Interesting Details

  • Ownership Change - On Nov. 9, 2001, the workers announced they had purchased Appleton Papers, Inc. from Worms and Cie.  However, this purchase included only one of their two Fox River  mills.  Worms and Cie retained ownership of the Appleton Coated - Combined Locks Mill.  Worms and Cie also retained all but $25 million of the liability for the Fox River PCB cleanup.  (The description below will be altered soon to reflect these changes.)   News articles:
  • Appleton Papers, Inc. and NCR Corporation are the 2 primary sources of PCB contamination in the Fox River, due to their joint production of PCB-coated carbonless copy paper, starting in 1954. Due to NCR patents, they had no competitors for this product. 
  • NEW  Arjo Wiggins Appleton recently gave $1.5 million to the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay to monitor and study non-point pollution (land run-off).   AWA is the former owner of  Appleton Paper Inc. and still the current owner of the Appleton Coated Mill.  AWA retained the bulk of the PCB liability when it sold the Appleton Paper mill to its employees.  Clean Water Action Council is concerned that such large corporate grants could be influencing University involvement in the PCB issue.  (See University Credibility Compromised by Polluter Donations.)
  • Monsanto provided the PCBs (under a Monsanto patent) which were encapsulated at the Portage, Wisconsin, Plant of Appleton Papers, Inc.   The PCB capsules were then trucked to the Appleton mills of the company, where the capsule coating was applied to the "NCR PAPER" carbonless copy paper. (See Sources of PCBs in the Fox River)
  • Appleton Papers, Inc. is controlled by a holding company controlled by a wealthy family in Italy.
  • Appleton Papers employees are planning an employee buyout of the company from Arjo Wiggins Appleton (Worms & Cie), using their retirement funds as a down payment.  (see news release )  Worms & Cie hopes to complete the $810 million sale by the end of this year.  Will the employees suffer the brunt of legal liabilities in the future for PCB damages and carbonless paper health effects, after many decades of profits have been drained away by the previous owners?  They face not only government cleanup costs, but unknown numbers of civil suits from injured individuals.  For more information, see these news articles:
  • Appleton Papers faces legal challenges by several groups of former office workers who contend that their health has been damaged by the PCBs and other coatings used on the NCR PAPER carbonless sheets.  Please visit the website for the Carbonless Copy Paper Injury and Information Network.  (Appleton Papers created their own similar but opposite site to deflect this criticism and claim “five decades of safety.”)  It's important to note that PCBs are rapidly absorbed through the skin and volatilize into the air, so long-term office workers (and Appleton Papers' mill employees) could have experienced significant exposures. (see Health Risks)  Though PCBs were phased out at Appleton Papers in 1972, it may have taken their merchants and customers several more years to sell and use-up old stocks of PCB coated forms.  And the newer substitute chemicals may have posed their own risks.  For more information, please visit these sites:
  • In 2000, the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) allowed Appleton Papers to increase their current wastewater pollution discharges to the Fox River by 21%.
  • Appleton Papers has a new website selling a line of recycled papers and describing their “long-term commitment to environmentally sensitive practices.” 
  • Recently, a former Appleton Papers’ chemist (from 1948 to 1985) was honored and inducted into the Paper Industry Hall of Fame for his leadership in developing the PCB coating for carbonless paper, among other things.

1950 - Sales are $6.24 million with 20,000 tons shipped.

1960 - Net sales are $16 million with 31,000 tons shipped. 

1964 - Sales of just NCR PAPER top $26 million a year. 

1969 - Sales for the year total $50 million. 

1970 - NCR Corporation purchases Appleton Coated Paper Company. 

1971 - NCR combines Appleton Coated Paper Company and another NCR subsidiary, Combined Mills, to form Appleton Papers, Inc., with headquarters in Appleton, Wisconsin. 

1974 - Appleton Papers, Inc. constructs a new plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 

1977 - Total sales of NCR PAPER* brand of carbonless paper, since its introduction in 1954, exceed 1 million tons. 

1978 - Total Appleton Papers sales reach $330 million. 

1978 - B.A.T. Industries (British American Tobacco) purchases Appleton Papers from NCR Corporation, for $290 million. NCR Corporation continues to license Appleton Papers to produce NCR Paper (under NCR’s registered trademark).   Appleton Papers and NCR Corporation signed an agreement pledging to share Fox River PCB cleanup costs, should this become necessary. 

1989 - Appleton sales reach $900 million. 

1990 - Appleton Papers and Wiggins Teape (based in the United Kingdom), another B.A.T. paper company, are merged to form Wiggins Teape Appleton. The new company is then spun off from B.A.T. and operates as an independent company. 

1990 - Wiggins Teape Appleton merges with French paper group Arjomari-Prioux. The new company becomes Arjo Wiggins Appleton (AWA).   During the 1990s, Worms & Cie, a French holding company, has a 40% share in AWA.  Worms & Cie, in turn, is controlled by IFIL, an Italian holding company owned by the Umberto Agnelli family, controlled by IFI..

1999 - Arjo Wiggins Appleton (AWA) created three autonomous divisions according to market segments. The coated free sheet business at Appleton Papers legally separated, creating Appleton Coated LLC, the North American entity for the Fine Specialty and Coated Global Division of AWA. 

2000 - In May, Worms & Cie increased its stake in Arjo Wiggins Appleton p.l.c. from 40 to 100 percent, when AWA accepted a £2.2 billion (Pounds) takeover bid from Worms & Cie, but retained its United Kingdom headquarters. 

2001 - In February, Worms & Cie announced it had "initiated discussions with a view to divesting its carbonless and thermal paper manufacturing activity in the United States (Appleton Papers Inc.)" by selling the company to its employees.  The Worm & Cie 2000 annual report also mentions "the drive to enhance cash flow management of Appleton Papers."

Comments about the Fox River --- from Worms & Cie's annual report of December 31, 2000, as quoted in the IFI annual report for 2000:

"The United States Fish and Wildlife Department, in 1997, brought suit against Appleton Papers Inc., NCR Corporation and five other paper manufacturers for the alleged contamination of the Fox River." 

"This event took place during the 1970s when the company was owned by the NCR Corporation.  At the time of the acquisition of Appleton Papers Inc. by Arjo Wiggens Appleton, in 1978, an agreement was signed with NCR Corporation for purposes of sharing the costs of the indemnities that could eventually be charged to Appleton Papers, Inc." 

"Since 1997, studies are being conducted to establish the feasibility of decontaminating the Fox River, to determine portions of responsibility and, thus, the eventual indemnities which, to date, cannot be estimated exactly." 

"In the event of decontamination work, the indeminities payable would be divided over the period of such work and, therefore, a minimum of about 25 years." 

"Worms & Cie Group does not feel that specific provisions are necessary to cover such risks." 

Clean Water Action Council's observations concerning this report:

  • Appleton Papers and NCR Corporation dumped PCBs in the Fox River from 1954 to 1972, not just "during the 1970s." 
  • Worms & Cie appears to be passing blame to NCR Corporation, when the majority of the PCB dumping occurred prior to NCR's purchase of Appleton Papers in 1970.
  • The Fox River situation and remedies have been studied since 1971, not just "since 1997."
  • By 2000, several official government reports had clearly estimated relative shares of responsibility as well as a range of costs, which Worms & Cie and IFI should have divulged to their shareholders (see PCB Sources in the Fox River).
  • These companies appear ready to drag-out the cleanup work for a "minimum of about 25 years."  This is a major concern, because public and wildlife health is at risk in the meantime.
  • If the companies don't "feel that specific provisions are necessary to cover such risks," they must be able to easily afford the cleanup costs.   The companies DID create special reserves to cover numerous OTHER financial risks and liabilities.
  • The companies fail to mention that they are expected to pay millions of dollars in additional compensation and restoration costs, not just cleanup costs.  They aren't telling their shareholders or employees the whole story.
  • In 1978, NCR and Appleton Papers signed an agreement to share PCB remediation costs.  It is now 2001, and they've done little to protect public health in the intervening 23 years. (Though they convinced the state and federal governments to pay the bulk of costs for a 1999-2000 "demonstration" cleanup downstream from their plant.)  Meanwhile, thousands of pounds of PCBs have escaped the Fox River into Green Bay, making those PCBs unrecoverable.
  • Could the company be deliberately misleading its workers about the true situation, as part of the effort to sell the company to the employees and shift future liabilities to them?
