Seven Decades Of Service

Family Owned & Operated

In the late 1940’s and the early 1950’s the paper industry in this country experienced a serious marketing problem. How to get product from the paper mills to the wholesale paper distributors in sufficient quantity and variety, and on time to meet end-user demands.

According to R.J. Schinner Sr. Founder of RJ Schinner, “There was a void that had to be filled, a place where wholesale distributors could go to get supplies without dealing with minimum truck load quantities and extended mill deliveries. I started this company to meet the immediate needs of the wholesale paper distributors to serve them on a consistently reliable basis”. 

That was RJ Schinner’s purpose in 1951 and it remains our purpose today. Our customer base has changed over the last 72 years, but our company philosophy has not. It was then and is now to consistently bring our customers the highest quality products, when they need them, at competitive pricing.
