Lecta has announced the temporary shutdown of line 8 production at its Condat mill, in the French town of Le Lardin Saint Lazare, from the end of April. The decision will be reevaluated in the following months depending on market developments. The decrease in coated paper demand over the last several years resulted in overcapacity in our industry. The worsening of this trend observed in the last months is the main reason for the temporary line 8 shutdown at the Condat mill. The Condat brand product range and service levels during this period are guaranteed due to efficiency improvements and streamlining on Condat line 4 as well as through the contribution of the Group's other coated paper mills.

Lecta presents an extensive new range of Termax products for the demanding, dynamic thermal paper segment, the result of deep technical know-how and years of experience in manufacturing specialty papers.
Over the last years, Lecta completed a strategic investment plan prioritizing its heat-sensitive papers: a new base paper machine, a complete modernization of the coating preparation kitchen and a new coating line, installed in the Leitza mill (Spain) in 2018. Today, our new thermal facilities are equipped with two state-of-the art coating lines completely devoted to thermal paper, fully automated packaging lines and winding machines that provide a high-quality finish.
