Torrez Paper Company
Torrez Paper Company is one of the top Women-owned businesses in the country and a very successful distributor of paper products, industrial equipment and supplies. The company has several important contracts at the DFW Airport and a new contract with the City of Dallas’ Omni Hotel has recently been awarded as well.
Torrez Paper Company is on track to make 2012 four years in a row with over a million dollars in revenue and should be the best year yet.

Colinda Torrez is the President and sole owner of the corporation. Torrez Paper Company is certified by the Small Business Administration as a Small Disadvantaged Business, certified by the State of Texas as a Historically Underutilized Business, certified by the North Central Texas Regional Certification as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise/ Woman Owned Business and the DFW Minority Business Council/National Minority Supplier Diversity Council.
Torrez Paper Company has established a history as a successful business. 2008 was a banner year for Torrez Paper Company, Inc. – having received both the American Indian Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award and the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Groundbreaker Award.
The company was a new Risk Management SBDC client and start-up in 2002 and now has been a client, in business and profitable for over nine years.
Torrez Paper Company operates as a home-based business in Kaufman, Texas and leases office space from Olmstead-Kirk Paper Company, in Dallas.
Colinda on receiving help from the Risk Management SBDC: “Bill was one of the few people I called upon to help me plan a strategy. Bill’s knowledge and the time he has generously given me has proven to be invaluable to the success of Torrez Paper Company.”
