Announcement of Change of Company Name in English


We are delighted to announce that our company name in English is changing as of October 1, 2017, from "AWA PAPER MFG. CO., LTD." to "AWA PAPER & TECHNOLOGICAL COMPANY, Inc." . Our company name in Japanese will remain unchanged.

    1. New Company Name in English
      (Old Company Name in English AWA PAPER MFG. CO., LTD.)

    1. Date of Effect
      October 1, 2017

  1. Reason for change
    For our further global business development, we will aim to expand a new brand image by the renewal of the trade name in English.
    The reason why we chose "TECHNOLOGICAL" as a replacement of "MFG" is that we are not just a paper-making company but a service company which develops functional materials which means that we offer our technologies not just manufactured products.
    We have expressed our corporate attitude with the new company name "AWA PAPER & TECHNOLOGICAL COMPANY, Inc." that we, as a company based in two main business fields of functional materials and technologies, will aim to meet the needs of customers, expand the scope of our business and develop new fields of technologies.
