xpedx has grown through acquisition, but its roots as a paper merchant date back to the early 19th century. Alling & Cory Co. (Rochester, New York), founded in 1819 as the first paper merchant in the U.S., is one of the organization’s predecessor companies, along with Bulkley Dunton (New York, New York), which opened for business in 1833 and continues to operate under that name.
