Welcome to Inland Empire Paper Company


Papermakers Since 1911

Newsprint is both the livelihood and passion of Inland Empire Paper Company. We have continuously operated in Millwood, Washington since 1911. Today IEP supplies paper to customers throughout the western United States.

Our modern papermaking process utilizes residual wood chips from area sawmills and recycled old newspapers from community collections and other wastepaper suppliers to produce the highest quality groundwood paper available. To enhance the long-term stability of IEP, we own and manage 116,000 acres of timberland and developed Fiber Reclaim, a recycled paper and transportation company.

We continue to seek out opportunities to sustain our dedication to producing quality newsprint and remain committed to excellence in serving our customers, our employees and our community.
