The Company

Since 1911 Papelera del Oria has manufactured paper in Zizurkil (Basque country, Spain) using the best available technical resources.  We produce in the region of 60,000 tons of uncoated offset paper in a substance range of 50gsm-250gsm.  This is for printing, writing and general offset papers.  Our paper machine, which was completely re-built between 1998 and 2000, has a width of 2.7 metres and runs at a maximum speed of 750 m/min.  One winder, one sheeter and the packaging line complete our main equipment.  We also use a Combined Cycle Cogeneration plant of 9.25MW with two gas turbines and a steam turbine to fulfil our energy requirements.

More than 200 regular customers include the main publishers and printers, a good Spanish home market and exports into Europe (France, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Benelux) and North Africa.  Our strategy is focused on adapting to the needs of our customers, offering the finest quality and excellent service whilst also respecting the environment.
