Recent Acquisitions

On June 1, 2018, we acquired the Pine Bluff Arkansas paper mill from Mondi Group. Additionally, we added four paper mills assets from the Burrows Paper Corporation on December 14, 2016 (three mills in New York and one in Mississippi). Both transactions support our strategic evolution to grow in value-added packaging and technical specialty papers.

The capability and output of all of the operations are marketed under the Twin Rivers name, with a shared vision of advancing of leading the specialty paper market through customer focus and innovation.

Complimentary Market Focus with Enhanced Capability

The Pine Bluff mill specializes in unbleached, Kraft paper (40- 78 lb.) used in a variety of bag and sack applications. Aside from expanding our packaging product offering in attractive and growing markets, we share an overlapping customer base that allows us to provide service and logistic benefits.

The newly acquired manufacturing and technical capability in New York and Mississippi greatly enhance our capability to make highly specialized technical papers for niche applications. 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 add value and differentiation as a supplier.

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.
