Four Core Businesses

Achieving further globalization with the addition of the market pulp business to our four main business segments

The four main business segments of the Hokuetsu Kishu Paper Group are the paper business, the white paperboard business, the specialty paper business, and the paper processing business. With each of these core business segments, we continue to steadily provide high-quality products and to maintain top market share in the industry while meeting market needs.
We merged the three related Alpac companies involved in the Canadian pulp business that we acquired in 2015 and established the new integrated company Alberta Pacific Forest Industries Inc. on July 1, 2016. By investing in the pulp business in Canada, we are strengthening our position in the upstream resource sector and expanding our business portfolio.
