In 1973, Time, Inc. acquired Temple Industries, Inc., merging it with Eastex Pulp and Paper Company to form Temple-Eastex, Inc. In 1978, Inland became part of Time, Inc. and in 1983, the companies were spun off as Temple-Inland, Inc.
In 2002, Inland acquired the Gaylord Container Corporation.
In 2007 Temple-Inland announced that it planned to separate itself into three stand-alone public companies and sell its timberlands by the end of 2007. Shareholders in the company would eventually receive stock in all three companies depending on the amount owned on the day the company split-up.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have identified Temple–Inland as the 24th-largest corporate producer of air pollution in the United States in 2002. Major pollutants reported by the study included acrolein, manganese compounds, sulfuric acid, formaldehyde, and acetaldehyde. Temple-Inland did not appear on the 2010 PERI Toxic 100 Air Polluters report.
