Paper360 - September/October 2016 - 29

trendspotting | TOP 100 The PPI Top 100 This comprehensive list of the global pulp and paper industry's major players-formerly only available in PPI Magazine-has been a favorite resource for PPI readers. We present it here for the first time in Paper360°. This year, WestRock makes its Top 100 debut at No. 4. MARK RUSHTON, GRAEME RODDEN Following the merger of RockTenn and MWV to create WestRock, as expected the company takes its place in the "fab five" of the annual Top 100 table, coming in at No. 4 in its initial appearance. International Paper again leads the rankings and, unless the unexpected happens (and it has been discussed), it has probably cemented its No. 1 place for years to come with its purchase of Weyerhaeuser's pulp assets. This will only be reflected in next year's Top 100 as Weyerhaeuser operated as a company throughout 2015. On that note, however, this will be Weyerhaeuser's final appearance. Other than WestRock, the top 10 companies remain as last year, with Procter & Gamble, Oji, and UPM rounding out the top five. SCA, KimberlyClark, Stora Enso, Smurfit-Kappa, and Marubeni rank No. 6 through 10. Disappearing from this year's table are, as mentioned, RockTenn and MVW, as well as Wausau, which was taken over by SCA. Included are several new entries, particularly from Korea: Long Chen, Klean Nara, Hansol, Hankuk, and Jeonju Paper. Hansol, which has appeared in this ranking before, returns at No. 63. Canadian-based Catalyst Paper makes a big jump up the table to No. 50 from 72, thanks to its purchase of two NewPage mills; however, in late June there were reports that the company is itself the target of a takeover. (At press time, Catalyst stock had dropped following the announcement that the company would not restart PM 9 at its Powell River Mill.) Fedrigoni also made a big jump up the rankings, while Nampak's sales fell outside the top 100 companies so it did not make the list this year. Mark Rushton is senior editor, Europe and Asia, and Graeme Rodden is senior editor, North and South America, for Paper360°. Both have been part of the editorial team compiling past PPI Top 100 lists.
