Georgia-Pacific (GP) is one of the leading tissue products producers and the force behind such household items as Brawny paper towels and Quilted Northern bath tissues. It also makes a wide variety of other products including cardboard packaging, plywood and lumber, related chemicals, fertilizers, recycled paper fibers, Dixie-brand paper cups, touchless towel dispensers, and office paper. GP is one of the largest US forest products manufacturers (with rival International Paper). A subsidiary of Koch Industries, GP has around 300 facilities across the US.
