Not everybody gets to go to work and strive to save the planet. But wouldn’t it be great if more of us could?

At Integrity Fiber, we think so. That’s why we work as hard as we do to inspire and empower others to do their part.

From global retail giants to rural paper mills, we serve a diverse community of climate-conscious companies—because the kind of change we’re shooting for takes all of us.

Our industrial recycling programs create more opportunities for more companies to reach their goals, sustainably. Multiplying our impact.

Today, we divert about 1.4 million tons of recovered paper waste away from landfills and back into the economy for reuse in manufacturing.

By adding to the available fiber supply, we save trees and water, reduce methane gasses, and help consumers feel good about the products they’re buying and the packages they come in. Recycling also creates nine times more jobs than dumping waste in landfills and incinerators.

Our network is complex, but our philosophy is simple: do the right thing.

A company that stands behind its name.

Excellence in innovation, customer service and sustainability has been the core of Integrity Fiber's foundation since it was co-founded in 2014. Our extensive expertise in the recycling, paper mill, shredding and equipment industries can be traced back to significant events in our company’s history.

2014

Integrity Fiber Supply, formerly known as GHS Associates, hired Rick Torbeck as partner/president to manage scrap production from Schwarz sheet/box plants. Torbeck brought more than 30 years of experience to his role, including in mill buying, scrap paper procurement, fiber trading and recycled commodities brokerage in both export and domestic markets.

2015

A joint venture between two family-owned companies with long histories in paper and packaging, Schwarz Partners and Kraft Group, was created to strengthen fiber mill operations and build export supply channels for trading.

2017

Integrity Fiber acquired River Valley Paper Company. The purchase included four recycling plants and one converting plant (Akron, OH; Yulee, FL, Kalamazoo, MI and Syracuse, NY). This acquisition allowed Integrity Fiber to provide a more intimate level of service to customers with unique demands.

2019

Integrity Fiber acquired Marck Trading in Appleton, WI, a specialty group with expertise in fiber procurement for tissue/container board mills.
