The Fedrigoni Group, with 125 years of history behind it, is a leading international player in the production and sale of various types of paper, and in particular high value added paper, security products (such as paper for banknotes and security documents) and self-adhesive items (“converting”).
It is the leader in Italy and Europe by total turnover in the production and sale of special graphic papers.
The group is the owner, amongst other things, of the Fedrigoni and Fabriano brands. Fabriano paper, with 750 years of history to its name, is part of Italy’s cultural heritage and is chosen every year by millions of students and artists in Italy and throughout the world. The Fedrigoni Group produces and markets fine stationery products, which are sold in 11 owned monobrand boutiques (Fabriano Boutiques) internationally.

The Fedrigoni Group stands out for its positioning in top value-added market niches thanks to its superior and constant quality of the product, its breadth and customization of the product range and its level of customer service.
