About GP

Founded in 1927 as a wholesaler of hardwood lumber, Georgia-Pacific has grown through expansion and acquisitions to become one of the world's leading manufacturers and marketers of tissue, pulp, paper, packaging, building products and related chemicals.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia-Pacific employs more than 45,000 people at approximately 300 locations worldwide. The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange from 1949 through 2005, when it was acquired as a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc., a privately owned company based in Wichita, Kansas. In 2000, Georgia-Pacific acquired Fort James Corp. and its consumer brands Brawny®, Quilted Northern® and Dixie®, becoming the world's leading manufacturer of tissue products. The business to business portion of this acquisition is known today as Georgia-Pacific Professional. This business unit makes and sells towels, tissue, napkins, cups, plates and cutlery and dispensers for use by a broad range of businesses in North America.

Two business groups operate under the Georgia-Pacific Professional business. The Washroom and Wiper Solutions group provides the full range of products to market segments including office buildings, healthcare, manufacturing, and lodging facilities. The Food Services Solutions group focuses on such segments as restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience stores. The Georgia-Pacific Professional business features such well-known product brands as enMotion®, Compact®, Dixie®, EasyNap®, SmartStock® and Brawny Industrial™.

Georgia-Pacific Professional supports good health and hygiene and offers a host of products to promote personal cleanliness. For example, in 2003, GP Professional introduced enMotion® automated touchless paper towel dispensers. The enMotion® brand has grown steadily over the past seven years and has become synonymous with the reduction of cross-contamination by dispensing sanitary, quality towels without the need to touch the dispenser. This is just one of the products GP Professional makes that helps create a safe and healthy environment.
