About SP Fiber Technologies
From day one, our focus at SP Fiber Technologies has been on building a company that is committed to providing sustainable and innovative newsprint and packaging solutions to our customers.
Our story is rooted deep in the history of modern newsprint production. SP Materials, our first name, was established in 1971 by Media General, Cox Enterprises and Knight Ridder. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, we continued expansion with the addition of new paper machines and the acquisition of our mill in Newberg, OR. In 1999, our company name changed to SP Newsprint Co. and in 2000, our newsprint machines were recognized as the fastest in the world. Twelve years later, SP Fiber Technologies was established and major capital investments were made in 2013 to launch a new era of growth in sustainable, lightweight packaging.
As one of only a few newsprint and packaging companies processing 100% post-consumer recycled materials, we are deeply committed to minimizing our impact on the environment. We strive to become the greenest mill in North America, and we will continue to make significant investments to our operations in order to do so.
