Founded in 1963, just outside Milan, Italy, Alfatherm is a global PVC film manufacturer, focused on the production and sale of rigid, semi-rigid and flexible PVC films that are used in various applications including surface decoration, graphic art, capsules and sleeves, packaging and stationery.
The constant drive for innovation has made of Alfatherm a world leader in the surface decoration industry, the company is a reference point for the world’s leading manufacturers of decorative panels, thanks to its super-matt surfaces highly resistant to scratches and stains, and to its exclusive embossed-in-register technology which allows to produce decorated surfaces hardly distinguishable from real wood.
With the upgrade of the Gallarate’s calendering lines for adhesive films, Alfatherm set the basis for a further growth at the national and international level.
Thanks to its extremely wide range of products, Alfatherm is today a ‘Made in Italy’ company with a very strong international vocation and exports about 65% of the production worldwide, a share that rises to 85% considering also the indirect export .
