Cool Stuff Being Made: Mead School & Office

By February 9, 2008General

Time to take notes…or notebooks, as the case may be, as this week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made” takes us to the Alexandria, Penn., factory of Mead School and Office Products, where paper is turned into a wide variety of notebooks. The company is a division of the Mead Corporation, the Ohio-based forest products and paper company, with a long and distinguished (and now diversified) history, which extends back to 1846.

Chris Fowler, manager of engineering, walks us through the production of what are more precisely known as Mead composition books, a standard for would-be scholars everywhere.

As per usual, we write our thanks to the Pennsylvania Cable Network for supplying us the documentary materials. And to watch more NAM videos, please go to the aptly named YouTube page,
