Alcolea Paper Mill

Alcolea is an integrated paper mill based in Alcolea de Cinca in Huesca, Aragon, in north-eastern Spain.

The mill produces high performance fluting, testliner, and dual-use papers from recycled materials, and the on-site corrugator and converting machines mean that DS Smiths Paper and Packaging teams operate out of the same location, creating efficiencies that benefit our customers.
