The Sirpi Wallcoverings factory was established in 1975 at a production site in the suburbs of Milan, Peschiera Borromeo. This town now has head offices for many major international companies who enjoy the proximity to Milan and the nearby international airport.
The factory was developed to supply the demand for wallcoverings in the Italian market and was the idea of Oreste Jannelli who had a very successful wallcoverings distribution business in Milan. In 1978 Mr Jannelli’s son, Mauro Jannelli, joined the business and remains the Managing Director of a business which in 2011 was considered to be in the top 50 most successful manufacturing companies in the whole of Italy.
Specializing in traditional Italian in-register textured vinyl product the company grew its business in export markets through working with distributors and with technical joint-ventures with other manufacturers, and today exports to over 50 countries.
In 2008 work started on the construction of a new factory on a different location close to Milan, and in 2012 this new factory has the most modern and efficient technical machinery available.
Sirpi is able to produce wallcoverings using several new technologies from traditional gravure and surface printing, flocks and metallic inks and digital printing on to a textured base. The investment of several millions of Euros in this new factory will keep Sirpi at the top of the Italian Wallcovering Manufacturers’ table and will benefit the business for a generation.
