Create new horizons.
That’s the power of the twentieth.
Time, as Einstein said, is relative.
Its real value is in how we use it.
Today Futura turns twenty and looking back we can see
just how far we have come in such a short time.
Technological leadership, continuous innovation and automation:
in the context of partnership, they have accelerated our ability to deliver
superior performance for our customers.
We’re twenty. But what we stand for is ageless.
// History & leadership
Futura is part of Faper Group, holding company founded in 2001 by Cav. Fabio Perini, of innovative solutions in converting and paper machines for the world of tissue.
Today, the Group has currently vested interests in engineering: solutions for tissue, sterilization equipment, real estate, innovative start-ups.
After having revolutionized the worldwide tissue industry in the 70s as well as the yachting industry with Perini Navi up to a few years ago, the Group is concentrated on the development of key industries for which its companies are market leaders in their aims of delivering pioneering, innovative and user-friendly solutions in order to meet performance seeking customer needs.
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.
