CARTOTECNICA MONTEBELLO S.P.A.Founded in 1973 in Sarego, Vicenza, Italy,
Cartotecnica Montebello is the world leader in the manufacture of board books.
The company revolutionized how board books are made by designing and developing its own automatic board book binding lines, all of them unique, and every one internationally patented.
By the continuous pioneering of new methodologies and technologies in automated board book binding, Cartotecnica Montebello continues to be the avant-garde manufacturer in this niche manufacturing sector. While the rest production lines the company developed were semi-automatic, we now use fully automatic lines that can mass-produce finished board books of the highest quality with a myriad of different component features at high-speeds.
The last five years have seen significant technical advancements in both the mechanics and the electronics of the lines rendering them evermore precise and evermore competitive.
In addition to its board book binding lines Cartotecnica Montebello has also designed and developed its own patented binding lines for partworks and their accompanying binders and binding lines for the production of collectible encyclopedia cards (predominantly for use in conjunction with magazines).
Cartotecnica Montebello’s state-of-the art automation and its continued commitment to technological progress led it to earn recognition from the European Union in 1997 as being one of the top 500 European companies for innovation and economic growth.
Year on year Cartotecnica Montebello continues to invest in sophisticating its production lines to enhance their efficiency, enabling it to offer the optimum service to its customer base.
