Double A, a pulp and paper manufacturing firm headquartered in Thailand, has resumed production of the Evolve line of 100 percent recovered paper at its paper mill in Alizay, France. Double A purchased the paper mill from the French government in January 2013.

The Evolve line of paper was launched by Alizay in 1996 and generated interest from consumers in the United Kingdom and France. However, production of the line was halted in 2011 when the Alizay mill was closed.

One year after the mill was purchased by Double A the mill has resumed production of Evolve paper.

“The Alizay mill acquisition in January 2013 has enabled us to reinforce Double A’s standing in Europe while answering our European clients’ expectations. Today, we are proud to celebrate the first anniversary of a mill, which combines the machines’ modernity to great performances, thanks to skilled and committed workers. This success confirms our development strategy in France and Europe, which are key markets for Double A’s growth,” says Thirawit Leetavorn, Double A’s senior executive vice president.

The company says the mill has a total paper production capacity of 300,000 tons per year
