+Our Company Heritage
- THE OLDEST ITALIAN TEXTILE FAMILY
The Piana family began work in the textile business in 1582 in Biella, Italy. The family business evolved into dyeing fiber in 1950 for the traditional apparel business. In 1995, Tintoria Piana opened in Cartersville, GA to dye fiber for the American textile market again serving traditional textiles markets for apparel and some home furnishings. As U.S. manufacturing of apparel began to move offshore we realized that in order to survive as a U.S. operation we had to find other applications for our fiber treatment technology. We began to work in the nonwovens industry to offer performance and value added treatment to the fiber.
The Cartersville location represents one of fourteen facilities operated by the Piana family on three continents. more
+Research & Development
- INSPIRATION MEETS INNOVATION
Our research and development department is constantly exploring other possibilities for fiber treatments. We prefer to be challenged to overcome a current shortcoming in a customer's product so that we can work together with our customers to develop new approaches to old problems. We want to bring value and performance to fiber in order to give our customers a market advantage.
Let us know what areas we can develop together.
