Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., one of the oldest paper mill in the United States, announced that it has broadened its West Coast distribution.

The company, which provides a diverse range of paper products including technical and specialty papers, premium printing and packaging papers for leading brands, has established a new stocking location in Kent, Washington, to more fully serve its growing customer base on the U.S. West Coast.

According to Monadnock, being in King County, the heart of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area, means faster fulfillment and reduced customer shipping costs for its “in-demand and sustainably-advantaged fine paper and packaging portfolio.” Shipping times will range from one to two days with the added benefit of convenient customer pick-up, said the company.

Historically, companies and organizations on the West Coast have been early adopters of sustainable products and processes,” said Lisa Taylor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Monadnock Paper Mills. “As the paper industry’s oldest and best known sustainability leader, it was a natural next step to make this expansion and investment to better service our customers across the region.

Indeed, Monadnock offers a range of papers with high sustainability credentials: crafted from 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled materials, FSC Certified (FSC C018866), manufactured carbon-neutral (VERs) and made with 100% renewable Green-e certified wind-powered electricity (RECs) under a third-party certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.

Recently launched Monadnock Envi PC 100 Coated Performance Board, for instance, is a cool white coated premium board for brands unwilling to compromise between performance and sustainability. It is crafted in the United States and is FSC Certified, with 100 percent post-consumer waste recycled fiber. Its end-use packaging applications include cosmetics, fragrances, nutraceuticals/CBD, wine and spirits, fashion accessories, health and wellness, jewelry and watches, and tech and entertainment.

The new distribution center is stocking and offering for immediate delivery some of Monadnock’s newest and most popular sustainable brand lines in a broad range of weights and sizes: Astrolite PC 100 Uncoated Smooth, HP Indigo Certified Astrolite PC 100 Digital +, Astrolite PC 100 Velvet 2CS, Envi PC 100 Performance Board and, Hemp Envi Performance Board.
