The Navigator Company, the new corporate brand inheriting the legacy of the Portucel Soporcel Group, is Europe’s leading manufacturer of uncoated woodfree printing and writing paper, and the world’s sixth largest. The company is also Europe’s top producer of bleached eucalyptus pulp which means that they pursue a specific strategy to ensure sustainable management of harvestable forests through in-house research and development. This includes the operation of the largest nursery of forestry plants in Europe, with an annual production capacity of 12 million certified plants of various species intended for the renewal of Portugal’s woodlands.
Today the Navigator brand is the world’s best-selling product in the premium office paper market – and according to a study has recently become number 1 in the European market. Five continents and 130 countries appreciate its excellent properties which it owes to the “raw material” of eucalyptus globulus. The short-fibred eucalyptus wood produces paper which brings a glossy shine to the office and the printing industry – with excellent softness, sturdiness, body, stability and wet strength.
