Paper

Only the Best, Thinking Always of You
We combine the best raw materials with the latest technology to produce a vast range of papers, to enable your work to shine.


Raw Materials and Technology

By wedding top quality raw materials to technology, our aim is to brighten your day, whatever printing equipment you use.

When you choose one of the The Navigator Company group's products, you're opting for much more than just paper. You're choosing the achievements of a whole team, focussed on offering you the highest standards, consistently, to make sure you get the best results, even in the toughest conditions.

 


Our Paper

The The Navigator Company group's paper is made from renewable natural resources and makes a vital contribution to developing and protecting woodlands. And as well as providing you with a permanent record, our paper is biodegradable, recycling rates are high and most of the energy used is from renewable resources.

Our paper also owes its quality to the fibre from Eucalyptus globulus, recognized around the world as the ideal wood for manufacturing premium office supplies.

Quality fibre, combined with carefully selected raw and subsidiary materials, processed at mills famous around the world for their technological and production capabilities, makes the The Navigator Company group's paper a world leader.

 


Own Brands

The The Navigator Company group is focused on its own brands. This means its sales strategy is to offer a portfolio of brands with distinctive value propositions, reaching out to different consumer segments.

Pride of place goes to Navigator, the world's best selling brand of premium office paper.

Consumers can also choose between ranges and lightweight options capable of meeting their needs and surpassing their expectations. The excellence of our raw materials and technology means we can manufacture lightweight papers at 75 g/m2 and even 70 g/m2, whilst still matching or outdoing the quality of rival 80 g/m2 products, offering savings as well as environmental and performance advantages.

In a market where a distinctive product is extraordinarily difficult to achieve, the The Navigator Company group stands out from the crowd. We have achieved this thanks to innovation, premium products, high service standards and selling nearly two thirds of our output under our own brands.

About us

Company details

The Navigator Company is the new face of the former Portucel Soporcel group, after its rebranding in February 2016.


The Navigator Company is Portugal’s third leading exporter, and the exporter generating the highest level of national value added. The Group accounts for approximately 1% of Portugal's GDP, around 3% of the country's total exports of goods.


Having consolidated its position as the leading European manufacturer, and the sixth largest in the world, of uncoated woodfree (UWF) printing and writing paper, The Navigator Company is also Europe's top producer of BEKP (Bleached Eucalyptus Kraft Pulp), and the fifth largest in the world.


The Navigator Company sells its products to 130 countries over five continents, with a special focus on Europe and the US, giving it the broadest export base of any Portuguese company.


As a vertically integrated forestry group with its own forestry research institute, it leads the world in the genetic improvement of the Eucalyptus globulus. It manages vast tracts of forest in Portugal certified under the FSC® and PEFC™ systems (FSC license C010852 and PEFC license 13-23-001), and boasts annual production capacity for 1.6 million tons of paper, 1.4 million tons of pulp (of which 1.1 million is integrated into paper) and power generation of 2.5 TWh, adding up to annual turnover of approximately 1.6 billion euros.


As part of its strategy for expansion, the Group recently acquired a tissue paper mill and is implementing a major vertically integrated forestry project in Mozambique, as well as building a new pellets factory in the US.
