Paper Excellence (PE) is a sustainable, profitable globally integrated fiber products provider that is economically, socially, and environmentally responsible. Through innovation and adaptability, PE provides cellulose based products at the lowest possible cost. We constantly strive to improve the global competitiveness of our customers, while enhancing the sustainability of our manufacturing operations and the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
We are a privately owned group of companies in the pulp and paper industry. With our headquarters located in Richmond, BC Canada, PE has close to two million tonnes of pulp production capacity through five operating mills in Canada and two mills in France.
Paper Excellence employs approximately 1800 employees in Canada. In all of our operations, Paper Excellence ensures that it maintains strong relationships with all levels of governments (municipal, provincial and federal), local communities, unions, non-government agencies and other key stakeholders.
Our commitment to a sustainable industry includes operating Nova Scotia’s largest sapling nursery in Debert, growing over six million seedlings annually. Paper Excellence Canada sources wood-based raw materials from forest lands where operators are in compliance with applicable provincial regulations and where many maintain recognized Forest Management Certification. Paper Excellence Canada takes all reasonable measures to ensure that provenance of wood-based raw material is known; the wood is legal and proper chain of custody systems are in place. Additionally, PE carries out green projects and continuous improvement initiatives within our mills as we continuously committed to search for improvements in our operations.
Paper Excellence believes that with the acquisition of new mills, the company can offer a wider variety of products which provides leverage in global market. This enables us to offer different products – such as varieties of pulp – to our customers.
