This portfolio of products helps to make Navigator the world’s best-selling premium office paper. It accounts for 50 percent of sales in the European premium sector.

Innovation, sustainability & performance

The brand is produced by The Navigator Company, one of Europe’s leading paper manufacturers. Throughout its thirty-year history, the company has operated with a firm commitment to three core values:
