🎅 ✨Saturday December the 9th, we attended La Rochette’s Christmas Market to celebrate our anniversary and present the creative art educational project created by pupils from La Neuve primary school.

Over 70 children participated to origami and drawing workshops on the theme of animals, using paper and cartonboard. 🐶 🐷 🐱
For the adults, we displayed part of our photo exhibition and showed our film retracing our 150-year history! 🎥

The day was marked by exchanges and smiles shared with the residents of La Rochette.
It was a sharing and creativity moment, just as we like to organise, to bring our 150th anniversary celebrations to a close. 🎉

📖 The final stretch now: the launch of the book ” A history at the service of cartonboard ” 🔜 stay connected!

💬 “A sustainable and recyclable material, cardboard was part of La Neuve primary school’s educational project for the 150th anniversary of the cardboard factory. From theory to practice, the CM2 classes were welcomed to the La Rochette Cartonboard site. […] The educational project also involved the CM1 and CE1-CE2 classes in creative arts workshops using cardboard.”

Thanks to Brigitte Mauraz, Le Dauphiné Libéré, for this article dedicated to the children’s visit on 8 December, the educational project developed in collaboration with the school, and our participation in the Christmas market! 🎅

🎅 ✨Ho Ho Ho!

The La Rochette Christmas market is fast approaching and our team is enthusiastically preparing to take part!

This morning, an origami workshop on the theme of animals for the children: frogs, cats, dogs, and many more are waiting for you! 🐱🐕

As a reminder, see you on Saturday 9 December from 10am to 6pm. Our stand will be located in front of the memorial.

📅 On the programme: an origami and drawing workshop, featuring our cardboard. A selection of images from the photo exhibition held earlier in April/May will also be on show, along with the film about our 150th anniversary and a presentation of the art project we carried out in partnership with the school.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!


As part of our strategy to reduce our CO2 emissions by 30% by 2023, we have been working with Engie Solution France to install a Turbo Blower to create the vacuum on our Machine 2.

This Turbo Blower, owned and operated by ENGIE Solutions France, offers considerable energy savings, using motor instead of 8! We will also recover the calories generated to heat the water in our boiler.

💡 🏗️ A hoisting operation was required to transport the chassis fitted with the engine, gearbox and turbine. A 450-tonne crane was used to lift 12 tonnes to a span of 60 metres: an impressive job!

🌍 Once again, at La Rochette Cartonboard, we’re innovating in the service of both cardboard and the environment.

Who says it’s easy to manufacture folding box board ?

General contractor: ENGIE Solutions France
Crane operator: Mediaco

To round off our 150th anniversary year in style, we’ll be at the La Rochette Christmas market on Saturday 9 December, from 10am to 6pm with a stand in collaboration with La Neuve primary school, in front of the commemorative monument. 🎅 🌟

📅 On the programme, discover origami animations and drawings for children, highlighting our cartonboard. A selection of images from the photo exhibition held earlier in April/May will also be on show, along with the film about our 150th anniversary and a presentation of the art project carried out in partnership with the school.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!


On Thursday 16 November, we were at the Grenoble INP-Pagora Forum to present our company, our projects and our work-study opportunities.

Future engineers had the opportunity to discover :

◾ Our company its know-how for 150 years ;
◾ The career prospects open to them, illustrated by the testimonials of two of our directors in attendance, Quentin Haezebrouck, Director of Production and Elora Mourgues, Quality, Development and Customer Relations Director, both alumni of Pagora;
◾ Discuss job opportunities with us!

Thank you to Grenoble INP Pagora for hosting and organising this event, and to all the students who came in such large numbers! 😊

💬 “The back-pressure turbine installed at the La Rochette Cartonboard mill, which required an investment of 7.5 M”, is now fully operational […].” La Papeterie, N°387, October-November 2023

Thank you to La Papeterie magazine for this article about our new turbine designed to optimise our energy management and reduce our consumption. 🌍

Watch a behind-the-scenes video of the jobsite dedicated to the installation of our new back-pressure turbine! 🎬

This turbine uses the steam generated by our biomass boiler to produce electrical energy to power our manufacturing process.

A project that required 10 months of installation, testing and €7.5 million of investment to reconcile competitiveness and environmental responsibility!

On Wednesday 25 October, we had the pleasure of welcoming and showing our company to 40 1st year engineering students and 4 accompanying from Grenoble INP-Pagora, an international school specialising in paper, printed communication and biomaterials.

The students were given a behind-the-scenes look at the manufacture of our virgin fibre-based packaging cartonboard, which is sustainable and recyclable by nature.

Our engineers, former Pagora students, supervised the visiting groups and gave a detailed presentation of our process.
