Jackson Mill Profile
The Boise Paper mill located in Jackson, Alabama, is an integrated pulp and paper facility with a 51+ year operating history. The mill began as a 300-ton per day bleached pulp mill employing 180 people. In 1995, a state-of-the-art recycling facility began production helping us to better supply our customers growing demand for recycled business and printing papers while reducing the amount of wastepaper going to municipal landfills.
In April of 1997, a new, world-class paper machine began production at the Jackson mill. The J3 paper machine produces uncoated paper for business and communications including offset, converting and envelope grades.
Employees at the Jackson mill are constantly working to meet the evolving opportunities and challenges of the future. In order to keep the operation on the leading edge of a very competitive market and to meet tomorrow’s customer needs, we work closely with our customers to develop new products and innovative ways to service their paper and solid wood product requirements. All of Jackson’s employees are committed to the principles of safety, quality and environmental compliance as well as efficient and cost-effective management of the mill’s processes.
Box Tops for Education™
Started by General Mills in 1996, the Box Tops for Education™ program is dedicated to helping make our nation’s schools the best they can be. Box Tops has been incredibly successful, helping schools realize their dreams despite cutbacks and other tough economic challenges. Boise Paper’s commitment to social and economic sustainability goes hand in hand with these efforts, and we’re proud that our office papers are among hundreds of products that feature Box Tops. As Box Tops are collected and submitted, participating K-8 schools earn money for supplies, recreational equipment, new technology, and much more.
Individual participating schools can earn up to $20,000 annually from the clip program alone.
Box Tops from specially marked reams of Boise Paper’s products can be redeemed for 10 cents each for your child’s school. When combined with other product’s Box Tops, you can see how a single dime can become thousands of dollars. Boise Paper is committed to providing consistent, high-quality papers that satisfy our customers’ many needs. With Box Tops, customers continue to see that same commitment to quality, but in a different and rewarding way—quality in their children’s education.
