About Paper Shavings

Paper Shavings got its start in the mid-1980s as a start-up paper recycling business by a couple of young entrepreneurs. After a decade of success, and eager to grow the business, additional products were added to the mix. Paper Shavings was one that was a success!

Almost 30 years later, in 2014, the Paper Shavings business was sold to Applegate Insulation which relocated it to its nearby Penrose, Colorado cellulose insulation facility.

Today, Applegate continues the tradition, producing the best animal bedding product in the market!
