History of International Paper Ticonderoga
The original Ticonderoga Pulp & Paper Mill was built in 1882 by Clayton Delano. The mill produced newsprint, packaging materials, and paper for writing. There were six separate mills in Ticonderoga. In 1925, International Paper acquired the Ticonderoga Pulp & Paper Company. The Ticonderoga mills were closed in the early 1970s and production was moved to a new plant four miles north of Ticonderoga. The new mill rests on 2,169 acres, employs almost 1000 people, and produces 850 tons of paper annually.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at International Paper Mill Ticonderoga have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma or lung cancer. Making paper is a high temperature process. The steam and water pipes were coated with asbestos pipe covering, block insulation, and insulating cement. Furthermore, gaskets and packing material that contained asbestos were used on thousands of flanges, valves and pumps in the plant. The boilers and turbines in the powerhouse contained tons of asbestos. Even the paper machines and evaporators at the paper mill contained asbestos.
