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.

Our Present
