Roots as a small family business have instilled specific ideals in today’s leaders. For example, everyone digs in to help solve problems—and executives swear by an open-door policy that backs the all-in-it-together mentality. The constant contact with leaders does wonders for team members—like giving them development reviews for personal growth. Since AstenJohnson offices exist all around the world, these reviews often revolve around building adventurous careers.
In 1790, the Johnson family opened its business doors in England—a hundred years before the Asten family started producing felts for European papermakers. Ever since the two merged, AstenJohnson's paper products and processes have shaped paper mills around the world that make everything from cardboard boxes to fine writing products. Today, the company is still trusted for its complete understanding of the paper-making industry's operations.
