- Was Kruger Products formerly known as Scott Paper?
Yes, Kruger Products was formerly known as Scott Paper Limited. In 1997, our parent company, Kruger Inc., purchased the assets of Scott Paper from Kimberly-Clark. The purchase included a ten-year licensing and trademark agreement for the Scott Paper name. We knew that we would ultimately have to change our name and, in 2004, began the process of doing so. Our new name – Kruger Products – was announced in October 2006 and completed a major, three-year rebranding initiative that created an entirely new and all-Canadian banner for some of Canada’s favourite tissue brands.
