Our story began back in 1969 thanks to the initiative of Giancarlo Cavanna who founded the G. CAVANNA company, which later became LAMINATI CAVANNA S.p.A.
For over 50 years we have been laminating plastic film for food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, technical and industrial packaging. Today, thanks to our constant commitment and search for innovative ways of working, we have grown to become one of the market’s most important companies in this field, both nationally and internationally.
How was this achieved? By following a bustling market which is continuously evolving from a technological standpoint and by always looking for new materials and machinery for production.
Our headquarters, which account for more than 15,500 square meters, and of which about 8,000 square meters are covered, are located in the industrial area of Calendasco (Piacenza). Our three buildings are divided as follows: the first one is used for solvent processing, the second is air-conditioned and is used for solvent-less processing, while the third is used as a warehouse with the ability to store up to 4,000 pallets, easily traceable through a sophisticated computer system.
We also have a regenerative solvent-based thermal purification plant because we have always paid careful attention to environmental sustainability.

“PROGETTO VITA” ASSOCIATION
The “Progetto Vita” Association in Piacenza was the first European project in the area concerning “Early Defibrillator,” designed to prevent sudden death due to cardiac arrest. It was conceived by Prof. Alessandro Capucci and Dr. Daniela Aschieri and was developed thanks to the contribution of doctors, nurses and volunteers of the association.
We were one of the first private companies in the area to buy a defibrillator and we formed and trained a team of volunteers among our employees.
