History

Pacon was founded in 1951 as Paper Converters, Inc. in Appleton, Wisconsin. Our product offerings kept growing, and we soon outgrew our facility within a former paper mill. In 1968 we relocated to the Casaloma Drive facility we are still operating from today.

We continue to expand and grow our business to offer our customers the most dynamic range of educational products under the sun. We strive to provide innovative products for both the classroom and home. We are proud to offer brands such as Fadeless® Paper, Bordette® Borders, Tru-Ray® Construction Paper, Art1st® Art Papers, Classroom Keepers®, Creativity Street® and WonderFoam®

Pacon is proud to include Strathmore Artist Papers™, Bemiss-Jason and Superior Specialties in our family.
