The C.M. Paula Company was founded in 1958 by Charles McCullough as a small greeting card supplier and evolved into a leading developer and marketer of greeting cards, stationery and novelty products. In January 2005, the company completed a strategic transition from a supplier of consumer products to a management company of multi-faceted marketing firms. The initial acquisitions included two companies with unique product offerings that were poised for growth.
Today, C.M. Paula is a privately held holding company pursuing an investment model to purchase, grow and, preferably, hold profitable business ventures. The company’s seasoned team manages a well-balanced portfolio with the precision and excellence that continues to bolster and strengthen our impeccable reputation. Our expertise, combined with our integrity, and family approach to investing, makes us a reputable partner to business owners, management teams and the financial community.
C.M. Paula is a second generation, family-owned holding company dedicated to supporting the diverse companies we buy, hold, and grow so that they and their associates can flourish, as well as to empowering each company to be a reliable supplier of unique, high-quality products and services.
We are committed to the improvement of the human condition. The world is ever-changing, but our dedication to elevating the lives of people—our associates, those who work for our customers, those who purchase and use our products, and those in our community—remains consistent.
In 2023, in order to accommodate the rapid growth of all three companies housed in the corporation’s headquarters building in Mason, OH, CM Paula expanded its facility to add 36,000 square feet of workspace. This facilitated the move of all Remtec production into this dedicated workspace, while also providing for additional warehouse space in the original building for GeoCentral and Up With Paper. Consistent with CM Paula’s mission, the new roof is covered with a 550-panel solar array, making CM Paula the first 100% solar powered business in Mason.
