In 1867, after the mill changed its name to S. D. Warren Paper Mill Company, Samuel Dennis Warren decided to add wood fibers with rag fibers for paper, making it the first mill in the United States to do so. The mill became the largest in the world, and increased its paper production from 11,000 pounds per day to 35,000 pounds per day by 1880. The firm was sold to South African company SAPPI, Limited in 1995, and now employs about 300 people, compared to the 3,000 Westbrook residents employed earlier in the 20th century.
