Our Recent Acquisition
On December 14, 2016, we acquired the four paper mills assets from the Burrows Paper Corporation (three in New York and one in Mississippi). The transaction supports our strategic evolution to grow in the lightweight packaging and technical specialty papers.
The capability and output of the operations will be marketed under the Twin Rivers name, with a shared vision to advance the lightweight specialty paper market through customer focus and innovation.
Complimentary Market Focus with Enhanced Capability
The newly acquired manufacturing and technical capability expand our offering. We add Machine Glazed (MG) papers along with wet creping technology to our portfolio of lightweight specialty papers. The combination of new, tissue-based applications, an expanded basis weight range (7.5 lb. to 73 lb.), broader product offering and scalable operating platform enhances our ability to produce highly technical papers for niche applications and targeted markets.
Culture of Innovation
Embedded in the culture is deep technical knowledge and focus on innovation that will continue to adapt to changing market needs. The cross-pollination of the two organization’s manufacturing and development resources will result in a robust development queue supported by a strong service platform.
Take a look at our newly acquired operations and the corresponding product offering and markets served.
About Burrows Paper Corporation
Founded in 1919, Burrows entered the paper market with a single paper mill purchased by its founder, Andrew Burrows in Little Falls, NY. Over the years, additional paper mills were acquired in Lyons Falls, New York and Pickens, Mississippi as well as a second mill in Little Falls. The operations become known for producing highly differentiated products engineered for targeted end-use applications.
In 1986, Burrows expanded to include lightweight specialty packaging with three U.S. based plants (Ohio, Iowa, and Nevada) and two international locations (Netherlands and China). The packaging operations and Burrows Paper Company name were sold in a separate transaction on December 14, 2016.
