The company was formed from three smaller paper mills and became one of the largest producers of book-paper in America during the 1920’s and 1930’s. The company was later acquired in 1967 by Smith Corona Marchant (SCM) Corporation but would continue to employ over 1,300 people in Kalamazoo. The company would change hands many more times until, in 1988, the company became defunct.
