Canusa Corporation can trace it's roots back over 30 years.
Founder and President, Bruce W. Fleming, began his career in the paper and recycling industries while studying at Princeton University where he resurrected the University’s floundering recycling program and completed his senior thesis on the economics of producing paper from recyclable fiber. After three years at Garden State Paper Company, the world’s first 100% recycled newsprint mill, Fleming founded Canusa as a domestic trader of recycled paper products. Since then, Canusa has expanded organically and through affiliates into an international trading company and processor of recyclables and post-industrial plastics.
In 1989, the company began to trade containerboard and other industrial papers for the packaging industry. Canusa developed a niche trading containerboard to the banana and fruit industry in South America, which helped spark Canusa's international focus and growth of Canusa Paper & Packaging. Today, "P&P" sources and sells approximately 180,000 tons per year of linerboard, corrugating medium and lightweight kraft papers around the globe for the packaging industry.
In 2002, Canusa merged its recycling operations with its most significant competitor, Hershman Recycling, to form Canusa Hershman Recycling, LLC. Subsequently "CHRC" co-founded Newport CH International in Orange, CA, a company focused on selling into the growing Asian market. CHRC now trades an average of 200,000 tons per month of fiber, plastic resins and metals in the United States and abroad. For the last 6 years, the units within Canusa's broader sphere have been consistently ranked by the Journal of Commerce as one of the United State's top ten exporters by number of containers.
Today, Canusa continues to evolve and expand by delivering innovative solutions, exceptional customer service with true Integrity & Teamwork.
