Port Hawkesbury Paper

The Port Hawkesbury mill site was first developed in 1962 with the start-up of a sulfite pulp mill. Within ten years, the mill added a newsprint machine and continued to manufacture newsprint and pulp for the next three decades. In 1998, Port Hawkesbury expanded again by investing $850 million on a state-of-the-art supercalender (SC) paper machine. In 2012, the mill at Port Hawkesbury was purchased by Stern Partners and reopened as Port Hawkesbury Paper. The SC machine (PM2) is capable of producing 400,000 tons of SCA++, SCA+, SCA and SCB papers for use in retail inserts, magazines, and catalogs. 

The SC machine at Port Hawkesbury Paper delivers the highest quality and most efficient paper production available. Modern equipment, in combination with effective management and a highly skilled workforce, make the mill one of the premier paper manufacturers in the world. In addition to the supercalender machine, the mill has three thermomechanical pulp (TMP) lines which account for 90% of the mill’s total fiber requirement.


Port Hawkesbury Paper is striving to deliver the highest quality and most efficient supercalendered paper production in North America.
