Tufco – A history of tissue and towel converting

TUFCO traces its foundation to Tufco Industries, a Green Bay, WI based tissue and towel converter for many of the paper industry’s largest players. Bradford Ventures, a New York-based investment company, acquired Tufco Industries in 1992 and merged the company with Executive Roll Manufacturing of Dallas in 1994 to form Tufco Technologies.

In 1996 TUFCO refined its market strategy to focus on high value-added products in two sectors: contract manufacturing and business imaging.

TUFCO closed the former Executive Roll facility in Dallas in 2003  and relocated the corporate offices to Green Bay. Operations at the Green Bay plant soon became the dominant growth engine for the company, manufacturing high value-added wet and dry wipes for the home care and personal/baby/medical markets.

In March of 2014, Tufco completed the process of being acquired by Griffin Holdings, LLC. Griffin Holdings is a privately held investment firm. This transaction converted Tufco from a publicly traded company to a private company removed from the NASDAQ Capital Markets.
