Who is Fabriano?
Named after the small town in Italy where it originated, Fabriano has been associated with quality paper production since the second half of the 13th century, but it was only in 1782 when entrepreneur Pietro Miliani founded Cartiere Miliani that the company established its leadership within the paper industry. The business expanded and assumed a number of guises, before adopting the title “Cartiere Miliani Fabriano” in 1947.
Today, Fabriano is part of the Fedrigoni Group of Verona, having joined on 21st March 2002.
