THE CAMPS FAMILY BEGINS TO MAKE PAPER
MANUFACTURE OF PAPER FOR THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY
START OF TOILET PAPER MANUFACTURE
FIRST MANUFACTURE OF RECOVERED PAPER
The manufacture of thin, low grammage paper, especially smoking paper destined for the tobacco industry, is promoted in the Spanish colonies.
The Camps family began to manufacture paper with the construction of a paper mill in La Riba (Tarragona), granted to Francesc Camps i Camps. The mill manufactures hand-made deckle paper for official documents.
The Spanish borders open up to new markets and the arrival of products such as plastic bags causes a decrease in paper consumption. With the MP3 machine, Gomà-Camps begins to manufacture smooth toilet paper. In 1959, a great fire broke out that destroyed the factory. The resumption of manufacturing will take months.
In 1986, Gomà-Camps began to manufacture tissue paper from recovered paper. In 1989, the factory in Vilaverd was built to install the new industrial product converter for the professional market in Spain.
