This was the spark that gave birth to the idea of recycling, regenerating and reusing plastic materials, in particular Low Density Poly-Ethylene (LDPE).

Fede & Gianfranco Picinali

Moving among the several textile Companies of the Valley, the two founders of Gandiplast Gianfranco Picinali and Fede wondered about the final destination of all the plastic scraps dismissed from textile productions.

This was the spark that illuminated the idea of reusing plastic materials and in particular low density polyethylene (LDPE) by recycling and regenerating them.


Gandiplast SRL moves its first steps inside the historical establishment Lanificio Fratelli Maccari (1886) by producing bags for the packaging of Val Gandino textile products, a very flourishing sector that will keep growing until the end of the late 90’s.


At the beginning it wasn’t easy: the very first recycling machineries were little more than prototypes. They had been gradually improved with many adjustments and self-constructed components.

This modus operandi, together with a washing plant and thanks to continuous improvements over the years, have led to the current result: final products with an excellent quality-price ratio recognized by the main European players in the sector.
