Grow your business in the Park

Intenational Paper’s Ticonderoga mill is located on Lake Champlain and is the only mill in the world operating within a state park…The Adirondack Park. As stewards of the park, we are committed to maintaining world-class environmental performance. As the economic base for an entire region in upstate New York, the mill is committed to the well-being of our communities and remaining competitive in the markets we serve. Paper produced at the Ticonderoga Mill is made from trees harvested in working Adirondack & Vermont forests that are managed responsibly in accordance with the principles of the Sustainable Forestry Initiativeâ(SFIsm)and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) providing recreation, open space and economic benefits for generations and the future.



The Ticonderoga Mill employs 609 people, including 110 salaried exempt and non-exempt employeesand 499 hourly employees represented by United Steel Workers. An additional 600-700 independent loggers and truckers earn their living by providing wood for the mill.



The mill is a fully integrated pulp and paper manufacturer, producing 900 tons per day of uncoated freesheet paper for commercial printing, office and home use. The value-added, quality paper produced at the Ticonderoga mill is made on two paper machines, converted on site into rolls, large folio sheets and standard office size sheets and delivered to merchants and customers throughout the United States. The mill provides the economic base for the region and in 2011 purchased $152 million in goods and services; $37 million in wood and fiber; paid $1.7 million in property and school taxes; and contributed more than $335,000 to area schools and non-profit organizations. The mill’s 2011 annual payroll, including benefits, was $54.6 million
