Our core values and our company spirit are the things which make our performance stand out from our competitors. Our promise is to constantly challenge the limit, and tirelessly strive for victory. We will be victorious when we become – and remain – the lowest cost, highest efficiency, and most profitable company in our business – through happy, committed and dynamic people. 

Paper Excellence finalized the acquisition of Catalyst Paper Corporation on March 15, 2019. This included Catalyst’s three mills located in Crofton, Port Alberni and Powell River, its Surrey Distribution Centre and headquarters in Richmond, BC. With this acquisition, Paper Excellence’s product range expands to include printing papers, specialty and packaging paper, and increases pulp production to service customers worldwide. After the completed transaction, Paper Excellence now has more than 2,400 employees at seven mills.
