Appleton Papers


The Appleton Coated Paper Company was started in 1907 in Appleton, Wisconsin by Charles S. Boyd. An Appleton native, Boyd started the company with the belief that he could add value to paper by applying coatings to it and began manufacturing in a rented wooden building and boiler house with two small brush coating machines, a super calendar, a paper cutter, and a trimmer. 
Appleton acquires New England Extrusion located in Turners Falls, Massachusetts and Milton, Wisconsin, a company that manufactures single and multilayer polyethylene films for packaging applications. Appleton marks 50 years of making carbonless paper. Appleton acquires BemroseBooth, a leading British provider of secure and specialized print services.
Appleton operates three divisions; technical papers, flexible packaging, and international.
AppletonÂâ€Ã¢„¢s is the world's largest producer of carbonless paper and the only producer of the NCR PAPER brand of carbonless paper, a product Appleton helped introduce in 1954. Carbonless paper is used to make multipart business forms such as invoices, purchase orders and credit card receipts, and producers of thermal media. Appleton provides a wide range of thermal papers and related substrates for the transaction and item identification markets. Appleton thermal products are routinely used for point-of-sale receipts and coupons, entertainment and transportation tickets; lottery and gaming tickets; engineering, medical and industrial charts; tags for airline baggage and retail applications; and labels for shipping, warehousing, medical and clean room applications. Appleton's flexible packaging division leverages the companyÂâ€Ã¢„¢s expertise in coating applications, micro-encapsulation, multilayer film extrusion, printing and laminating. Appleton sells its carbonless and thermal products into approximately 60 countries. AppletonÂâ€Ã¢„¢s international division was formed in 2005 to increase the companyÂâ€Ã¢„¢s international sales through focused sales and marketing efforts and exploring partnerships, strategic alliances, and supply agreement options.
