Operations

Fast, flexible and specialty-driven

Gorham is synonymous with specialty.  The configuration of the mill enables the operation to meet technical requirements for demanding, niche applications by providing unmatched manufacturing flexibility.  Our broad portfolio of custom-engineered papers highlights our passion for product development and operational expertise.

The company participates in three distinct markets:  Towel, Tissue and Specialty Papers.  This diversification combined with a focus on enhancing our cost competitiveness has resulted in a viable, growing business willing to challenge industry paradigms.

In a joint venture with Old Town Fuel and Fiber, we recently invested $35 million into the installation of a state-of-the art tissue machine, giving us a unique market position as an independent supplier.
