  • Spare Parts

    Spare Parts

    Fast and Reliable

    A piece of equipment will break down at some point during its lifecycle and when that happens it can effectively shutdown a mill until it is repaired. If this happens and replacement components are not readily available, it could take days, weeks, or even months to start up a machine again. Don't make the mistake of not being ready for the inevitable. Paperchine offers replacement parts for all OEM equipment and in many cases can improve upon existing design to give you the best parts possible.

  • About us

    Our Past

    Paperchine began as a vision shared by several former Beloit Corporation executives who were determined to establish a U.S. based company composed of top professionals dedicated to the paper industry. They formed the company in March, 2000, and have successfully grown the operation to its present state today. Twice Paperchine has been named one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. by Entrepreneur magazine.

    In 2011, Paperchine took another step forward through its merger with AstenJohnson. Paperchine and JohnsonFoils, a division of AstenJohnson, joined together to become what Paperchine is today. Paperchine has facilities and representatives strategically positioned around the world. Some of these locations can be found in the United States, Canada, Gemany, and Thailand.
