French paper & The Environment

We have a legacy of sustainability and are committed to continuing what we started almost 100 years ago.

In 1922 French Paper Company had the foresight to invest in hydro-powered generators. That decision has allowed French to conserve over 1,000,000 barrels of fossil fuels over nearly a century.  

French Paper Company has been manufacturing paper for over 150 years in Niles, Michigan.

French Paper has persevered for all these years by listening to customers, becoming one of the strongest, smartest, and most consistent paper brands around. They keep their eye on the bottom line by improving their product lines.

French Paper Company joined Finch Paper Holdings in 2019. Finch Paper, located in Glens Falls NY, is a vertically integrated paper manufacturer specializing in high-bright, uncoated papers for North American printing and converting markets. Together, Finch + French offer customers a superior array of fine uncoated paper products.
