[Cohoes, NY] – The largest manufacturer of premium printing, identity and imaging papers in the country has changed its name. Effective today, Mohawk Paper Mills is now Mohawk Fine Papers Inc.
The recent acquisition of International Paper’s Fine Papers business has transformed Mohawk’s offering to a truly diverse range of fine paper products, with the company’s legendary commitment to quality as the unifying factor.
“The name change is meaningful for several reasons. First, it marks an important milestone in our company history,” says Thomas D. O’Connor, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The new name also reflects our broader product portfolio while emphasizing Mohawk’s longstanding commitment to quality. “
“The most important thing to note is what has not changed,” O’Connor adds. “The name ‘Mohawk’ continues to underline our commitment to creating and producing a full range of fine papers…papers specified by designers, printers and paper specifiers around the globe for prestigious annual reports, corporate identity systems, high-end brochures, packaging and everyday communication for businesses of all sizes and types. ‘Mohawk Fine Papers’ sets the stage for the company we are becoming,” he says.
A new, evolutionary identity system, being designed by Pentagram, is slated to launch this fall.
Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. is the largest manufacturer of premium printing, writing and imaging papers in the country.
