About Us

Taking the cellulose fibers locked inside materials headed for landfills, and allowing them to be repurposed in new products — that's the essence of our business.

We are a leading producer of specialty cellulose fiber products for use in industrial applications, providing thickening, rheology and flow control, high fluid absorption capacity, drain-down resistance, green strength, reinforcing properties, and acting as lightweight functional fillers. Since 1986, sustainability has been a primary focus of Central Fiber® brand cellulose long before it became the standard it is today.

Of course, so is customer service. This commitment is behind our unique systems for short lead-time delivery of our products — systems that let customers maintain lower inventory levels. And it's the reason we've earned a reputation for being flexible and responsive. Our unique size – small enough to act quickly, large enough to tackle almost any job – lets us stay that way.

With our new, updated facilities featuring state-of-the-art machinery, along with our ability to provide customized formulations to meet specific conditions, JRS USA is ready to serve you. Our goal is to become, and remain, your top choice.
