About us

Corporate development

Klingele Embalajes Canarias, S.A., formerly Papalera de Canarais, was founded in 1953 by investors from the Canary Islands. It was initially set up as paper mill using waste paper. In the mid 1960s, we began producing corrugated cardboard. Our first customers came from the agricultural sector, which needed robust packaging to export bananas and tomatoes. Later, the fishing industry and local production facilities also became customers. Today, we produce corrugated sheets and corrugated packaging in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Our connection to the German group of companies, Klingele Papierwerke, was established in the 1960s. Our collaboration with Klingele Papierwerke, together with their know-how, facilitated our site’s entry into the world of corrugated cardboard. The company is included in the technical innovations of the Klingele Group, which has an effect on our production, our employees and our customer service.

In 1965, the Klingele Group became the main shareholder of Klingele Embalajes, formerly Papelera de Canarias, S.A. Since 2016, the company has been operating as Klingele Embalajes Canarias, S.A. in order to further benefit from the synergies of the Klingele Group.

Klingele Embalajes is located in the vicinity of the port, which is extremely favourable in terms of raw materials logistics and the shipping of finished products.

Our production

Continuous changes in our customer markets require ongoing investment in machinery. This is the only way to meet the needs of our customers. Our state-of-the-art machines enable us to produce packaging with specific qualities, tailored to the needs of our customer.

We produce corrugated cardboard in wave profiles B, C and BC. We have printers with 4 colour flexographic printing. We have rotary and flatbed die-cutters, which we principally use to supply the local agricultural sector with packaging for bananas and tomatoes.
At the same time, we also supply to industry. Our case-maker is primarily geared towards these industrial products. We also produce corrugated cardboard sheets (which we sell to our own in-house and third-party processors), corrugated roll and “big box” packaging in large sizes. (1 or 2 packs per euro-pallet).
