About The Paper Tigers

The Paper Tigers

For over 45 years, The Paper Tigers has been one of the best known and most respected 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 paper industry's largest manufacturers worldwide.

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

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

Founded by Howard Zuker in 1967, the Paper Tigers has developed an extensive network of contacts and longstanding business relationships, providing our customers with a 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, chances are The Paper Tigers can offer greater selection, more competitive pricing and better customer service than you receive from your current supplier.
