$928 Million Paper Supplier Announced Plans To Move Headquarters From PA To Charlotte


One of America’s leading paper suppliers has just announced plans to move their entire headquarters from Pennsylvania to Charlotte later this year.

Glatfelter, a paper manufacturer and distributor, said that they made the decision after they sold their specialty paper division and reduced their Pennsylvania workforce by 90%.

In a press release, Dante C. Parrini, the company’s Chairman and CEO, said; “Our decision to move Glatfelter’s headquarters to a larger metropolitan area is another important step in our ongoing transformation. Charlotte provides enhanced access to a larger pool of critical resources and talent for future growth, and the Carolinas are a leading hub for the broader nonwovens industry. Additionally, being near a premier airport like Charlotte Douglas International allows for easier and more efficient business travel.”

The company started in York County, PA in July of 1864 after Philip Henry Glatfelter purchased a small stone paper mill.

Last year, the company’s 2,600 employees generated over $928 million, according to their most recent financial statement.
