Lenzing Papier


Lenzing is situated in the province of Upper Austria near the Attersee, which is one of Austria�s big lakes and therefore visited by many travellers. Therefore Lenzing has always been in the focus of governmental authorities and environmental protectionists. As a consequence, environmental performance has reached an unrivalled level. Products manufactured are recycled high whiteness high purity papers for offset and digital printing, tinted recycled papers, coated poster papers and envelope papers, both, recycled and virgin based.


Paper production has a long tradition in Lenzing. It already started in 1892. More than 100 years later, in 1984, a new paper machine replaced 2 old machines which were made idle. The old machines had a capacity of 20.000 tons of paper per year. The new machine produces today up to 85.000 tons/years, depending on basis weight. At the same time, a recycling and deinking plant was commissioned. Today, paper production is mainly based on high quality de-inked fibre from own production. Several Lenzing grades are produced from virgin pulps.
