American-Made. High-Quality. Unparalleled Service.

When purchasing a product, do you ever find yourself looking at the material the product is made from?  How the quality of the products rates – does it fit your standards?  And then, do you find yourself searching the tag, label, etc. to see where the product was manufactured?  Do you look for products that are specifically made in the United States?
Let’s be honest – it’s becoming harder and harder to find products that are produced in the United States but it’s becoming more critically important to all Americans.

In today’s modern manufacturing, companies are outsourcing to other countries to cut down on their costs, which in return, typically brings down the quality and service of their products. However, that has not and will not ever be the case at Yazoo.  Our products have always been 100% American-made since 1902.  That’s over 115 years of manufacturing experience in the United States.  Our manufacturing facility, located in New Oxford, PA, continues to create more jobs within our community and offers economic growth opportunities for hard working, skilled employees.

We are proud to have our manufacturing facility located in Pennsylvania, which happens to be one of the top 25 states for manufacturing.  Over 15,000+ customers rely on Yazoo’s American-made paper tubes and cores.  With keeping our manufacturing in the United States, we are able to manufacture high-quality products, have the fastest turnaround time in the industry, and offer top-notch customer service to our customers.

When you hear the word “roots” your mind most likely goes immediately to “tree roots.”  A tree’s roots are the anchor to the tree in the soil and help keep it straight and stable.  Tree roots are much like company roots in the sense that they help keep the company stable while they build and have continuous growth over many, many years.

Yazoo Mills has been around for over 110 years.  The company was established in 1902 in the heartland of Yazoo City, Mississippi (hence the company name).  We started out as a Yarn and Textile Mill and eventually made our way to our current location in New Oxford, Pennsylvania.  Even during the recession, Yazoo stayed true to their employees and didn’t lay a single person off.  While many companies were struggling, Yazoo was thriving and continued to build and strengthen a successful company.

At Yazoo, we are a family-owned and operated company.  We treat everyone like family.  Our employees are what keep our roots strong and everlasting as well as help the company
continue to build towards a successful future.  While our origins still remain in Yazoo City, Mississippi, we definitely do not forget where we came from and how far we have come since the start of the company.  Make sure to always remember where you came from and how far you have come – use the past to get you towards where you want to go in the future.

In this day and age, we find ourselves so caught up in communicating through technology rather than having to verbally communicate with others.  In today’s world, it is hard to find a “live”
customer service representative – most times, we end up speaking to a robot who is set with filters to try and accommodate our needs.  I’ll start off by saying this, technology is always evolving but human nature as well as human contact is perpetual.

At Yazoo Mills, we recognize that truly remarkable customer service goes above and beyond.  It’s about leaving people with a positive memory of your business and we strive to do just that.  We have continuously perfected our methods and have created a customer service and sales team having a minimum of 10 years’ experience.

Our staff is the most knowledgeable in the industry, which is why 15,000 customers from coast-to-coast depend on us.  Our team works hard and strives to give our customers the best prices and experience.  We listen to our customer’s needs and make sure we give them exactly what they want, when they want it, on time, every time. Guaranteed.  Each and every day, we receive positive feedback for our customer service and sales team, which makes us strive even more to provide our customers with the best service in the industry.Here are two quotes to keep as a reminder —

“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” – Roger Staubach

“The goal as a company is to have customer service that is not just the best, but legendary.” – Sam Walton

Have you ever found yourself looking back on your past, reminiscing on certain memories and realizing how fast time has really gone over the years?  Try thinking back to 40 years ago and where you were at that point in your life.

40 years ago, Sharon Smith, Yazoo Mills’ Sales Manager, started her first job at Yazoo.  She was 18 years old and has just finished her first year of working towards her Associate’s degree as a Medical Secretary at Yor College and needed a summer job.  Her parents were neighbors with Earl Noel, Jr. (Yazoo’s owner) and his wife Charm and Sharon’s Dad knew that Yazoo was hiring.  Sharon spoke with Earl and the next thing she knew, she was working in the Recut Department as a Packer at Yazoo’s manufacturing plant that was on Chestnut Street in Hanover, PA in May of 1975.

After the summer came to an end, Sharon decided to forego college.  She liked working at Yazoo and wanted to make a career with the company.  She began working in the office and did all of the general office duties (answering phones, taking orders, shipping/receiving, etc.) except quoting and accounting.  Fast forward to 40 years later, Sharon has seen the company evolve into the largest family-owned paper tube and core business in the United States, traveled to many different states for trade shows, and has been the Sales Manager for over 15 years.

Sharon’s favorite part about being at Yazoo is working with the customers and products, as well as satisfying our customers and finding the paper tubes or cores that will suit their needs perfectly.  Aside from working, Sharon likes to spend her time with family and friends, and looks forward to traveling more in the future with her friends.

Thank you, Sharon, for putting in 40 years of hard work at Yazoo.  We greatly appreciate all that you do for the company.  Here’s to 40 more!


Anywhere we go, we see hundreds of companies’ names and logos being advertised on billboards, television commercials, race cars, and everywhere else in between.  We have become accustomed with recognizing logos without a company’s name being attached to it but very few people are able to explain the meaning and history behind a logo.

Even though our company has evolved through many changes since the early beginnings, it has always retained the name Yazoo Mills, derived from its original location in Yazoo City, Mississippi.  Our Lion and Lioness logo was trademarked in 1936 and 79 years later, the logo is still in use today, symbolizing Yazoo’s strength and reliability.

Yazoo has remained true to the meaning of our logo, even when the country hit hard times during the recession.  Our company’s strength and commitment to our customers shined through as we manufactured countless custom orders fit to each customer’s specifications, while other companies suffered many losses.

We put our consumers first.  We are dedicated to continue to fulfill our long-term commitment to deliver customer satisfaction and quality, American made products.  Over 15,000 customers in a variety of supply industries nationwide, depend on Yazoo’s stock and custom paper tubes and cores.  Businesses can always count on our strength, reliability, and commitment to get the job done on time, every time, guaranteed.
