Welcome to UP Paper

100% Recycled.

Kraft Paper.

The blend of fiber used today is approximately 60% OCC (Old Corrugated Containers), by definition post-consumer recycled material, and 40% DLK (Double-Lined Kraft).

The Company seeks to procure fiber close to its customer ship-to locations to optimize backhauls.

What We Do


UP Paper, a 100% recycled natural Kraft producer, utilizes post and pre consumer OCC and DLK from the Midwest Region.  We divert material from landfills obtained through local community collection units to larger corporate plant recycling.


As a company located in Michigan’s pristine Upper Peninsula we understand our responsibility and the importance of protecting the environment in which we live.


UP Paper produces a 100% recycled natural kraft sheet that contains a minimum of 60% post-consumer recovered fiber.  Our basis weights range from 25-70# (24 x 36-500 3000ft2).

UP Paper LLC was formed in 2016. We are a manufacturer of 100% Recycled Kraft paper with basis weights ranging from 25-70#. UP Paper is located in Manistique, Michigan at the site of the former Manistique Papers mill.

UP Paper is a reference to the Upper Peninsula, it is also where we believe this business is headed, up!
