The company Annapapi Srl was born in Livorno in 1977 thanks to the idea of Rino Nannipieri and his wife Anna Papi, contributing to a period of great industrial ferment with an extraordinary entrepreneurial spirit. The duo initially worked by cutting and repacking the washed and sterilized rags they could buy from industrial laundries. Already in the cleaning sector, with great intuition, they understood growing demand for more technical and performing materials, so at the beginning of the 80s, they decided to import from the United States the first container of non-woven fabric.

The material attracted interest firstly in Tuscany and later all around Italy, thanks to the innovation brought to the market and the difficulty of finding non-woven fabric by companies. rom that moment, the company was born, named the same as the wife Anna, who became, over time, a reference point for professional cleaning thanks to the wide range of non-woven fabrics. Over time, we have gained extensive experience and expertise, not missing any technological development that has allowed us to improve the quality of the non-woven fabric, extending its application to diversified market sectors with high-precision solutions.
Today we are one of the reference companies in the national territory, with continuous growth and expansion also at an international level, happily contributing to the Made in Italy Manufacturing 4.0, which aims to the excellence of technical development with environmental sustainability values.
Our work grounds on an artisan approach, on quality care and is detail focused, while operating with openness to innovation, from a technological point of view with collaborations with the highest experts, either with a flexible approach to meet the multifaceted needs of each customer.
