Porcari, in the Italian province of Lucca. The
company was founded in 1966 and has more
than 5,5000 employees. With annual production capacity topping one million metric tons,
it holds second place in Europe and sixth place
worldwide in the tissue sector, and is a leading
producer of tissue for hygienic and domestic
use; its best-known brand is Regina.
