ASE | Ciotola is a solid company and an integrated organization, family-owned, with a 50+ year experience in the field of special paper, ISO 9001: 2015 certified and compliant with FSC® standards.
The know-how that we have acquired operating directly on markets for about 30 years allows us to offer premium services and specific “tailor-made” solutions: from the technical support to the production flexibility, from the commercial consultancy to the efficiency in logistics and international deliveries.
These are the keywords of our success, which allow us, thanks to the international sales networks, to be main actors of the paper industry in Europe, Middle and Far East, Africa, and Central America.
These are the skills that the Ciotola’s family has strengthened through the years, that, together with our own production in Czech Republic and with the collaboration with primary paper industries, allow us to ensure the production and supplying of Security Paper and components to central banks, Polygraphy Institutes, State Mints, Printworks, and private security printers. We supply Special paper to the most qualified packaging producers, commercial labels printers, and to industries specialized in flexible packaging for the food sector. Furthermore, we also serve the largest paper merchants in more than 50 international markets. Special paper for luxury packaging: felt marked, embossed, colored, textured, and creative for “Graphic arts”.
CartaPlus™ is the company’s branch which works, with passion and dedication, for this last field of application, offering resistant paper – and soft to the touch – of excellent uniformity and diverse range of embossing, perfect for coating books and covers. “Velvety” paper for printing clearly/clear printing and with perfect contrasts; metallic, pearlescent colors, shiny, iridescent, and shimmering, ideals for luxury packaging. Or even felt-marked paper – which remembers the old, handcrafted one, made by the master papermakers – suitable for most of the applications in the graphic and creative field.
In addition, we afford to offer a wide range of self-adhesive materials, to satisfy every need in the main commodities sectors.
Transparency and know-how build long term business relationships.
And it all begins here.
