Sappi North America is a subsidiary of global pulp and paper group Sappi Limited, a market leader in converting wood fiber into superior products. Sappi NA’s roots can be traced back as far as 1854 to the SD Warren Company, which owned and operated the Westbrook Mill and two other US paper mills, up until its acquisition in 1994. Nearly a decade later, the Cloquet Mill was added. Today, headquartered in Boston with three mills and over 2,100 employees, the company continues the legacy of innovation and quality as a preeminent producer of printing and packaging papers, release paper and dissolving wood pulp. Widely recognized brands among GDUSA readers include McCoy, Opus, Somerset and Flo, which are used in premium magazines, catalogs, books and high-end print advertising. Sappi is also held in high esteem for its Ideas That Matter grant program that recognizes and supports designers who partner with organizations to bring great ideas to life. Over the past 18 years, Sappi has awarded $13 million in grants that have gone to assist more than 500 charities. The company has recently launched a new educational site, POP, for marketers, creatives, designers and printers looking to innovate in their categories.
