Paper producers for more than a century

Over the last century, the development of Cartiera Confalone went through the production of flattened paper and crepe paper until its conversion to tissue paper in the 1960s.

Every day Cartiera Confalone has a goal: producing quality tissue to be offered to the market.
Cartiera Confalone has undertaken a path aimed at operational and technological excellence that today distinguishes the company in the panorama of Southern Italy for tissue production and converting.
Cartiera Confalone improved its production capacity with the implementation of a new paper mill machine Toscotec AHEAD 2.2. A strategic investment that significantly raised the level of technology in Southern Italy for tissue production.
This paper mill machine is among the most advanced for tissue paper production thanks to its operational and manufacturing efficiency; it features innovative technologies that ensure improvements in the sustainability of the process and guarantee the achievement of premium quality while preserving the consistency and softness of the finished product.
The new paper mill machine is dedicated to the production of jumbo rolls intended for conversion into toilet paper, kitchen rolls and napkins.
Thanks to this new asset, Cartiera Confalone achieves an improvement in energy efficiency with a trigeneration plant for the joint production of electricity, heat and cooling and a gas hood plant with energy recovery, and also records lower consumption of fresh water due to the improved efficiency of process machines and a reduction in atmospheric emissions at every stage of production.
Integrated and automated production chain.
The converting process of jumbo rolls is carried out through technologically advanced lines that guarantee the excellent quality of the finished product. Cartiera Confalone has converting lines for the production of rolls (double-height toilet paper, kitchen rolls and industrial reels made with DESL and point-to-point) and one-ply, two-ply and two-ply point-to-point napkins.
The converting cycle in each step preserves the technical specifications of the paper, improves its performance with embossing and enhances the beauty of the roll with perfect cutting and winding.
In order to further increase its ability to develop innovative products for the market and optimize production times, Cartiera Confalone has recently introduced a new roll converting line that will feature a state-of-the-art flexible embosser with automatic roll change without machine downtime and a 4-colour printing system.
