ICT SpA: leading a Group known worldwide for its commitment to excellence

Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti (ICT) was founded in 1976 in Italy, in the Lucca province, to operate in the tissue sector, producing high quality paper exclusively from virgin fibre. The first production facility was opened in 1978 in Piano della Rocca, Lucca, and over the years new plants and facilities have been set up in Piano della Rocca, Diecimo and Piano di Coreglia. The Foxy brand, one of the leading brands in the European market, was launched in 1982. ICT is an example of excellence in the paper industry, in full harmony with the tradition of the Lucca region, where the most important Italian papermaking hub is located, on a par with those of Green Bay (USA) and Fuji (Japan). In Lucca in particular, great expertise has been nurtured in the field of paper for household use, and the city is in fact known as the world tissue capital. Today, ICT SpA boasts an annual production capacity of about 160,000 tonnes.

ICT supports education

At ICT Italia, we recognise the importance of education in achieving professional and personal growth, which is why in 2019 we will once again translate this idea into action with the “Study with ICT” call for applications, aimed at supporting our employees’ families by purchasing school textbooks, from middle school to university, and covering university enrolment and tuition fees for their offspring. This initiative has been in place for several years now and has been very well received by our staff.
