According to historical records, recycled paper has been manufactured at the current Papeleira site since 1930.

It`s capacity at the time allowed for a production of around 7 tons per day, with two round shaped machines, this capacity was only improved in 1973.

However, the need to innovate, to look for new products and markets, the company felt at an early stage. There was evidence of a strong tendency towards the reduction of weight of the recycled paper for the cardboard industry, which led to a loss of Papeleira’ s competitiveness, the market start asking for ticknesses that was not possible to make with the existing paper machine.

Looking to boost its competitiveness, Papeleira set out on a path of innovation and began producing paper for cardboard tubes and angles, with different specifications and higher weights, adding substantial value.

The company’s evolution and its industrial potential led to its acquisition, in 2013, by an industrial Global Group. From that date onwards, the company has seen constant investments in its production process, allowing it to offer a quality product, regularly.

In 2015, the company prepared a 15M€ investment plan also supported by Portugal2020 UE Funds, and today, after this strong investment and complete change of machine and facilities, Papeleira produce 220ton/day, an unthinkable achievement 5 years ago.
