Charles Kittredge, Chairman and CEO, Crane & Co. (and Champlain College trustee)
How does a 200+ year old company stay relevant in today’s increasingly “paperless” world? Charlie Kittredge, Chairman and CEO of Crane & Co. reveals how. One of the oldest names in papermaking, Crane & Co., best known for its high-end stationery, is literally making money. The company, based in Dalton, Massachusetts, and run by the same family since its founding in 1801, has a lucrative contract to manufacture currency paper for the U.S. Treasury and print money for countries such as Sweden, Saudi Arabia, and India. And by adapting papermaking technology to create a range of new products, it has moved into markets as diverse as energy, environmental services, and office furnishings. Learn more about this fascinating company and the family that has run it successfully for over 200 years.
