Leipa UK will be adding White Top Testliner to its expanding portfolio, that already includes flexible packaging and the successful magazine paper division.

Light, robust, printable on mass or for small circulation and still sustainable and environmentally friendly, the packaging division mirrors the ecological benefits to customers that the LWC papers produced by Leipa already offer. The Leipa group says it has already made investments of 1,250,000,000 EUR to date exercising environmental best practice across the entire supply chain operating its own recycling division as well as investing in a biomass boiler and high specification deinking plants.

“Leipa has been extremely successful with the global marketing strategy for its products, meaning we now have the necessary foundations to invest in additional production capacities," says Peter Probst, managing director Leipa Holding.

Leipa, based in the north east of Germany, operate a fully ISO 9001/14001 and EMAS certified Mill Group. All packaging and paper products are FSC and PEFC certified.
