in Verona.

1945 Shortly before the end of the war, the Verona paper mill was completely destroyed during a bombing raid. The family and some employees financed reconstruction using their own savings, without receiving state aid or funds from the Marshall Plan. 1963 The third factory was opened in Arco (TN) to produce the first punched cards for IBM computers in the early days of the information technology era. 1977 The first test batch of Post-It™ sheets was manufactured by 3M using paper made at the Varone paper mill. 1987 The first international subsidiaries were opened for distribution in Germany and Spain, followed in 1993 by Fedrigoni UK and Fedrigoni France.

1989 Arconvert was inaugurated - a new company producing selfadhesive papers. 1993 The Manter company in Girona (Spain) was acquired, dedicated to the production of adhesive papers. 2002  he Euro became the single T European currency: Fedrigoni acquired the historic Miliani Fabriano paper mills, an Italian cultural heritage dating back to 1264; its production range also includes the paper used for Euro bank notes. 2004 Fabriano Security was founded, on the basis of an investment in the Mantegazza company, specialising in security and anticounterfeiting systems. 2006 Inauguration of Fedrigoni Asia. Opening of the Castelraimondo stationery factory (Fabriano). 2009 Opening of Arconvert Brasil, the first overseas production reality for the Group.

2010 Opening of Fedrigoni Austria and Fedrigoni Benelux. 2013 125th anniversary celebration of Fedrigoni. 2014 750th anniversary of Fabriano paper. 2015 Acquisition of GPA in the USA - composed of a corporate headquarters including production, logistics, sales and 3 warehouses – and Fedrigoni Brasil Papéis Ltda comprehensive of 1 paper mill and 1 sales office. Fire in the Verona paper mill: production resumed after 10 weeks. 2016 Acquisition by ISTOCARTA (Istituto di Storia della carta “Gianfranco Fedrigoni”) of the Augusto Zonghi collection of historical watermarks. Quake in central Italy damages the Pioraco mill (currently in reconstruction). Reached and exceeded the budget objective of 1bn Euro turnover.
