Description and specialisation

The Villorba paper mill has distant roots and a prestigious history that includes strong links with the world of publishing. The first documents known to be printed on paper produced at Villorba date back to 1680 land registry maps. Over the years the plant changed ownership several times (the Gritti, Polon and Marsoni families) and in 1983 was purchased by Arnoldo Mondadori Editore who in turn sold it to the Sottrici-Bindi Group. In 1997 the plant became a Marchi Group asset and is now part of the Burgo Group.

A story capable of renovation: the most recent investment involved PM 8 in March 2007, the “youngest” line at the plant put together in 1976 and specialized in the production of medium-weight coated papers. The innovations concerned both the paper machine (increased speed) and the coater (improved efficiency).

The mill has attained PEFC and FSC forest certifications.

In February 2008 PM 7 has been shut down permanently (uncoated and brown kraft papers).
