In the Printing Division, besides the printing plates preparation, the Ink-Maker fixes the inks for the printing machines, using a mixing system that, according to predefined formulas, combines basic colours in order to get the right colour shades requested by the Customer. The approved formulas are recorded in our database and recalled again by future productions in order to ensure consistent quality. Prints can be supplemented with additional finishing such as UV varnish and polypropylene coating. The slitting and rewinding machines complete the machine fleet of the Printing Division.

The right combination of creativity, aesthetic sense and excellence makes Fiorini International a European leader in paper conversion for industrial packaging production. The Group was established in 1946 with the aim of producing paper packaging for commodity products. Following the evolution of the market and manufacturers, the first diversification was made and the production range was extended to include small volume packaging for foodstuff. Fiorini International has become the main point of reference for major international brands that look for and require products which suit their high expectations in terms of ecology and image.
Where we are
The development of Fiorini International and the diversification in production has led to the establishment of Fiorini International S.p.A. in 1996. The group expanded further: in 2002 the Italian headquarters were inaugurated in Ripe (Ancona province) and in 2004 Fiorini International Czech Republic was opened in Prague. The company specializes in the production of printed paper reels and small bags for the industrial packaging in the milling (sugar and flour) and foodstuff industries. The international growth has led the Group to strengthen its position in Eastern Europe, in the Anglo-Saxon countries and in the Baltic area, in that way ensuring its customers a constant and active presence.
A constant undertaking to search for avant-guard solutions, innovative graphic, new material combinations and testing original ideas. These are the benefits of Fiorini International who, with a wide experience, in depth knowledge in raw materials and of advanced technologies, succeeds in presenting innovative solutions and high quality custom-made products.
Fiorini International's production is based on German technology. The printing is made on flexoprinting machines from Windmöller & Hölscher, with central drum, up to 12 colours and set with an electronic system which controls constantly the printing quality and allows us to add special finishes such as UV varnishing. The employed technology allows Fiorini International to use its own know-how in an overall production capacity of more than 1.2 billion bags per year.
A product is deemed to be of high quality only if it reassures the customer, the partner and the community during the production process. Fiorini International, over the course of many years, has received different certifications: ISO 9001:2008, BRC/IoP, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001, PEFC, FSC and Sedex. With this code of ethics, the management of Fiorini International aims to reaffirm, in a clear manner, the ethical principles by which it is motivated, and which all of its employees and external partners have the duty to follow in performing the activities relevant to their role and responsibilities.
Fiorini International stands out in the consistently high level of service. Requests are dealt with in a prompt and competent way, meeting the customers' demands. Experience obtained over many years and the relationship of trust established with each customer is the base for the pre and post-sales assistance which is provided with each packaging product. Assessing the products' performance with the customer, studying together the possibilities to improve and advise on the best solutions for a specific need represent the Group's distinct mark.
The production process
Fiorini International undertakes all actions during production that lead to minimizing the environmental impact, both in respect of its production process and the final products that enter the market. Waste material, 100% recyclable, will be reused by paper mills for the production of recycled paper. Printing is made with water based inks to prevent the emission of pollutants or harmful substances into the atmosphere. Fiorini International is one of the founding members of COMIECO and is also registered to CONAI (National Cooperative of Packaging).
