The history of the company lies very far back in the past.
The Alleva’s family began working on the paper industry in 1941 in Naples and in the mid-50s, after working so far only as merchants, collaborating among others with the newspaper Il Mattino, they implanted a paper industry with avantgarde papermaking machinery. Within a few years they became a reference point for the whole south-central Italy.

In 1963 the family gradually left the paper converting, to run until 1978 a paper mill that produced brown and yellow “camoscino” paper. In 1979, in collaboration with Raimondo and his sons Domenico and Antonio, and lately Salvatore, they went back to the business of paper industry. Within a few years Alcart became one of the most important companies in Italy for the production of laminated paper for food. The final breakthrough was in 1990 when the production and the administration were moved to Isola del Liri (Fr). After the moving, Alleva Brothers managed the former “Cartiera Trito” and then, in 1995, they acquired the former “Cartiera Viscogliosi”, where the company still operates.

The production site was completely renovated refurbishing the building and introducing technological innovations. The synergy resulting from the combination of activities related to both paper mill and converting, a cutting-edge technology and production system and above all the fifty-year experience and the knowledge of the paper market allowed Alcart to establish itself as a worldwide industry leader. In fact, in recent years, particularly since the early years of the third millennium, Alcart’s activity it’s been characterized by a strong international component with a particular reference to the nearby Mediterranean. In 2005 the company got trough to a strong expansion of its production sites. The expansion was put to use in order to improve the company logistics, innovate the product and process lines and also to respond more effectively and efficiently to the growing needs of the market. In this way the company reached new segments of the industry also registering a rising customer loyalty.


In the summer of 2010 Raipaper srl, which represents the fourth generation of the family working in the paper industry, composed by Ida Chiara, Raimondo, Federico and Luigi, takes over the productive, commercial and property management of Alcart srl.
Raipaper srl is an attempt by Alleva’s family to implement the experience in the paper industry of Isola Del Liri.
It is currently a leader in food paper production, processing, converting and marketing.
RaiPaper is more precisely the only company in the industry, at European level, which is structured into two distingeshed but often related sectors, that will be examined in the appropriate sections:

  • The paper mill: assigned to the recycling and the production of paper;

  • Converting plant : assigned to the duplex, the printing and the processing of the reels produced in the paper mill.

Currently Raipaper SRL produces paper for various purposes and uses, from the food industry (food-use cards such as paired, politenate, straw, bags…) to the industrial one (maps for corrugators, steel companies…)

The company has a long familiar tradition and the current ownership has created a flexible reality, paying attention to technological developments and mantaining a strong focus on individual customer needs.
