COSMOPOLIS, Wash. – A new director of fiber resources has been hired by Cosmo Specialty Fibers.  Larry Davis will join Cosmo immediately from Rayonier in Fernandina Beach, Florida where he was most recently director of business development.

We are fortunate to be able to attract Larry Davis to Cosmo, he brings over 30 years’ experience in the industry, not only in fiber transactions, but also in a proven track record to successfully develop and guide our fiber purchasing strategy.  Larry has a significant background in managing fiber resources from wood procurement through to strategic business management of the timber resource. – CEO Michael Entz

Prior to working for Rayonier, Davis worked in a similar capacity with Champion International which ultimately became International Paper.


Entz said that, as Cosmo moves into higher purity dissolving pulp markets, customers have very tight product specifications and want to be assured that the company is managing both fiber quality and building long term supplier relations.  “We are pleased that Larry’s background will enable him to meet both those expectations very quickly.”
