About Us

About Us – The Norkol Family

From our inception in 1968, Norkol has operated as a family-owned commercial printing paper and converting services provider. Even back then, founders Norbert and Mary Ellen Kolinski believed in transforming everyday problems into solutions, rather than adhering to the same methods and limitations of every other company in the industry. Their creative spirit launched Norkol into becoming one of largest independently owned paper distributors and converters in the nation.

Sustainable Practices & Transformational Service

Thanks to that same problem solving culture, Norkol became known as one of the earliest innovators in sustainable, waste-saving practices within the Forest products industry. As a result, our knack for improving processes and practices also earned us a reputation for truly transformational service. Together with our diverse offering of quality products and a proven record of sustainability, our independent operation continues to create the same extraordinary customer experience our founders designed, with all the benefits of a 21st century upgrade.

Rapid, Reliable Delivery

In maintaining a versatile offering of paper grades and the latest winding, trimming, and custom sheeting equipment available at multiple locations, Norkol also ensures that our customers obtain what they need when they need it. Meeting and exceeding deadlines on rapid turnaround orders is where we shine the brightest.
