Mohawk Celebrates Grand Opening of Northeast Envelope Converting Center
Mohawk, North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes, and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, celebrated the opening of a new world-class envelope converting facility in the South Hadley today. Mohawk has invested approximately $2 million to retrofit the 112,342 square foot envelope converting facility. The operation will produce 500 million envelopes annually, creating many new jobs in the region. To date, Mohawk has hired 16 new employees, and plans to hire up to 40 employees over the next year. Mohawk is North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers and envelopes, which are preferred for commercial and digital printing, photo specialties and high-end direct mail. Mohawk fine papers and envelopes include the signature brands Mohawk Superfine® and Strathmore®, as well as proprietary treatments Inxwell® and i-Tone®. As a leader in environmentally and socially responsible business practices, Mohawk was the first U.S. manufacturer of commercial printing papers to match 100% of its electricity with wind power renewable energy credits and the first U.S. premium paper mill to shift toward carbon neutral production. Many products within Mohawk’s portfolio of recycled papers are certified by Green Seal and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
