Marcal Paper hosted an event in late January to commemorate the official restart of papermaking operations in Elmwood Park, New Jersey and thank those across New Jersey who aided in its recovery, one year after a 10-alarm fire destroyed the company’s iconic mill and shut down operations.  CEO Rob Baron and dozens of company associates were joined by dozens of workers, Governor Phil Murphy, Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr., first responders, the United Steelworkers, state legislators, local officials and many community partners

The event heralded the official return of New Jersey’s one and only recycled tissue manufacturer:

“Today we officially announced the restart of regular papermaking operations in Elmwood Park, one year to the day after a ten-alarm fire destroyed the iconic Marcal Paper mill.  The prospect of such an announcement -- of restarting a viable paper manufacturing business at the site -- seemed impossible to any of us who were there one year ago.   We are thrilled to welcome back dozens of good people into full-time jobs, and work to restore customer confidence.  We will start the long journey of creating a great company from the ground up, once again.  Thanks to the remarkable support we’ve received and the determination of our team, the Marcal story will have another chapter,” said Baron
