Company History

In the first half of 2014 Vajda Papír Kft. made several important investments. In spring 2014 the tissue manufacturing capacity was increased by the installation of a new production line. In June nearly in the presence of 100 guests – including national and local government representatives, diplomats, partners, clients and suppliers as well as the press – the new major investment project of HUF 1.8 billion to increase the production capacity of Vajda Papír Kft. was unveiled, which is to open up new vistas for the company.

2013 Vajda Papír Polska, the first subsidiary of the company abroad, was established in January 2013. The venture managed by local experts is to coordinate and take advantage of the market opportunities present in Poland.

Vajda Papír Scandinavia, a subsidiary to increase the production capacity of the company now going international, was set up in May. The company founded in Norway employs 100 people and has a production and processing capacity of 25 thousand tonnes, to which the management bought a new production line and contracts as well.
2012 Vajda Papír Kft. is to meet the steadily increasing consumer demand by purchasing and installing a new napkin machine.
2011 The year the first office abroad was opened. From now on a sales representative will help increase sales in Romania.
There has been major restructuring at the company in Hungary as well; the team now includes more sales representatives, and the company has set up an independent management board, which means that five executives have joined the top management of the company.
2010 New technology has been introduced, bringing innovation to the making of rolled products (paper towel and toilet paper).
Plant development has also continued: energy-saving and environmentally friendly production and a centrally controlled heating, cooling and lighting system have developed together.
2008 Time has come for plant development. The production units which were scattered across the plant have been collected to one place, and not only that: but as a greenfield investment. In addition to the real estate investment the technology has been developed once more. Innovation involved mainly the buildings of the plant; the foundations for the top notch energy recycling production, the connection of the heating to the electric supply of the machines and the environment-sensitive power control system found in smart houses were laid then.
The year MSZ ISO 9001:2008 was introduced.
2004 In addition to the modernization of existing equipment new, high-capacity machines have been added. Capacity multiplied, while the assortment expanded to include a full range of household paper products.
During development the main focus was on process-centeredness and catering to the needs of customers to the highest degree of excellence; therefore we introduced the MSZ ISO 14001:2004 management system.
2001 The year of the first major investment. The founders have given up all their other activities in order to concentrate fully on the development of the company. They purchased a high-capacity production line suitable for the production of paper towel and toilet paper, and the product range started expanding rapidly. As the production increased so did the number of staff.
The same year – as soon as the first opportunity arose – the company entered the international market. The first orders came from Slovakia and Poland.
1999 Mr. Attila Vajda and Mrs. Szilvia Vajda Csata, still having full-time jobs, bought their first toilet paper making machine, and set it up garage they rented for the purpose. They entered the market with one single product, but as it was well received and in order to meet increasing demands they started investing in new machinery.
