About The Paper Tigers

The Paper Tigers

With over 45 years of experience, The Paper Tigers have been one of the best known and dedicated companies in the world of recycling! Our years of experience and dedication have allowed us to become the company of choice for many of the industry's largest manufacturers worldwide.

We are a service oriented paper and secondary fiber brokerage company headquartered just north of Chicago, in Bannockburn, Illinois. We specialize in buying and selling various grades of paperboard in bale, roll and sheet form for re-pulping, converting, and printing domestically and internationally we also offer a variety of prime and job-lot paper board.

Although bleached board is our particular specialty, The Paper Tigers deals in just about any grade of paper, post-consumer or post-industrial, and we have the ability to add value to paper stock through our processing, warehousing and distribution operations located strategically throughout the United States.

The company was founded in 1967 by Howard Zuker and with over 45 years of experience in the industry, the Paper Tigers' extensive network of contacts and longstanding business relationships allow our customers a very direct link to sourcing, and the associated economic benefits. If your business requires stock lot paperboard for printing or packaging, or secondary fiber for re-pulping, there is a good chance The Paper Tigers can offer greater selection, more competitive pricing or better customer service than you receive from your current supplier.
