Atlas Tissue can trace its roots as a pioneering paper manufacturer of 100% recycled, environmentally preferable tissue products to the early 1980’s well before the sustainability trends became so significant. Our dedication to recycling dates back to our very beginning when our founder, Remberto Bastanzuri, took a part-time job as a machine operator at Papelera Moderna, a paper mill in Havana (Cuba). Soon he was named technical director of the island’s paper mill, Empresa Consolidada de Cuba, and oversaw production of paper from a combination of sugar cane bagasse and, for largely economic reasons, recycled waste paper who knew he was in the forefront of a revolution! Soon after arriving in Miami in 1979, Remberto started Atlas Paper Mills, bringing with him everything he had learned about recycling. Today, Atlas Tissue is recognized as a technology leader and is committed to elevating our environmental stewardship to new heights.
We are a leading value driven, low cost, and vertically integrated paper manufacturer. We are dedicated to providing sustainable premium and recycled tissue, towel, and napkins for the retail and away-from-home markets. We are committed to the safety and well-being of our employees and exceeding our customers’ expectations.
Today, All of Our Recycled Products Are:
- Made from 100% recycled pulp;
- On average, composed of more than 20% post-consumer content;
- Process chlorine free (PCF) manufacturing, meaning no chlorine derivatives or elemental chlorine used;
- Produced using a source-reducing array of waste raw material sources (including aseptic
- packaging containers) thereby eliminating thousands of pounds of waste from entering
- landfills annually;
- Qualified for LEED® certification points representing exceptional customer value.
Today, Atlas Tissue, focuses on the four R’s of environmental stewardship: recycle, reuse, reduce and respect for our resources and our earth.
