A Group of innovation where people remain the center of every solution.
Fabio Perini was born near Lucca into a family of paper entrepreneurs. At the age of 17 he had already patented his first device for process automation in paper manufacturing. 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. Since then he has dedicated his career to the creation of new industrial models and technology innovation.
He was nominated ‘Cavaliere del Lavoro’ in 1991.
