Celebrating Over 150 Years of Sustainability
The history of Glatfelter is full of challenges, triumphs and industry achievements. We celebrate these achievements. For over 150 years, we have remained committed to enriching lives through continuous innovation. In the words of Philip H. Glatfelter II: “A productive enterprise must constantly be alive to the process of change.”
In 2014, we commemorated our rich company history with “The Glatfelter Story: 150 Years of Sustainability.” This movie depicts a four-chapter journey that began in 1864 and continues today through the drive and determination of thousands of Glatfelter PEOPLE around the world.
From the purchase of the first paper mill in 1864 to multiple facility expansions and industry innovations, Glatfelter emerged as a global leader in the manufacturing of specialty papers and fiber-based engineered materials. We are the Supplier of Choice to customers with products in over 100 countries. Every day, around the world, Glatfelter PEOPLE work to create products enjoyed by millions of consumers.
Through decades of growth and evolution, our Core Values remain unchanged: Integrity, Mutual Respect, Financial Discipline, Customer Focus and Environmental and Social Responsibility. All Glatfelter PEOPLE believe in these values. They are at the center of our culture, and are the key to our sustainability. These values have remained intact even through insurmountable odds: Through the American Civil War, two World Wars, the Great Depression and the devastating Dust Bowl. Through natural disasters. Through rapidly evolving technology. Amidst change and challenge, Glatfelter PEOPLE have remained resilient.
As our world continues to evolve, so will Glatfelter. In the words of Dante Parrini, Chairman & CEO: “We are committed to advancing our efforts and our thinking in the pursuit of developing a best-in-class, sustainable business.”
