Fox River Fiber—Technology helps retain our leadership position
Equipment and processes that set Fox River Fiber apart
Fox River Fiber continues our long-term vision and focus on customers, teamwork, and quality by investing in new equipment. Our goal is to provide quality products and service for our customers. That involves trialing new technologies, improving customer relationships, and looking for new innovative ways to recycle wastepaper into quality pulp.
Raw Materials—The Fox River Fiber facility receives deliveries from collection companies: from office wastepapers to milk cartons, siliconized paper, and other paper bound for landfills. We grade it for quality and blend into the system.
