Customer Portrait: S.A. Giuseppe Cristini S.p.A.

Italy is a bastion of paper production in Europe. It is where the Cristini Group has been successfully providing the paper industry for over 90 years with high-quality textile machine clothing. The Cristini Group can trace its origins right back to the mid-18th century, however. Cristini is deeply rooted in the tradition of the region around Fiorano al Serio, near Bergamo in Northern Italy, which itself has had close connections with the textiles industry since the Middle Ages. On this basis Cristini, family-owned and now in its second and third generation, feels a strong obligation towards its customers in the paper industry. Click here for more information
