Paper Mill Closures Increase Demand for BPM’s Recycled Papers

As the trend of paper mill closures continue, BPM remains a strong player in paper making industry.

(Business Wire BPM Inc., a long-standing manufacturer in the papermaking industry, has started to feel the effect of yet another paper mill closure in the USA. Over the last several years, manufacturing facility closures, global competitive pressures, and corporate consolidations continue, affecting both profitability and sustainability of mills.

Through the industry’s unstable years, BPM continues to grow and expand its product offering to printers and converters world wide. With the increased demand for USA made, recycled paper products, the company is also fulfilling the large need for tablet and notepad converters, manufacturers and printers.

“BPM has seen a jump in the use of 100% PCW recycled content papers over the use of virgin and 30% PCW as businesses gravitate towards environmentally friendly practices,” said Mitchell Mekaelian, Vice President Sales. “With the impact of a recent paper mill closure in upper Michigan, the demand will continue grow,” Mekaelian continued. “Our tablet and notepad papers continue to increase in orders and production is growing as customers look to make products and businesses greener.”

While BPM is busy manufacturing a wide-variety of products on two machines; one designed for the food industry and the second solely to manufacture its exclusive, Envirographic™ 100, the mill specializes in niche markets requiring custom orders and unique products.

In addition to a range of products, the company also manufactures Envirographic 100 COLORS, the only 100% post consumer recycled pastel papers in canary, green, blue, pink, goldenrod and cream.

Excellent run-ability and print capabilities make the grade superior in the industry. The in-house color matching system offers its clients a customizable product unique to the job requirements. The complete line of Envirographic 100 is made with 100% PCW recycled pulp, FSC® C019220 and SFI® certified.

BPM Inc., an environmentally-focused paper mill, manufactures uncoated 100% PCW recycled fine papers for the printing industry. The company also manufactures paper-based wraps for food, confectionery, interleave, and flexible packaging industries. Converting capabilities include 8-color printing, dry and wet wax coating, converting and rewinding.
