Gruppo Buffetti acquires share of Pigna
| 18 May, 2018
Gruppo Buffetti Managing director Francesco Villa has ambitious plans for the Italian company.
Italian franchise chain Gruppo Buffetti has acquired 40% of Italian paper manufacturer Pigna. Pigna was established in 1839 by Paolo Pigna, a paper merchant of Spanish origin. Cartiere Paolo Pigna S.p.A. today specialises in the production and marketing of paper and paper-based stationery.
Gruppo Buffetti told The Office Times at Big Buyer in November that the retailer has close to 800 stores and is looking to reach 1000 over the next 3 years. The investment in Pigna underlines its ambitions in the Italian market.
