NPTA connects you to leading paper merchants and mills

No matter what role your firm fills in the paper supply chain – working exclusively with paper mills, paper merchants or a combination of the two – an NPTA membership is essential for developing or enhancing relationships with the decision makers at these firms.

For paper converters, NPTA provides executive-level interchange with an extremely focused audience of peers and potential business partners.

More than 50 wholesale distributor firms, operating 1,000+ distribution centers, are NPTA members and attend our events in order to source new products and find innovative new lines.

Thirty-five leading paper manufacturers actively participate in NPTA to facilitate their efforts to establish a strong and profitable distribution network and stay abreast of trends impacting the distribution channel.

As a converter member, you can connect with both of these audiences – through an association that has served the paper distribution channel for more than 110 years.

Definition of a Converter Member:

Firms who convert paper from one form to another for resale in the distribution channel.
