History

The origins of the company can be found in 1896 when Victor Smit founded the Victor Smit’s Glossy Paper and Cardboard Factory of Liepaja and in 1898 built the factory building. The first production of the factory was glossy paper and cardboard but later it also started photo plate manufacturing. During the company's long period of existence it has produced impregnated canvas, chrome paper and envelopes for gramophone records, drawing notebooks, letter paper and even games for children. The production range includes mail envelopes, adhesive tape for furniture manufacturing, notebooks, office books, cardboard boxes, plastic book covers, small notebooks, phone books, calendars, diaries etc.
 
Over the years the company’s name, management and the range of production and services have experienced several changes. In 1993 the status of the company was changed and JSC Liepajas Papirs was founded. By changing with the times, the company gradually increased printing production volumes and in 2005 it started the transition from the production of various white goods (notebooks, office books, drawing notebooks) to developing printing. JSC Liepajas Papirs has become a stable and development-orientated printing company with the basic line of activity being label printing and packaging imprinting. 
 
The company has been accumulating experience, striving for high quality and continuing this story of success for more than 115 years. In order to become one of the leading companies in the Baltic printing industry, the company has been able to accept challenges, timely respond to changes and has set the task of creating an innovative and sustainable business.
