Partners in perfomance

Futura S.p.A. is the leading technology company for the manufacture of converting lines in the Consumer and AFH tissue markets. It has earned this reputation thanks Honorary President Fabio Perini, the man who changed the world of Tissue. He has infused the company with his innovative drive, and his vision of a better future based on simple and efficient technological solutions.

This is why Futura has always invested huge resources in R&D. Within Futura Lab, the facility dedicated to experimentation with the latest generation lines, it tests new technology and automation solutions aimed at eliminating waste and simplifying production systems for increasing efficiency, safety and integration.

Following the acquisition of Plusline, the theme of integration between converting and packaging has become increasingly central at FuturaLab, resulting in a seamless process from mother reel to a shelf-ready pack of toilet roll or kitchen towel, ready for the consumer.

Recently, in addition to Tissue, Futura has also applied its technological know-how to the development of integrated solutions for the Nonwovens sector, exporting some proven innovations, such as the Create calender and Andromeda handling system, to a segment that is already appreciating the significant benefits.

This was the first idea, and the first patent, in a long series of technological breakthroughs that in just a short while would redefine the concept of tissue converting.
