  • engages with suppliers and contractors for the thorough monitoring of the quality characteristics of the raw materials, materials and services purchased;

  • maintains an optimal climate within the company's organisation:
    • by constantly maintaining and improving conditions in the working environment, in terms of compliance with occupational health and safety requirements;
    • by providing workers with all material and training resources;
  • once the primary and supporting processes necessary for the company's operations have been identified, systematically monitors the effectiveness of the processes of primary importance for the achievement of performance targets set with the aid of suitable indicators.

  • In addition to these indicators, the Management will set its improvement targets on the basis of:
  • the stakeholders' requirements;
  • the outcomes of the analysis of the Integrated Management System's performance conducted during the review;
  • changes in the regulatory framework;
  • the update plans or projects it decides to implement;

  • assess its adequacy, and any opportunities for changes, also considering developments in the socioeconomic and regulatory framework, to enable the company to maintain a leading position on the international scene through the constant innovation and development of new products;
  • monitor this Policy to guarantee its continual maintenance and improvement.

  • The Management undertakes to make available adequate resources for the pursuance of the principles of this Corporate Policy, and to allow its consultation by Staff and contractors.

    This Policy is subject to periodic review by the Management, during its System Reviews.
    Specific objectives in line with the Management's approach as set out in these points are defined over time in order to improve the company's performance.

    Our history

    More than 50 years of tradition
    serving our customers

    Year of Foundation

    CDC was founded in the 60s by families Fenotti and Comini with the intent to diversify what was the main activity IN THE STEEL INDUSTRY.
    From the beginning the mill was managed and developed with dedication by Mr Enzo Fenotti who still leads the company as President


    Waste Paper

    A key step was the decision in the 70s to adapt the production to selected waste paper as raw material, a choice that will be successful for the years to follow


    First Line of extrusion

    The first Line of extrusion with 2 tandem extruders was installed in 1973. This gave the chance to produce sandwich complex, special complex with paper and alu foil and 4 layers compounds.


    Second Line of extrusion

    The installation of the second line specific for the coupling of heavier papers and intended for the production of Sandwich compounds, was decided in 1990


    Third line cm 270

    Finally in 2000 the third line with a final trim of cm 270 in order to supply the market of reels wrapping, corrugated industry , solidboard and insulation


    Big Numbers

    Nowadays CDC is a reality employing 150 people with 3 production sites located between the towns of Montichiari and Calcinato ,
    producing 60,000 tons of brown sack-kraft paper and 45,000 tons (approximately 500 million m2) of paper complex


    Paper production and Converting

    it was decided to build a new plant nearby the mill in Montichiari where a first warehouse of 8.000 m2 will be created, and where the paper production and converting activities can be developed in the years to come


    The new warehouse of Cartiera del Chiese is now working/operating

    The new CDC plant located in Montichiari is now a reality. Initially used as a finished product and raw material warehouse, the paper and converting activity could be developed in the years to come.
