Timelines: History 2010 – 2019<br /> Forging Ahead

After emerging from the Great Recession, which turned out to be one of the most challenging periods in the history of the paper industry, Kruger valiantly forged ahead and continued to invest in its operations. In 2014, the Company became a pioneer in cellulosic biomaterials, building the world’s first cellulose filament plant. A year later, Kruger announced its ambitious plan to convert its largest newsprint operation for the manufacture of 100%-recycled lightweight linerboard used to make eco-friendly packaging products. In 2018, Kruger Energy unveiled a project to build its fourth wind farm in Canada, and Kruger Products announced massive investments in Sherbrooke, Québec, to build Canada’s largest and most advanced TAD tissue plant.
