Current Situation and Strategic Vision

According to the latest forecasts, in Italy, the current year will close with a public debt of 194 billion above the levels of the end of 2019 and with a GDP of -10.5%. The Italian economy, therefore, which already showed clear signs of stagnation, suffered a strong backlash given by the spread of the pandemic. Despite this situation, at A.Celli, we did not want to bend to the logic described above and we tried to look further ahead.

In fact, during 2020, A.Celli Paper took an important strategic step: the acquisition of PMT, a historic company operating in the machinery sector of the paper and tissue industry. With the entry of PMT into the perimeter of A.Celli Paper, the range of products and services was expanded and completed, thanks to the synergies that have been created between the organizations.

In particular, the technologies developed in the field of packaging papers, cardboard, cardboard, graphic papers, etc. they were again made available to Italian and foreign customers thanks to the skills and know-how acquired. Strong impetus was given to customer service in order to guarantee continuity and reliability of service to those who still use the former Beloit/PMT technologies.

Maintaining this wealth of knowledge in Italy, in a strategic sector such as that of paper production, has meant making an important choice that will benefit the entire supply chain, including the district of Lucca.

Technological Innovations

A.Celli Group has developed a series of solutions that use the logic of artificial intelligence (AI) in the form of machine learning to analyze big data in order to determine the operational efficiency of each machine on the production lines of multiple production sites.

The final objective of this process is to provide data processed in real time in order to measure the production efficiency of the individual plant, create information databases to compare the different performances (energy, production, quality, etc.), optimize the downtime for maintenance, interfacing the production departments with management control and various other potentials.
Finally, A.Celli Nonwovens, boasting thirty years of experience in the non-woven fabric sector, specializing in winding, rewinding and reel handling lines, has provided state-of-the-art technologies for the production of this fundamental material necessary for the production of masks, health care, hygiene, etc. to the customers all over the world.
