Persistant technological innovation, focusing on the culture of craftsmanship, a great depth of product range, maximum customization, an environmental and social responsibility and transparency are strong points, combined with the high quality of the raw materials: the wood that ALPI utilizes is rigorously of controlled origin, and completely processed in-house.
An industrial company in constant evolution, a multinational with Italian roots, a forceful projection into the future, and an unrivaled technological reference point for the wood materials sector: ALPI was the first company in the world to industrialize the production process of composite wood. From a workshop of fine cabinet making the company rapidly evolved into an industrial leader in the production of decorative surfaces. Its story is a vibrant tale of a manufacturing tradition focused on excellence and of the Alpi family, still at the helm of the firm today, through three generations, starting with founder Pietro Alpi since 1919.
The progress from a carpentry workshop to an industrial firm specializing in the production of prefabricated panels and wooden surfaces for the still nascent furniture sector already began in the 1950s, with the arrival in the company of Valerio Alpi, son of the founder, and the launching of widespread distribution across the national territory. In 1961 the product "ALPIlignum" was introduced, the first composite veneer and still the brand's most representative item. A true revolution made possible by extraordinary technological research and an extensive background in cabinet making, which led to rapid growth on international markets.
