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.

The ICT Group at the Tissue World 2019

The ICT Group is pleased to announce its usual presence at the Tissue World Trade Show at booth F/600. The event will take place at the Fieramilanocity exhibition centre in Milan from March 25-27. With over 200 exhibitor companies and beyond 3,000 participants, Tissue World is the main trade show in the Tissue sector worldwide.

Welfare in support of education

ICT strongly believes that education and training are key to personal and professional growth. With this is mind, this year, in Italy, the company once again offered tangible support to the studies of its employees’ families, contributing towards the purchase of school textbooks and refunding university fees and transport costs.

An environmentally sustainable choice

Biological wastewater treatment plants have been successfully set up at the paper mills of Piano di Coreglia and Piano della Rocca. The fact that excellent results in terms of pollution abatement have been achieved since the plants were put into operation demonstrates the effectiveness of the technology used. These plants, based on MBBR technology combined with a final microfiltration step, are designed to discharge wastewater with parameters well below the limits set by the new EU standards.
