A family company, passionate about tissue

Centralcarta was founded in 1990 as a converting company and over time has directed its attention towards process integration. In 2015 the acquisition of ICF Industria Cartaria, an old-established Lucca manufacturer, enabled Centralcarta to become an integrated, independent operator on the market. Today the Centralcarta Group has manufacturing sites and an industrial infrastructure located over a total area of 60,000 sq. m, 30,000 sq. m of which are buildings.

Centralcarta is a family company with the second generation now at the helm and upholding the same values as thirty years ago: a compelling passion for technological innovation and an indomitable entrepreneurial spirit.

The synergy between these three aspects has allowed the company and all the people involved in it to focus on process optimisation and the acquisition and consolidation of a high level of technical expertise.

Its passion for the business and for quality led the company to implement and follow rigorous protocols for monitoring the production process from raw material to finished product.

The strength of the group

Market-oriented quality thanks to constant research into increasingly high-performance production and application solutions.

The integration of the entire industrial process enables the group to offer its customers quality, consistency and reliability of supply, characteristics that contribute to the constant improvement of the relationships with customers and their loyalty.

Over the many years we have been in business, we have fine-tuned our production chain as well as organisation to react quickly to any market demand. Today, with the acquisition of the paper mill – integrating the production of raw materials – we can also meet demand with greater control over quality and consistency of supply. Our converting production lines are dedicated to different types of finished product and are often interchangeable with each other. Our sector (Away-from-home) consists of product families with very different characteristics that encompass different worlds: Medical, Bathroom, Food and Industry. Centralcarta is always ready to take on board customer feedback and invest in technology as well as innovation to maintain a high level of quality on top of flexibility.
