The current location of the paper mill is an historical building that goes back to the earlier Twenthieth Century, where many working activities took place, in particular the production of yarns and fibre boards (the same used by italian emigrants for their suitcases).
At the beginning the family Stefani produced a kind of paper called "camoscino" due to the coulour havana. This was produced with production scraps of carton. In the Sixties this paper was used to wrap everything including bread. Successively they passed to the production of silk paper, made with production scraps.
At the moment silk paper is produced with production scraps or tissue production.
In 1980, our company became Cartiera Val di Lima S.r.l, but at the beginning of Sixties the family Stefani, who was attracted by the setting of this mill along the bank of the river Lima, had already increased the packaging paper production. In those days,in fact, it had a very favourable position for paper production and electricity. Already in those years there was a system for the production of electricity, that permitted the indipendence of the mill from the public network.
Now we are at the the third generation and grandfather Leonildo Stefani can be sure that the path he started, will keep on. The company, that is conducted by the Family Stefani, remains one of the few family-based papermill. In the last years, thanks to innovation and research we have obtained different products depending on the packaging required. Investements on machineries, tecnology and natural resources enabled us to have a constant production both at a quantitave level and a qualitative one. These aspects and together with consistency and avaibility towards the costumers, present us as reliable and trusted partner both on the national market and on the european one. From the Nineties, in fact, the company export in the european markets of: The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Romania, Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, and to the extraeuropean market such as China and Tunisia.
