Newell Paper Company

Originally founded as the Jackson Paper Company was founded in 1921 by Mr. Harvey Newell. Newell's
employees started off selling industrial paper products like paper towels, toilet paper and cups, later adding fine
printing paper and janitorial supplies and equipment to the list of products. Today, the company sells more than
7,000 different products to its customers under three primary product lines: fine printing papers, industrial grade
papers and janitorial supplies and equipment. In 1946, the company expanded its operation by opening the
Newell Paper Company in Meridian.

Today the company, which is owned entirely by its employees as a privately held corporation, covers a market area which includes over 8,000 customers in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama and has 185 employees
Current location is: 1212 Grand Avenue, Meridian 39301
