Clearfield Wholesale Paper Marks 100th Anniversary


CLEARFIELD, PA — Clearfield Wholesale Paper (CWP) is 100 years old this year!  Founded in June 1922, CWP was started by the great-grandfather of current president Joel Peterson to fill the supply needs of company stores owned by mining companies and local groceries.  

One hundred years later CWP maintains its roots in Clearfield and now serves a vast array of customers including industrial, commercial and institutional sectors across multiple states and has expanded the product offering to 40,000 items.  

CWP’s products have changed over the years from retail supplies to janitorial, facility, industrial packaging, safety, breakroom and office supplies, food-service disposables and floor care equipment, most of which can be ordered online. 

One thing that hasn’t changed in 100 years says Joel Peterson, “Our focus on customers, employees and community has been the key to CWP’s success, and we plan to continue this focus and success long into the future.”
