Anna Nevola founded A.D.P. Srl 1961 in Saronno (Varese) as a local distribution agency for newspapers and periodicals, starting with initially 12 newsstands. Capillary distribution of press products was at its beginning, the newspapers did arrive by train and were then processed in manual way.
The strong economical and structural development of the sector in the 1960s, together with the entrepreneurial spirit of the owner and her determination for continuous commercial development and technological renewal, allows the agency to increase the number of served newsstands and to extend the operational area to the entire North West of Lombardy. This goes hand in hand with a continuous innovation into transport systems and the efficiency increase in distribution and warehousing.
