In 2003, cousins Mauro Celli and Alessandro Celli – who today serve as presidents of the two companies – decided to restructure the family company founded by Alvaro Celli in 1944. The idea was to create two specific companies – A.Celli Paper S.p.A. and A.Celli Nonwovens S.p.A., the first dedicated to tissue, flat papers and cardboard and the second to nonwovens. A continuous growth that set the foundations for the creation of the A.Celli Group, opening the way to major development in terms of visibility and results for both business areas.

Focusing on long-term partnerships and on an intense R&D activity, the Group is today a global reference in its fields. And as a solid demonstration of this commitment, the Group’s R&D department has recently developed a new patent for the Steel Yankee: a new manufacturing technology allows the entire shell to be forged from a single piece of steel with no welds, and it can be used for all diameters on a single wire (3m), while for twin-wire (6m) only the circumferential weld is necessary.
