Why ND Paper?

We are a leading pulp, packaging and paper company with a vision to thrive for the next century. We are investing in people and capital that are transforming our business. Each of our mills has a rich tradition of making quality products, delivering excellent customer solutions, and serving as a beacon of industry for our respective communities. 

But that’s not all. 

We are a transformational company. We are evolving our products, innovating our approach to sustainability, investing in our people, and committing to growing our company and our communities. We aren’t “satisfied” with the status quo. We have a vision to be a growing, sustainable and leading company for the next 100-years according to a set of parameters that we define—not a set of expectations that define us. We know that requires hard work, collaboration, and an unparalleled dedication to innovate and succeed.
