In 1915, thirty enterprising papermakers gathered together determined to form a new technical
arm of the American Paper & Pulp Association (APPA). Their idea was to gather and disseminate information concerning matters which have to do with production. This forward thinking group wanted to create a forum where information could be channeled and ideas could be exchanged. In less than a year, TAPPI was born and almost 98 years later, their formula for success continues to work.

We are a not for profit, volunteer-led association that is built around a community comprised of
thousands of member engineers, managers, scientists, academics, suppliers and others from
around the world.
