Included in the purchase of “GC Consumer” are Zaragoza-based Gomà-Camps Consumer and Castres-based Gomà-Camps France, increasing Navigator current production capacity to 165,000tpy.

A spokesperson for Gomà-Camps confirmed to TWM that the company’s professional business sector continues for Gomà-Camps S.A.U (La Riba).

Navigator said the acquisition is “part of an ambitious plan for diversification and development”, strengthening its position as the second largest Iberian producer of tissue.

It added it expected to see the group contribute a new growth cycle in the tissue business segment, and that the factories would boost new business in Spain and France.

In the tissue business, Navigator expects consolidated sales of tissue paper in excess of €300m.
