About Us

Wisconsin has led the nation in papermaking for more than 50 years

The Wisconsin paper industry employs more than 30,000 workers at 35 mills providing nearly $2.5 billion in payroll to the state's economy.  The paper industry produces $14.3 billion of paper in a wide variety of grades, including printing and writing, tissue, specialty, coated, and packaging.  The paper industry pays an estimated $238 million in state and local taxes.  Taken together, the paper industry is a major contributor to the economic vitality of the state of Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Paper Council advocates for and represents its members in public affairs and public relations matters, serves as a center for the exchange of ideas, and disseminates news and information concerning the industry; this includes proposed legislation and job opportunities.
