Company History

Click here for Company Overview

Ecological Fibers was founded on the roots of Narragansett Coated Paper Corporation in 1972 by Stephen Quill. Started in 1905, Narragansett Coated Paper Corporation set the foundation and roots for Ecological Fibers, while heritage, experience, flexibility and innovation have propelled Ecological Fibers to being a global leader in the environmentally-sound manufacturing of covering materials and design solutions. Initially a distributor of binders' board and related book construction materials to the domestic U.S book manufacturing market, Ecological Fibers expanded to include the Rainbow® line of premier FSC® certified, acid-free, lignin-free, dyed-through kraft colored papers.

Early in the 1970’s, Ecological introduced a number of innovative buying practices that are now standard throughout the bookbinding industry, such as enabling customers to buy only the cover material and colored endpaper in the exact quantities and sizes needed for their job. Once a novel practice in the 1970s, this process is now the staple among the book binding industry.

These sales innovations came directly out of Stephen Quill’s years of experience working in the bookbinding industry. Ecological pioneered the process of cut-to-size board and covering products, with the idea of eliminating waste while reducing cost and turnaround time, delivering goods to the bindery customers in a ready-to-use format. Such practices, once foreign to the industry, forever changed the manufacturing business and reduced per-unit cost of waste in converting processes such as board cutting, paper trimming, slitting, and sheeting. Guided by this basic understanding; binderies' in-house conversion facilities were a cost to customers, while binderies' production facilities were a profit source for customers, and that Ecological could provide the converting at lower costs through improved operating efficiencies, we slowly grew to become a global leader in manufacturing covering materials.
