New Business Development
Mitsubishi Paper Mills utilizes synergies between the accumulation of existing technologies and R&D capabilities to actively develop new fields of business such as electronics, environment/amenity and energy saving.
These efforts have come to fruition in recent years in the form of various non-woven fabrics such as high function filter and glass fiber sheet for cushion floor, and rewritable thermal recording material that allows repeated renewal of records. All of which have helped us to expand the field of our business. Mitsubishi Paper Mills also develops and sells products one step ahead of the competition, such as high function wipers, heat storage microcapsules and functional films.
The technologies developed to date have also been further extended to the development of new products and technologies such as desiccant air conditioning materials, unique electronic materials and printed circuit boards.
