The Hinde & Dauch Paper Company was an international paper-making company that was based in Sandusky, Ohio, United States. The firm was founded as Sandusky Paper Company by W. J. Bonn in 1880.[1]

Two developers of a hay-baling process, James J. Hinde and Jacob J. Dauch, later purchased the company.[2] It was ultimately acquired by the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company.[3]

A 2009 story in the Sandusky Register recalled the days of a century before, when the company employed 350 workers in the city. Local residents clearly remembered the scent of the company; to quote Erie County Historical Society president Janet Senne, "It smelled up the whole town. It made you sick to your stomach in the 1940s". In the previous two decades, Hinde and Dauch had been the city's largest employer.[3]

Three of the company's buildings are separately listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[4]
