OUR HISTORY – WHO IS PAPER EXCELLENCE?
Paper Excellence Canada has evolved from a single mill to a significant entity in the pulp and paper manufacturing sector, a group producing 2.5 million tonnes of product annually and employing over 2,100 people. Through innovation and adaptability, we provide cellulose based products at the lowest possible cost. We will constantly improve the global competitiveness of our customers, while enhancing the sustainability of our manufacturing operations, and the well-being of the communities in which we operate.

Paper Excellence Canada finalized the acquisition of Catalyst Paper Corporation on March 15, 2019. This included Catalyst’s three mills located in Crofton, Port Alberni and Powell River, its Surrey Distribution Centre and headquarters in Richmond, BC. This acquisition expands our reach within pulp and paper manufacturing, adding printing papers, specialty and packaging paper to Paper Excellence’s product range, and increasing pulp production to service customers worldwide.
