Onyx is a privately owned specialty paper manufacturing business. We produce and sell specialty papers into various markets, including automotive, decorative surfaces, industrial specialties, medical, graphic art, and wet strength. We operate a paper mill and finished goods warehouse in South Lee, MA. Onyx was formed in 2009 and acquired the assets of the Specialty Papers Division of MeadWestvaco on December 1, 2009. The mill has a long and rich history of paper making spanning back over more than 200 years.
We manufacture highly engineered papers for many unexpected applications in a wide range of global markets. Our products carry color, protect designs, absorb moisture and gases, and resist heat. Our paper products are found in counter tops, laminate floors, furniture, filters, graphic arts and automotive transmissions. While many of our customer relationships span decades, we put a priority on developing new products for new customers in new market spaces.
