We recently acquired Metro Paper Industries to continue to build on our leadership position in the industry.

Our majority shareholder, Kruger Inc., is a Canadian-based manufacturing company in a variety of other industry sectors including renewable energy, publication papers, forest products, paperboard and packaging, wines and spirits, and recycling.

We know our people are our greatest competitive advantage, and we strive to help them grow, succeed, innovate, and make our company even better each and every day.

Better yet, we are now looking for qualified candidates to join our growing team!
