In the first quarter of 2012, a new metallizer will be started up that will increase production capacity by approximately 70%.
Torraspapel, part of the Lecta Group, has announced the installation of a new high-vacuum metallizer in its Leitza mill (Spain), scheduled to be operational at the beginning of 2012.
The goal is to meet the needs of an expanding market, particularly the labels and packaging sector, and to be a segment leader in the metallization of paper.
This new investment strengthens Torraspapel’s and the Lecta Group’s commitment to diversifying its product range, increasing the production of high added value products, and extending its leadership to different market segments.
Torraspapel, a manufacturer of pulp, coated and uncoated paper, base paper and specialty papers such as metallized, carbonless, thermal, cast-coated and self-adhesive papers, has a total production capacity of more than 1.1 million tons. The company has invested heavily in its seven Spanish manufacturing sites, all of which have been equipped to specialize in specific product lines, with a high level of integration and technological know-how, resulting in better product knowledge, higher quality and excellent environmental positioning.
