Celebrating Anchor Paper Company - 100 years


John Roberts has a longstanding and illustrious history with Anchor Paper Company, and we take great pride in our enduring partnership.  


Let's discuss three intriguing facts about Anchor Paper Company in the Twin Cities that may have slipped under your radar:


  1. They are a family-owned business serving the Twin Cities for 100 years. It was founded in 1923 by three brothers and is now in its fourth generation of family ownership.  Brooke Lee is the CEO and 4th generation!  The name "Anchor" was chosen to reflect the company's commitment to providing its customers with a reliable source of paper and packaging products.
  2. They are one of the Midwest's largest independent paper and packaging distributors. They offer many products, including paper, packaging materials, and janitorial supplies.
  3. Anchor Paper Company is committed to sustainability. They offer a variety of recycled and environmentally friendly products, and they work with their customers, like John Roberts, to reduce our environmental impact.


Fun bonus fact:
