circular economy

Founded in 1989 from an idea of ​​Luigi Isola, Isola Spa is today the reference point for the Italian market in the marketing of waste paper.

Once the leadership in the sector was consolidated, Isola Spa extended its business and know-how to the trade of plastic materials and to supply, through leasing, machinery for the collection and selection of waste paper. During the development of the business Isola spa obtained certifications and export licenses for the marketing of waste paper, guaranteeing solidity and financial independence.

In 30 years, Isola Spa has developed a vast network of clients all over the world, determining the company’s success on the market. With a turnover of over 40 million Euro Isola Spa was the first Italian company to sell waste paper in China in 2004.

Thanks to the management through the Chinese subsidiary Isola Engineering, founded in 2006, with registered office in the Shanghai free trade area and operational headquarters in the Yangpu – Shanghai district, Isola Spa has created a real sales agency, and offers services and consultancy to companies oriented to assess the opportunities of the Chinese market.
