Although International Paper has been the Old Faithful of PPI's Top 100, holding the Number one spot for many years, 2009 saw quite a bit of movement in the rest of the classifications. Fibria made its debut in the top third of the table, at No. 28, not surprising when one considers the size of the companies that merged to make up Fibria: VCP and Aracruz. Oji Paper moved up three positions but it was enough to crack the top five as the company came in at No.3 behind last year's one-two punch of IP and Procter & Gamble. Rounding out the top five were SCA and Stora Enso. Two Indian-based companies, BILT and ITC, also made a move upwards from No. 98 to 95 and No. 99 to 90 respectively. Metsa Botnia came in at No. 57, down from No. 35 in 2008.
