Mercer International

We are exceptional people creating bioproducts for a more sustainable world, with operations in North America, Germany, and Australia.


Mercer is one of the world's largest producers of NBSK and NBHK market pulp and a leader in the forestry product industry. Our large-scale, modern mills produce not only NBSK and NBHK pulp but also biomass-based green energy and bio-chemicals. With our successful acquisition of one of Germany’s largest sawmills near Friesau, Germany in April 2017, we launched Mercer Timber Products, our entry into the softwood lumber sector.
