Company Profile
On the evening of Friday, February 11, 1887, five businessmen met in Richmond, Virginia to consider forming a paper company. Albemarle Paper Manufacturing Company was born that night, and the men soon built a factory on a parcel of land located on Tredegar Street between the James River and Kanawha Canal. There, they manufactured Kraft paper and blotting paper, and enjoyed success during the early decades of the 1900s.
