The Twenties
Specialization in industrial filtration

Diversifying Applications

The Seventies
Innovation
Using new synthetic fibers invented in the US, Testori was one of the first in Europe to start up production of needle felt for filtration. The first needle felt line was installed in 1971, followed, in 1973, by the pioneering use of thermo-welding bag seaming techniques.
The Eighties and Nineties
Growth and internationalization
