The History of PPM

Over 55 years of experience in the paper products industry

We have a long rich history in the world of paper. Australian Paper Manufacturing (APM) developed their first paper mill in 1868 and 3 mills by 1895.

By the 1960’s APM had up to 6 paper mills in Australia and paper production exceeded the domestic market requirement. A joint venture with other regional mills was established to open up a network for sales into new regions.

Our first offices opened during the 1960’s in Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. PPM Singapore later merged with VRG in 2004.

PPM USA opened in 1978, followed by PPM Europe with the acquisition of Froehlen-Reddemann GmbH in 2003 and a full name change to PPM Europe in 2015.

From April 2000, PPM was part of the PaperlinX Group, at the time, the World’s largest paper Merchant.

Today, there is only one original APM paper mill left in Australia at Maryvale, Victoria. APM is now Australian Paper, a wholly owned entity of Nippon Paper Industries, Japan, since 2009.
