/ OUR PEOPLE / HISTORY

  • 1960


    Franco Ferretti, our founder, opened a small workshop, using the basement of his paternal grandfather’s house.

  • 1985

    We move to our current location in San Polo di Torrile (PR) and insert transformation lines for integrated production, packaging and automatic handling systems. From this moment we are able to produce corrugated cardboard sheets and transform them into boxes. Sandra becomes a leader in the sector at a national level.

    1985

  • 1998

    Cart-One is born, the joint venture that allows us to extend our services throughout the Italian territory.

  • 2004

    Our business consolidates and, in order to better satisfy the requests, we open a new production pole in Mezzani (PR).

    2004

  • 2006

    The Italian Cart-One alliance crosses national borders and lands abroad. We form a partnership with three other large and successful foreign companies: Klingele Papierwerke GmbH & Co.KG (Germany), VPK Packaging Group (Belgium), Hinojosa Packaging Solutions (Spain). Today we are part of BBP Partners. This cooperation enables us to meet the demands of customers throughout Europe.

  • 2014

    The “Digital Sandra” project is born. We insert in our machine park, next to the already existing flexographic printing machines, the Nasikajet line with very high technological content, specialized in digital printing.

    We are a structured organisation constantly expanding. Our team actually counts 400 employees working in the two plants: San Polo (total 72,000 sq.m. of which 30,000 are covered) and Casale di Mezzani ( total 145.000 sq.m. of which 45,000 are covered) with a total production capacity of 350 million sq.m. per year. 10% of our turnover is invested every year in innovation, technology and training.
