BENNINGTON, N.H. (News release) -- Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States, announced that it has broadened its west coast distribution. It has established a new stocking location in Kent, Washington to more fully serve its growing customer base on the U.S. West Coast.
Being in King County, the heart of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area, means faster fulfillment and reduced customer shipping costs for Monadnock's in-demand and sustainably-advantaged fine paper and packaging portfolio. Shipping times will range from one to two days with the added benefit of convenient customer pick-up.
"Historically, companies and organizations on the West Coast have been early adopters of sustainable products and processes," said Lisa Taylor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Monadnock Paper Mills. "As the paper industry's oldest and best known sustainability leader, it was a natural next step to make this expansion and investment to better service our customers across the region."
