Some seventy years ago, in Valtellina, grandfather Albino and grandmother Elsa – having first been producers of grappa – decided to realise their dream: to make cardboard boxes.
Thus, “Scatolificio Ghelfi” was born.
Today, we are a consolidated presence in the corrugated cardboard packaging sector in Italy and Europe.
Our company is one comprised of people who turned corrugated board into an idea.
Ethical principles and corporate values have always led to constant improvement, with attention and respect to people and the land.
Let’s imagine the box of the future: it will be smart, being able to communicate with people and machines, share data and experiences whilst containing a potentially infinite range of information.
