COMPANY HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY
Mazzucchelli, one family, 6 generations sharing the same mission and values: excellence in innovation and quality with a focus on tradition and craftsmanship. The cultural roots of Mazzucchelli stand in the company determination to always be a pioneer, in the vocation to research, technical and aesthetical innovation and in the experience and ability to collaborate with some of the best companies in the world.
The tiny factory, established in 1849, manufacturing combs and buttons made from animal horn, bone and tortoiseshell, became an international company with a highly sophisticated know-how, enabling Mazzucchelli 1849 to excel in the production of semi finished plastic materials with highly technical and aesthetical qualities.
Over three centuries entrepreneurial spirit, intuition, and vision have enabled Mazzucchelli 1849 to take a global view of the countless new challenges of the market and to converse with the fashion world which demands a particular sensibility to aesthetical and innovative features. In addition to Celluloid and Cellulose Acetate sheets, Mazzucchelli 1849 production has expanded over the time to include PVC films for credit cards and pharmaceutical use, compounds of styrene granules for automotive and household appliances, as well as the production of finished articles such as skis, ophthalmic lenses and costume jewelry objects. Currently Mazzucchelli 1849 is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing and distribution of Cellulose Acetate, a plastic material, traditionally used for the production of spectacles and sunglass frames.
