Back in 1902

It was back in 1902, when paper products were just beginning to emerge, that Clarence T. Brigham saw a future in the line. At that time, the only paper cup on the market was a flat type found in dispensers near water fountains. Grocers made their own "shopping bags" by rolling a flat sheet of paper into a cone shape. Paper towels? Only one type, rather coarse was available.

Originally a North Adams, MA broom manufacturer, Clarence Brigham closed his shop and moved to Pittsifeld, MA, where he started a paper products supply business. Incorporated in 1917, the business flourished, with continual growth.
