Quantum Capital Partners acquires Papresa, plans partial conversion to containerboard


Spanish newsprint producer Papresa is being acquired by investment company Quantum Capital Partners.

A Quantum spokesperson confirmed to EUWID that the purchase agreement with the previous owner US investment fund KKR was signed in the penultimate week of July. Quantum Capital Partners intends to partially convert Papresa’s output capacity, which is currently focused on newsprint, to recycled corrugated case material. To this end, part of the existing production capacities are to be rebuild for the new grades, the spokesman explained.
