The Navigator Company is a vertically integrated company whose areas of activity range from integrated forestry for the cultivation of raw materials and the production of bleached eucalyptus kraft pulp to generating electrical energy and manufacturing uncoated woodfree printing and writing paper. The use of state-of-the-art technologies sets standards in all areas, not least for quality. The paper sold under the Navigator brand name is now one of the world’s bestsellers in the premium segment. The raw material used for production is obtained from short-fibred ecalyptus globulus wood and gives the paper its particular strength, thickness and smoothness.
130 nations on five continents are supplied by The Navigator Company, establishing the business as one of the leading exporters of Portugal. Its own forestry research is still key, however: in Portugal, enormous areas of woodland are cultivated in line with FSC® and PEFC™ regulations. What’s more, the company operates one of the largest nursery of forestry plants in Europe, in which it grows around twelve million plants of various species each year for the renewal of Portugal’s woodlands.
