Key facts and figures
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.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communiqué

ICT SpA is constantly and carefully monitoring the spread of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19), in order to identify the necessary preventive measures to guarantee the safety of its employees, their families, collaborators, suppliers, customers and the community, in accordance with the indications of Health Authorities and in compliance with local and national regulations.

A Crisis Unit has been established to manage the emergency, whose task is to analyse the internal situation and the evolution of the measures issued by competent authorities, highlight potential risks connected to the activities, identify possible containment measures and coordinate their application in the field while assessing their effectiveness.

Among the main measures taken, we would like to highlight, by way of example:

  • Information campaign on the proper individual behaviours, inside and outside work situations
  • Controlled access and restrictions in common areas
  • Special plan to reinforce hygiene and health measures
  • Widespread application of smart working for all roles where this is possible and closure of non-essential company departments
  • Stop to business trips and meetings and intensive use of tools to perform remote meetings.

Safety is our primary objective while respecting the regulations in force and our employees, according to the principles that we have always upheld.

The company is fully committed on every operational level in this regard and it will use all the necessary resources to preserve the continuity of the supplies.

We believe that a responsible and careful attitude is beneficial to ourselves, our colleagues, our families and the community, and it will allow us to manage this difficult phase in the best way.

The new compressed air production plant and related heat recovery system is now operational at the Piano della Rocca facility

At the Piano della Rocca paper mill, the new compressed air production plant and related heat recovery system are now officially operational. As expected when designing the project, the technology implemented saves a considerable amount of electricity and, as a result, reduces CO2 emissions for producing the compressed air required for the entire production facility. The new machines produce compressed air more efficiently and, unlike the previous setup, are powered by variable speed motor, ensuring the highest level of performance under any load condition. Moreover, the new compressors are equipped with a heat recovery system from the cooling circuit. This heat, which would otherwise be dissipated, is used to heat up water to supply the entire heating system and sanitary water of the newly built offices and locker room at the facility. These projects prove the ongoing commitment of the ICT Group to energy efficiency, sustainability and environmental protection.
