Chilpaco Memories
Early Chilpaco Scenes

The Chillicothe Paper Company

The Chillicothe Paper Company was organized June 21, 1919 and began operations in 1920. The intention was for the mill to specialize on machine finish and super calendar book paper as well as catalogue and lithograph papers. With one paper machine Chillicothe Paper Company was in business. Over the years the operation saw many changes with the addition of 3 more paper machines. In time a blade coater was placed in operation and an entire new line of products became available to the Printing Industry. No longer was Chilpaco just a major greeting card stock supplier but now entered the Coated/Supercalendered Paper product line. Some of these changes came after MEAD Corporation purchased Chilpaco in the 1950's. The Operation remains today but was sold to Westvaco, then to NewPage and was finally purchased by the Glatfelter Corporation. The grade line was changed and downsized as was the workforce at the facility. The CHILPACO that the Retirees remember is gone, but will remain in our memories of the MILL, the co-workers we left behind and the co-workers and retirees who have left us. These photos are a salute to them and the Chillicothe Paper Company (CHILPACO) that we knew.
