Domtar’s Cougar® paper brand has given life to creative ideas across North America for a half century. Featured in presidential holiday cards, the Kate Spade Brand Book and music festival posters, Cougar’s reputation for quality and consistency has set the brand apart.
But it all begins at our Rothschild Mill on the east bank of the Wisconsin River.
That’s where more than 320 mill employees recently celebrated 50 years of Cougar alongside senior Domtar leaders and community stakeholders. The two-day event included birthday cake, employee giveaways and mill tours.
The 50th anniversary event recognized the work behind the printed page. Employees and leaders celebrated the mill’s commitment to quality and safety. Guests included representatives from the Wisconsin Paper Council and the Wausau Chamber of Commerce.
“It was great to see the people behind Cougar who have helped Domtar build one of the industry’s leading brands over all these years, and all of the personal passion that goes into making the grade every day,” says Rob Melton, Domtar’s senior vice president of pulp and paper commercial.
Bill Edwards, Domtar’s senior vice president of pulp and paper operations, says, “It was great to be in Rothschild again, celebrating on the floor, shaking hands with the employees who have made 50 years of Cougar possible.”
