WALLPAPER IN ALL ITS MODERNITY

Founded in 1974, UGÉPA is the last French manufacturer of wallpaper. The production site is based in Moreuil in the Somme, 150 km north of Paris.

Flexibility and Competitiveness

Our factory has a varied fleet of 9 machines, including one double width, allowing the production of many qualities of wallpapers: paper, duplex paper, flat vinyl, expanded vinyl or even "scope", expanded crepe and heavy vinyl..

The versatility of our machines combining gravure and screen printing offers us a multitude of product possibilities on paper or non-woven basis.

High Environmental Quality

UGÉPA participates in the "High Environmental Quality" approach which applies from the manufacture of the paper until its destruction. This concerns the manufacturing processes, energy and transport used in order to make our business the least impactful possible on the environment.

In 2009 UGÉPA set up a recuperative incinerator that heats and incinerates at 750°C the fumes released by the manufacturing process.

As part of the control of energy savings we use the air-oil and air-water exchangers of this incinerator to heat our machines and our premises.

FSC Label ®

Our quality approach starts with the choice of the best materials. The FSC® Wallpaper Label certifies responsible forest management and helps to combat overexploitation of wood.

UGEPA has been FSC® certified since 2008 under license number C010869.
