About us

Company details

About Joe Piper Inc.

In 1968, Joe Piper made a discovery that would forever change the paperboard industry. While calling on a company making garment hangers, he was asked to find a suitable substrate to be used as a trouser guard. He found a mill supplier that had hundreds of tons of off spec Milk Carton Stock with no market for it. When his customer purchased the first truckload and began successfully using this material, the job lot paperboard industry was born. Until this time almost no one was even aware this opportunity existed. Joe incorporated his business and began to purchase rejected board from the mills, warehouse it, and sell it under his own name. Customers and growth followed.

By 1973, Joe Piper Inc. was the leading distributor of poly coated job lot board in the country. More grades of bleached board were added to our inventory as other mills became eager to supply us. Soon, we invested in our own warehouse and converting facilities.

We continue to add new paperboard grades to our inventory to give our customers a wider variety of options.

Today, Joe Piper Inc. continues the legacy our founder began 41 years ago. Ann Piper is now President and CEO of the company, making it one of the largest female owned companies in America. With over 30 years in the paper industry, she strives to maintain Piper’s leadership position.

Currently, Piper services customers from two state-of-the-art distribution centers located in Birmingham, Alabama. These buildings provide over 750,000 square feet for warehousing and converting. Precision folio sheeters and slitter rewinders offer custom cut to size sheets and rolls with quality that is second to none.

Constantly improving our business to serve our customers is the key reason why Joe Piper Inc. is the worldwide leader in job lot paperboard distribution.
