Key facts and figures 
ICT France: Excellence in Loire

ICT France has had a presence in the French market for many years. An integrated greenfield facility was inaugurated in 2011 in Pannes-Villemandeur, near Montargis in the Loire region, about 120 km south of Paris.

Besides supporting ICT’s presence in Europe, the new production site strengthens the Group's ability to cater for customers located all over France with the highest levels of efficiency and low environmental impacts.

The paper mill’s continuous machine and converting lines are all constructed according to the best available technology for a state-of-the-art integrated facility, assuring streamlined production of the highest quality products. Total production is 70,000 tonnes per year. 

ICT Group remains committed to sustainability and environmental protection

After rebuilding at the paper mills in Italy and at ICT Poland, the new vacuum system has now been put into operation at ICT France. The vacuum generating system for PM31 consists of two blowers and saves a considerable amount of electricity, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and a drastically lower amount of water used in the vacuum system. Turbo blower technology is currently one of the best solutions to reduce the energy impact, in line with the requirements of the BREF (Best Available Techniques Reference Document) for the paper industry. We are proud of achieving this result and of the amazing teamwork behind this project.

Foxy launches two innovations on the French market

Foxy Cotton is a 5-ply toilet paper, enriched with cotton fibres, giving it a unique touch of softness. With its large sheets featuring central embossing, you only need to use one sheet at a time. Foxy Tornado is the first 3-ply jumbo roll ever on the French market. Strong and absorbent, it is perfect for multiple purposes: on windows, in the garden, as well as in the kitchen, because it is food-grade tested (like all Foxy kitchen rolls).
