The opening event of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Sofidel Group, the second European player and sixth in the world for the production of paper for hygienic and domestic use, took place on the 20th of April in Milan. From a company from the province of Lucca to a multinational - particularly well-known in Italy for the Regina brand - Sofidel is currently present in 13 countries in Europe and in the USA, with a turnover of 1,809 million euro and over 5,500 employees. An Italian organization which has succeeded in interpreting the future with a vision that unites growth and sustainability, recording a 197% increase in turnover in the last 10 years despite the financial crisis.

“If Sofidel’s first 50 years have been characterised by positive results, this is due in part to a constant eye to the future. In present times this, for us, means committing ourselves to being an increasingly responsible company which seeks to face up to markets, products, technologies and lifestyles which are in continuous evolution. Committing ourselves to being a company which, in guaranteeing hygiene and well-being to all of its stakeholders, seeks to respond to the increasing demand for ‘integral ecology’ which is spreading throughout the world”, declared Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of the Sofidel Group.

Sofidel is celebrating its 50 years of activity not only as a simple anniversary, but as a way to reaffirm and relaunch its values towards the future through a roadmap of events. The next appointment is the Festival of Growth, an initiative aimed at creating a veritable map of growth which travels throughout Italy in an itinerant tour which promotes a continuous dialogue among protagonists of growth and development: businesses, creative minds and national and international institutions. Sofidel will be sponsoring the Lucca stage, which will take place on 9 and 10 June.
