A future-oriented paper mill
From one century to the next, Papeteries de Vizille has always adapted to the needs of the times. The 21st century will be marked by an emphasis on high-end luxury products, digital printing ... and papers of the future.
Established at the end of the 16th century, Papeteries de Vizille, located in the Grenoble region, in Isere has traditionally operated in two markets products : paper and paper bags.
Paper flow line
Papeteries de Vizille produces nearly 30,000 tons of paper a year, catering to the needs of a demanding and prestigious client base.
The company's small size and flexible production capabilities have enabled the Group to pursue a market niche strategy aimed at providing a diversified range of value-added products: featherweight paper, bank checks, security paper and watermarked paper. These products have made Papeteries de Vizille a partner to renowned publishing firms and large French banks, pursuing its development goals in countries around the world, where its expertise and dedication to quality are widely recognized.
With the predominance of the Internet and electronic technologies (iPad, electronic book readers, etc.), Vizille has launched a product diversification program. It has identified new outlets: luxury/high-end products, digital printing and ... the papers of the future! In fact, since 2010, Hermès and Yves Saint-Laurent have printed parts of their catalogs on paper especially formulated by Papeteries de Vizille. Several manufacturers of digital machines have certified these papers. Looking ahead, Les Papeteries are working with laboratories of the the CEA (Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique) in the nano-technology and nanomaterial fields to develop smart papers that are capable of meeting the demands of the future.
Production of paper bags
Another important sector for the company is the production of paper bags. It produces 75 million large-capacity paper bags annually for the agri-business, chemical and construction industries.
This division manufactures bags with sealed valves as well as smaller bags.
The subsidiary of the Vicat Group earned the PEFC1 label in 2009, guaranteeing the sustainable management of forests through the use of raw materials coming from controlled resources.
