Our history

Our success comes through the success of our Customers. 

Welcome to our Family FAP!


" The best advertisement for FAP has always been the high-quality innovative machinery, by means of which our customers can build the success of their own business. "

Luigi Poli, founder


Luigi Poli was a real pioneer in Italy when, during the 80′s, he specialized in design and production of machines and plants for the extrusion and transformation of foamed plastics. 

Poli founded FAP in 1987 in the heart of the productive Brianza area and in a few years, thanks to his technical skills and entrepreneurial spirit, he established the company making it one of the main European players in the production of: foam extrusion lines for high-quality expanded films, fully automatic winders for foam & bubble wrap, lamination lines and cutting/welding units.

FAP distinguishes itselves from competitors because the plants only have proprietary technology, which is the result of constant dialogue with the production departments of customers. Each plant meets the requirements of Industry 4.0 to ensure the customer maximum efficiency, reduced energy consumption, accurate control of temperatures, pressures, raw materials and gas consumption.

The key to FAP’s success is based on pillars such as: quality, flexibility, competitiveness, innovation, attention to Customer’s needs. Over 37 years of history, FAP has sold complete lines to leading producers of non cross-linked polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) foam, always guaranteeing the service and reliability of its technology.

In 2020 Luigi’s sons Fabrizio and Francesco Poli  have taken up the reins of FAP.  Under their leadership the company carries on providing Customers with technological solutions that meet their needs and can help to achieve their goals. 


Birth of new FAP VELA brand

Resumption of designing and machine construction with full technical service for Vela’s customers. FAP has always been inspired by the versatile solutions of the Spanish company Vela which represents the surname of its founder and inventor. Due to this fact the new FAP VELA brand was born: the union of their passions for high-performance and intuitive solutions and international experience. This fusion will allow to approach the market with the extension of the new range of solutions, which are extremely versatile machines for the packaging sector (foam film and bubble film): cutting machines, welding machines and folders.


Italian Foam Centre

And finally FAP's long and rich international experience is at the complete disposal of the entire FOAM WORLD. Thanks to R&D department called Italian Foam Centre with  foam extruder in our internal laboratory together with our customers, raw material producers and research centers, we create, test and approve new solutions and products capable of anticipating the ever-changing foam market demand or even changing the competitive scenario.


New Production Site of FAP

The project involves expanding the production area, installation of complete foam extrusion line to making the industrial test, expansion of Italian Foam Centre - research and development laboratory - looking toward innovations and fruitful collaborations with clients. Construction of the new production site is currently underway.


We believe that it is possible to produce expanded films through increasingly high-performance technologies that protect the environment in which we live. Our goal is the constant improvement of what we design and build.
