About us

Passion. Process. Technology.

The LEIPA Group is an independent family company with over 170 years of passion for environmentally friendly processes and technologies.

This – and our own high standards – are the best prerequisites for outstanding products for all kinds of paper and packaging needs on a 100% recycling basis. From magazine paper, testliner, cardboard and special paper to paper-based packaging solutions.

With more than 1,700 employees, LEIPA Group achieves a business volume of 850 million euros.

As the European market leader, we convert more than 1.5 million tons of waste paper back into high-quality paper and packaging solutions every year.

From waste paper purchasing and production to sales, customer service and logistics: as a globally operating group of companies, we always have the complete value-added chain under control. And you as our customer always have a direct and competent contact at LEIPA.

“We bring economy and ecology into harmony.”

At the same time, we are available on-site for our customers all over the world not only with our own distribution subsidiaries but also with competent distribution partners we have trusted for many years.
