Always willing to meet the requirements of its customers and the market trends, Cascades La Rochette is pleased to inform you that all cartonboard made on Machine N° 3 as from the 03/06/2013 will have higher stiffness characteristics.

Reconstruction and optimisation of the press section at the exit of the wet part of the board machine including the installation of a shoe press, reconstruction of a part of the pre and post dryer and refining optimisation enables us to offer a significant increase of stiffness on both the machine direction (MD) and the cross direction (CD) of our GC2 cartonboards Rochcoat and Rochfreeze in 230, 250, 275 and 300 g/m².

Cascades La Rochette is located in South East of France and produces 160.000t of FBB.
