J.Vilaseca Collaborated with We’re all One’s project

J.Vilaseca contributed half a ton of flame retardant paper M1 (SkyFire 200 gr ) to the Tots Som Un project (We’re All One), one cube, two cubes, a thousand cubes... a sea, an ocean.

La Nau Workshop was responsible for making a group sculpture that shows that all of us form a part of a single whole and that any action that doesn’t take this vision into account will not take us in the right direction.

The theme chosen was the ocean, the sea of seas, infinite drops... the big drop. Because the sea is the latest stage where the smallness of what is huge has become evident. 

In total, there were over 1000 cubes, made by over 1500 children from over 20 schools in Barcelona. With all of them, we built a giant drop, transforming a regular element, like the cube, into a surprising organic whole, like a drop. The sculpture is hanging from the ceiling of the Maritime Museum of Barcelona; it is over 7 metres high, it weighs 250kg, and it has over 500 strings, from which each one of the cubes hangs.

“As drops are to the ocean, so people are to humanity,” with thissymbolism and weaving a collaborative piece from the work of all of the boys and girls, we also worked on collective awareness. “From the parts to the whole” and “everyone part of the whole” are key values for building a more fair future society that is sensitive to others.

The inauguration will be 8thJune, World Oceans Day.

President Artur Mas Chaired J. Vilaseca's Tercentenary Memorial

The president of the Catalonian Government, Artur Mas, chaired the company's tercentenary memorial, which was also attended by the management, the Mayor of Capellades, Igualada and Vallbona, and the local representative of the Catalan government, as well as collaborators, suppliers, clients, friends and workers of the company.

J.Vilaseca, a company specializing in high-quality papers, has celebrated this year its tercentenary of uninterrupted activity - a historical milestone in the business world. In 1714, Cal Mata Mill was founded in Capellades along with other mills; later Gaspar Vilaseca grouped them together to form the current company.

After three centuries, J. Vilaseca boasts good health. In the last four years, the company has embarked on an investment plan of 10 million Euros to develop new high-added-value products. This investment plan has rejuvenated the Listed Products, and allowed the company to achieve a global turnover of 51 million euros last year, representing an increase of 7% compared to 2012.

During the event, Carlos Torredemer, member of the management board and J. Vilaseca, commercial director, emphasized the "capacity to adapt to these changes" as one of the main factors that have permitted the company to maintain its activity over 300 years. Carlos Torredemer referred to the existing plant as a "solid family business in continuous growth, with products present in 84 countries and a turnover of more than 50 million euros". Continuing to sell high quality paper in the age of new technologies is a real challenge.

The Catalonian president stressed the industrial origins of Catalonia and offered the region of La Anoia as an example. In this regard, Artur Mas said "the industrial DNA of the country is not something new; it goes back centuries. And now the big challenge is how we adapt this to modern times and give it a future perspective." According to the President the J. Vilaseca tercentenary "sends the message that even the more mature companies and traditional sectors can adapt to modern times, update and have a good and international projection in the future." During his speech, the president of the Government also responded to the allegations made by company CEO JaumeBatllori,about energy costs, the lack of financing for enterprises and environmental requirements. With regard to the energy issue, Artur Mas stated that the country "hasn't done things well because we raised great expectations, freezing the electric rates for a long time and creating an overwhelming debt" and this according to the president "undermines competitiveness, industrial base and employment".

As far as water and waste are concerned, the head of the Catalonian Executive reaffirmed that "We have to build a country of quality, and that means treating waste properly" "Quality has a price", said the President in response to the company CEO, who reported that in Catalonia "We have very high taxation compared to Europe in environmental issues like water or waste, and this make us less competitive".

The evening ended with a toast and a lively outdoor cocktail attended by some 200 people.

J.Vilaseca, three centuries of innovation and internationalization

J. Vilaseca's story goes back 300 years to the arrival of the Vilaseca family to Capellades, then epicenter of the Spanish paper industry. What started as a family project to group together various paper mills in the municipality - the oldest named Cal Mata was founded in 1714 - has evolved over time into the current corporation, which now has two production plants in Capellades, one in Vallbona d' Anoia and the headquarters in the center of Barcelona.

The values that govern J.Vilaseca's strategy remain as they were on the first day, 300 years ago: it is a socially committed family business, dedicated to excellent customer service, continuous technological innovation and a sustainable approach to ensure maximum respect for the environment.

The company's investment culture has facilitated modernization parallel with technological developments. Thus, J.Vilaseca boasts state of the art equipment and facilities that allow an annual production capacity of 63,000 tons per year. The company is thus prepared to quickly and effectively fulfill the demand of an increasingly specialized global market that looks for a high level of added value.

In the past 50 years J.Vilaseca has transformed its business model from manufacturing security and writing papers to producing all kinds of high-end papers: specialty papers and industrial base papers, security papers, printing and writing papers, Poster papers and wine labels, embossed and pearly papers and recycled papers. Specialization in niche markets, adaptability, flexibility and continuous investment to create new families of products are some of the company's strengths.

J.Vilaseca is after all, a three hundred year old company that looks to the future committed to quality, sustainability and innovation, but without losing its original ethos.
