Antonio & Fratelli Zappa

Antonio & Fratelli Zappa (Italy).

Founded in 1860, “Antonio & fratelli Zappa” is based in Ponte Lambro, near Como, a city famous worldwide for its flourishing silk industry, and it has been traditionally managed by the Zappa and Borin families through six generations.

From the production of silk spinning machines and iron casting in two different factories, in the 1940s the company evolved to coating machinery, assembling the first coating head ever produced in Italy.

In addition to the production of coating machines, the company also committed to the field of textile lamination, from the first adhesives and flame laminating machinery, to the thermo-adhesive powder, up to the revolutionary technology of hot-melt laminating machinery in the early 2000.
