Chuo-Ku, Tokyo, 104-0031 Japan
On paper, Tomoegawa appears to be a company with the "write" stuff. Tomoegawa Paper makes, processes, imports, exports, and sells nonwoven fabric and pulp. However, a declining market for traditional paper products and paper processing has led Tomoegawa to branch out into laminated films and adhesive tapes for the semiconductor and related industries. In addition to paper and paper processing, the company also manages forest land, makes and sells plastics and various chemicals, and has interests in industrial property, real estate, and transportation. The company's US subsidiary, Tomoegawa USA, is a leading producer of toner for copying machines. Tomoegawa Paper was founded in 1917.
