Acquisition price: approx. €85 million
The Group’s 2016 turnover is expected to be about €1 billion, with 70% generated on international markets

The Fedrigoni Group – a leading international operator in the production and sale of high value added paper, banknote paper, security products and self-adhesive items – is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of 100% of the share capital of Arjo Wiggins Ltda, a Brazilian subsidiary of Arjo Wiggins and South America’s sole producer of paper for banknotes and security documents, and special graphic papers.
A price of approximately €85 million was paid for the acquisition, of which €5 million will be payable in 2016 upon achievement of specific conditions and results.
Arjo Wiggins Ltda posted turnover of approximately €70 million in 2014.
In the first few months of 2015 the company confirmed a good economic performance, exceeding 2014 results.

The acquisition of Arjo Wiggins Ltda further strengthens the Group’s presence in Brazil (where it has been on the market since 2009 with Arconvert Brasil, which produces and markets self-adhesive labels) and makes it South America’s top player in banknote paper, security products, special graphic papers, and self-adhesive items.
The acquisition also achieves important synergies in all of the Fedrigoni Group’s core operations and further strengthens the Group’s position as world leader in the security products and special graphic papers sectors-products with high value added and high profitability that have achieved excellent growth rates, especially in South America.

“This transaction is in line with the international growth and development strategy that the Group has implemented in recent years, and allows us to forecast 2016 turnover of over €1 billion, with 70% generated on foreign markets compared to the current 64%,” says CEO
Claudio Alfonsi, who continues, “Thanks to this acquisition, the Fedrigoni Group is now South America’s largest player in the high value added paper sector. We are extremely pleased, because not only
we have strengthened our position in Brazil, a strongly expanding market, we now have direct access to South America’s high valued added markets with special pressure-sensitive labels. Both recent acquisitions, the Brazilian one and GPA, our recent acquisition in the United States, have a good profitability - which will be further enhanced by our ability – and accomplish the strategic plan we
presented to the financial community in 2014."

GOLD für Fedrigoni!  (Firmennews)

Parallel zur Eröffnung der Konsumgütermesse „Ambiente“ wurden am 07. Februar die Besten der Besten mit dem German Design Award 2014 in Frankfurt geehrt. Ein Preis, für den man sich nicht bewerben kann, für den man „nominiert“ wird. Ausgezeichnet wurden hochkarätige Produkte und Projekte aus dem Produkt- und Kommunikationsdesign, Designpersönlichkeiten und Nachwuchsdesigner, die alle auf ihre Art wegweisend in der deutschen und internationalen Designlandschaft sind. Nach der Ansprache von Detlef Braun (Geschäftsführer der Messe Frankfurt) moderierten Julia Bauer (N24) und Andrej Kupetz (Rat für Formgebung) gemeinsam die Preisverleihung, präsentierten die Siegerarbeiten und übergaben die Urkunden und Awards an die Gewinner. Der „Personality Award 2014“ ging an den Unternehmer und „Küchenrevolutionär“ Gerd Bulthaup. Als bester Newcomer wurde Christian Zanzotti geehrt, der auf Produkt-, Möbel- und Fahrzeugdesign spezialisiert ist. In der Kategorie "Print Media" aus dem Bereich Kommunikationsdesign erhielt Fedrigoni für das Musterbuch „Materica“ Gold. Nach dem Red Dot Award im Jahr 2012 ist dies nun die zweite Auszeichnung für Materica. Die Jury: "Das Musterbuch des italienischen Papierherstellers Fedrigoni gefiel der Jury so gut, dass sie hierfür Gold vergab. Entgegen üblicher solcher Kundenbücher finden sich darin nicht einfach nur Papiermuster nach Stärke und Farbe sortiert. Die Arbeit, die hier vorliegt, verdient schon eher die Bezeichnung Buchobjekt. Wesentliches Merkmal ist das kraterähnliche Loch im Buchblock, das die Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht und neugierig macht. Mit jedem Blatt - und es ist immer eine andere Qualität von Papier, eine andere Farbe, die man umblättert und ein anderes Motiv - arbeitet man sich tiefer hinein in die Materie. Ein unglaublich aufwändiges und im Detail liebevoll gemachtes Buch, das ein sinnliches Vergnügen bereitet. Eine wunderbare Idee und ein Statement, aus dem unzweifelhaft die Leidenschaft für Papier spricht." Jurymitglieder waren u. a. Dr. Annemarie Jaeggi (Direktorin Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung Berlin), Olaf Stein (Managing Partner Factor Design AG) und Prof. Erik Spiekermann (Edenspiekermann AG). Der German Design Award ist ein internationaler Premiumpreis, der hochkarätige Design-Produkte und -Projekte auszeichnet. Initiator ist der Rat für Formgebung, der seit 60 Jahren das deutsche Designgeschehen repräsentiert.

FEDRIGONI Deutschland wird 25! Jubiläumsfeier im Berliner Reichstag  (Firmennews)

Seit einem viertel Jahrhundert (1987 - 2012) ist der italienische Feinpapierhersteller FEDRIGONI im deutschen Markt vertreten. Anfangs als Zenith Feinpapier Handelsgesellschaft, seit 1999 als Fedrigoni Deutschland GmbH. Mittlerweile mit fünf Showrooms und einer neuen Hauptniederlassung mit Zentrallager bei München.
Zum 25-jährigen Jubiläum lud Fedrigoni deutschlandweit eine Auswahl an Kunden am 26. September 2012 in den Berliner Reichstag ein. 130 Gäste folgten der Einladung und genossen im Käfer-Dachgartenrestaurant direkt neben der Glaskuppel, begleitet von einem atemberaubenden Blick über die Stadt, ein 5-Gänge Gala-Dinner mit exquisiten Gaumenfreuden und erlesenen Weinen. Marcus Lange (Prokurist der Fedrigoni Deutschland GmbH) begrüßte seine Gäste in seiner Ansprache und präsentierte dabei unter anderem die neue Fedrigoni Imagebroschüre. Für musikalische Begleitung sorgte die Jazz-Band “Jazzvisite”; und einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterließ ein Pyrografie-Künstler, der mit Wunderkerzen Portraits brannte. Anschließend wurde in der Sky.bar im 14. Stock des Andel´s Hotels zusammen mit allen Kunden bis in die frühen Morgenstunden weiter gefeiert.
2013 folgt das 125-jährige Jubiläum der Fedrigoni Spa (Italien).

Vor erst fünf Jahren wurde der Standort Berlin aufgebaut, wo kurz darauf der erste deutsche Showroom eröffnete. Seit dem hat sich Fedrigoni erfolgreich in der Berliner Druckindustrie etabliert und zu einem kompetenten Ansprechpartner für Grafiker und Designer entwickelt. Interessierte Kunden hatten am Tag nach der Jubiläumsfeier die Möglichkeit, den Showroom am Hackeschen Markt selbst zu besichtigen.
Besonders prägend waren die letzten Jahre unter Leitung von Marcus Lange:
Ende 2007 wurde die Kooperation mit dem Papiergroßhändler Carl Berberich gekündigt und der Direktvertrieb auf die Gebiete Hamburg, Berlin und Baden-Württemberg erweitert. Ein Jahr später folgte die Eröffnung des ersten deutschen Showrooms in Berlin. 2010 wurde das 6-Millionen-Neubauprojekt mit Zentrallager, Büro und Showroom im Süden Münchens fertig gestellt. Im gleichen Jahr zog die Niederlassung Hilden in die Gehry Bauten im Medienhafen Düsseldorf und das Lager wurde in die zwei Lagerstandorte Dortmund und Köln aufgeteilt. 2011 folgte die Markterweiterung auf die Länder Ungarn, Slowakei und Tschechien, und in Wien wurde ein Büro mit Showroom eröffnet. Seit Juni 2012 bietet Fedrigoni auch seinen Hamburger Kunden einen kreativen Showroom zur Beratung und Inspiration. Weitere Standorte sind für Franken und Baden-Württemberg in Planung.

The cover of ARTLAB 39 on Fedrigoni Sirio Black certified HP!   (Company news)

Digital printing on a black background is always a challenging business. But it can be done using the HP Indigo technology and a special colour, solid white, which opens the door to using supports in intense, dark colours, even black. An HP Indigo 5500 machine was used to print this cover, doing several runs of the white before the four-colour print run. The paper used is a 290 g Fedrigoni Sirio Black, a card coloured in the pulp that exudes an intense, deep black: it is the first paper in the world to receive certification directly from the hands of HP Indigo.

The prestigious international design magazine Wallpaper* is presenting a wide variety of Fedrigoni papers in its special August 2011 Handmade issue: a work of haute couture where graphic design has combined with printing and paper to generate a real masterpiece.

Stucco swatchbook: new edition   (Company news)

Announcing the new edition of the Stucco swatchbook: a range of special papers that are so easy to print with and manage to surprise even the most demanding customers… time and again.

Relaunch der Fedrigoni-Kollektion BOOK&BOX  (Firmennews)

Das Musterbuch Book & Box des italienischen Feinpapierherstellers Fedrigoni wurde überarbeitet: die bereits bestehenden Imitlin-Prägungen Tela und Fiandra wurden um die Prägung AIDA erweitert, die der Musterung eines Gewebes ähnelt. Neu hinzugekommen ist die Qualität „Imitlin Flat“: ein weißes, glattes Naturpapier ohne Prägung, das die selben Vorteile wie die farbigen Papiere der Kollektion besitzt. Daneben wurden der Farbpalette acht neue Farben (insgesamt 21 Farben) hinzugefügt. Die robusten und durchgefärbten Papiere sind optimal für Buchbindearbeiten und Kaschierungen geeignet: Imitlin besteht aus einem Kraftfaser-Zellstoff und bietet damit eine bessere Festigkeit. Zusätzlich ist die Oberfläche mit einer Fingerschutzlackierung veredelt. Die Papiere zeichnen sich durch eine hohe Abrieb- und Reißfestigkeit, Falzstabilität und Lichtbeständigkeit aus und sind FSC-zertifiziert. (FEDRIGONI Deutschland GmbH)

Fedrigoni launches the new Constellation visual book  (Company news)

Skiers skimming down immaculate pistes of Jade Onda, schools of goldfish flitting among the ripples of Jade Fluid, cumulus-like clouds of Jade Riccio and fleeces of woolly sheep on Snow Mosaico. These are only a handful of the phantasmagorical interpretations made using the designs old and new of the Constellation range: they play with the eye on page after page of this new visual book, which comes packed to the brim with practical ideas.
This surprising embossed paper comes in three ranges, all strictly FSC certified and multilayer: Snow is a natural paper with a high degree of whiteness, Jade is brilliant and pearly, with an absolutely unmistakeable chiaroscuro effect, while Ivory is embossed on both sides and has a warmer, more refined tone.
The new embossings that have added unprecedented surfaces to the Constellation Snow and Jade ranges are Aida and Fluid: the first is a multi-directional technological canvas, the latter a fluctuating, dreamy sign, whose pearliness adds lights, shadows and movement that make it a truly unusual finish.
