Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd.
Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. (President: Yoshio Haga) restarted the commercial operation of Paper Machine N4 and Coating Machine 4 at Ishinomaki Mill (Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture) on November 15. The machines had been affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. This is the second resumption of operations of a paper machine, following the restarting of Paper Machine 8 in September. The resumption means that production capability recovered to about 30% of the total capacity of the fully restored Ishinomaki Mill.
Ishinomaki Mill expects to steadily resume operation of paper machines by continuing with the restoration work based on the Plan for Paper Business Revitalization announced on August 3.
