Who we are

Lamigraf is a family company founded in 1976 with the aim of designing, developing and manufacturing décors oriented to surfaces for furniture and flooring industries. 41 years later, our people are still in the engine at the heart of the Lamigraf machine. Nature, our source of inspiration, has shown us that we can overcome day-to-day setbacks with patience, tenacity, devotion and creativity. This is the attitude required to be successful.

But without a doubt, our most important value, the one of which we are proudest, is our team spirit. The human factor is the key to understand, interpret and meet the demands of our customers to guarantee an excellent product. We offer these values to our customers, who are our main source of motivation, and drive us to carry on improving every day. At present, with factories in several countries and customers spread across all corners of the world, what started out as a seed of hope has blossomed thanks to hard work and effort, to become what Lamigraf is today. 

Our values

People

Lamigraf started its journey in 1976, thanks to the hard work of the people who believed in the project. 40 years later, people are still the driving force behind Lamigraf: maintaining the same spirit, continuously learning and facing all challenges to adapt to each moment.
Lamigraf’s biggest asset is not our collection of designs, machines or our relationship with our customers; it is the people who make up the company. We strongly believe that every member of our team can make a difference, whatever their job.

Winning attitude

Nature, our source of inspiration, has shown us that we can overcome day-to-day setbacks with patience, tenacity, devotion and creativity. This is the attitude required to be successful.

Commitment is an essential attitude.

We are dedicated and committed people who make a difference in each and every one of our daily activities. Only we are responsible for meeting the objectives that we set ourselves.

As a team, we do not simply combine our efforts; we multiply them

We are much more than the sum of our parts. Sharing a common goal makes us stronger and turns independent people into a team that is working in the same direction. When we are together, nothing is impossible.

How we work

Scanning the original

Our experts in trends are responsible for choosing the originals which are to become the basis of our decorative paper. These originals can come from different parts of the world, following regional and global trends, and they are subsequently treated and handled by carpenters and other materials specialists, so that they are up to market standards.

Digital processing

Our design team is responsible for converting the originals into digital files that are suitable for use in the production process. During this process, our designers follow the latest global and regional trends observed, incorporating the knowledge acquired from working with architects, interior designers, journalists and other trendsetters.

Electroplating

During the cylinder plating and engraving phase, the digital images are engraved on copper cylinders and these are the basis of the industrial gravure printing process.

Ink production

Lamigraf manufactures all of the ink it uses in its production centres in its factory in L'Ametlla del Vallès (Barcelona). This allows us to ensure consistent product quality, regardless of where the printing process takes place.

Paper printing

Lamigraf has cutting-edge gravure printing machines with up to 5 printing units for the production of decorative paper. Our experienced printing professionals are responsible for ensuring consistent product quality that meets our customers’ requirements.

Environment

Certified quality

Lamigraf has implemented controls at each of the different stages of its production process, as well as in its products, to ensure the optimal quality of its services.

In 2010, Lamigraf was awarded the International Chain of Custody Certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), which guarantees that the raw materials used in its products come from sustainably managed forests.

Energy efficiency

Since 2010, Lamigraf has been implementing an energy saving plan to ensure that we protect the environment when carrying out our activities and to save on energy costs.

The dedication of the work groups, composed of internal staff from various departments in the company, has been instrumental in achieving results, with an annual reduction of 13% in electricity consumption.

Sustainability

To print our decorative paper, we use organic water-based inks that are environmentally friendly and free of heavy metals, highly lightfast and heat resistant.

Lamigraf had one of the first factories in the sector to drive these changes in its ink production process, following the highest standards of quality and respect for the environment.
