SCRANTON, Pa. (NBC) — America’s most famous paper company celebrated its 100th anniversary on Friday.
The Pennsylvania Paper and Supply Co. of Scranton, Pennsylvania marked the special occasion with a ribbon cutting.
Fans of the American sitcom “The Office,” which originally aired on NBC, will recognize the building and associate it with its fictional paper company, Dunder Mifflin.
The real-life, family-owned stationery business is now in its third generation.
“My grandfather Jacob Fink and my father Jerry Fink would be proud to see how their business has grown over the past 100 years and surprised to learn that our building is a world-famous landmark,” said Douglas Fink, president of Pennsylvania Paper & Supply. in a press release commemorating the anniversary. “John Krasinski took this photo of our tower in 2004 while researching Office and for his role as Jim Halpert in the fictional Dunder Mifflin.
The business was not always housed in the now notable location. As the company grew, it moved several times before landing in the iconic tower nearly 55 years ago.
“Nearly two decades later, fans are still coming forward looking for the real Dunder Mifflin, but we’re not the colorful eccentrics of ‘The Office’; we are a team of 300 professionals rooted in 100 years of history,” Fink said in the release.
