Okay Paper—Innovation in “Made in Valtellina” Tissues


Located in an area far from the traditional Italian industrial and commercial hubs, is one of the most important Italian manufacturers of tablecloths, placemats, napkins, paper and wadding tissues: OKAY Paper. The company was established in 1969 by the current CEO, Gilberto Corti, now assisted by his sons Stefano (Production Manager), Paolo (Commercial Manager) and Michele (Plant Manager). “Since we started up”, says Gilberto Corti determinedly, “the company has found a niche in the market for our strong spirit of innovation and quality.

OKAY Paper has been a DuPont customer for more than 25 years, and in 2015, they installed a Cyrel® FAST thermal technology system. Michele Corti: “this choice has enabled us to improve printing quality considerably, succeeding in improving the ink transfer to the substrate, which also enables the reproduction of very fine screens, and improves the nuances. Printing on tissue is very delicate: the substrate can be altered if the ink transfer is not properly controlled. This is why a quality plate is synonymous with guaranteeing the finished product”.
