Who said cardboard couldn’t become a work of art? 🎨

On 22 June, at the paper pulp / cardboard manufacturers’ congress in Divonne-les-Bains, organised by the Association Française des Vendeurs de Pâtes, Christophe Lloret Linares and Francois Brunetaud had the opportunity to discover the creations of Laurent LECUELLE. Laurent uses cardboard to create reliefs and play with light in his works. 🖼️

We were captivated by the uniqueness and originality of his work. That’s why we decided to exhibit one of his works on our premises.

On Tuesday 27 June, the children from our town’s extra-curricular school got together at 5.30pm for a special activity. They sang a song about the history of the La Rochette cardboard mills and exhibited their drawings illustrating the process of cardboard manufacture through to recycling. 🎶 ✏️

We celebrated 150 years of success, innovation and partnership between our company and DS Smith, in the presence of the Mayor, elected representatives, parents and school staff. It was a moment of pride and joy shared by all!

On Saturday 17 June, we celebrated the 150th anniversary of our company 🎉✨ among our employees.

It was a memorable evening, full of conviviality, laughter and moments of sharing! It was an opportunity to celebrate our past, present and future successes, while highlighting the work of the men and women who have worked for 150 years.

We had the pleasure of sharing moments of complicity between colleagues, strengthening the bonds that unite us and creating precious memories.

Together, our teams will continue to write history in the service of cardboard! ✏️

On Saturday June 3, some fifty employees had the pleasure of attending the musical “Dracarys” presented by Compagnie Essentielle, at Montmélian’s Espace François Mitterrand, as part of our 150th anniversary celebrations.

🎶 A memorable evening of music and wonder, where we were transported into the captivating world of the Game of Thrones series!
