Papresa is the undisputed newsprint leader in Iberia and Western France. The Company has a proud history in paper making with over 100 years of manufacturing high quality newsprint to its demanding customers.
The mill, which has two deinking plants and three paper machines with an annual newsprint production capacity of 375,000 tons, is strategically located in Errenteria (Basque Country, Spain), which leads to premium access to clients in the Iberian Peninsula, France and to key international ports.
The Company has a strong portfolio of blue-chip media clients in Iberia, France and overseas, generating sales in over 30 countries in 4 continents, with more than 120 customers.
Due to the significant drop in global demand for newsprint throughout the past years, initiated by increasing digitalization of information and publishing industries, Quantum envisages an industrial diversification of the company. Starting with the change in ownership, Papresa is now executing an ambitious conversion program towards fast-growing products for packaging, which are increasingly used by the e-commerce industry to reduce plastic and improve the environmental sustainability of packaging.
