President’s message

As a leading manufacturer of information media, Jujo Thermal Ltd. has contributed to the development of ubiquitous society since its foundation in 1992.

And we are celebrating our silver anniversary with our strongest ever product line-up. Initially supplying with mainly facsimile paper, our current products vary from thermal paper, thermal films, one-side-coated self-adhesive label face stock to security products. But best-in-class products are just one part of our 25-year heritage.

Throughout the years, we have succeeded with our customers who develop their own business models in the complex and changing environments. Our product development has always been there to satisfy customer requests: longer preservability, resistance under specific condition, back side printable for adding value, non-phenol paper, customized colored paper and so on. We have been proud to contribute to the development of ubiquitous society. Understanding what creates value for our customers has been the bedrock of our success, and it will ensure that we also prosper together for the next 25 years.

Our technical expertise and teamwork are focused on providing solutions for our customers.

Quick response is a big advantage in putting an idea into action in this fast-paced world. For a speedy response, our owner Nippon Paper Industries Co provides crucial support and technical collaboration for product development in a global scale.

On January 1, 2014 Nippon Paper Industries Co. increased its investment in Jujo Thermal Ltd. and became the sole owner. Nippon Paper Industries Co. is one of the largest and most experienced paper manufacturing companies in the world aiming to achieve greater growth as a comprehensive biomass company. We deploy various strategic efforts for further growth as a member of Nippon Paper Group.

In paper business we have been facing drastic change in our surrounding economic circumstances and social structure. Particularly for information media the market is under competitive pressure.

We will focus on launching eco-friendly and highly-functional products by use of energy from sustainable sources and respecting nature in every respect.
