In 2015, TAPPI will celebrate its one hundredth year. The TAPPI Centennial Celebration will be a multi-year series of outreach events and educational offerings showcasing the proud history and promising future of the global pulp, paper, packaging, and related industries. This once-in-a-lifetime event will expand public awareness, foster further connection, and provide outstanding opportunities for collaboration, growth, and investment in our future for all of those involved. 

BUCKMAN has become the first company to support the Centennial Celebration at the $100,000 level. Kathy Buckman Gibson, chairman of the board, noted that "Buckman is delighted to celebrate TAPPI's 100th anniversary by being a Centurion Sponsor. Like so many others, we have benefitted from the many ways TAPPI has been an advocate for knowledge-sharing, innovation, and growth in the paper industry. We appreciate the opportunity to take a leadership position in encouraging others within the industry to support the Centennial, share our industry's story of sustainability, and forge the future of innovation."

  • To celebrate the contributions and innovations of the global pulp, paper, and packaging industries to human culture, commerce, health, and social advancement
