Founder

Founder of Tokushu Paper Mfg. Co., Ltd.
Dr. Katsutaro Saeki

"Our founder, Dr. Katsutaro Saeki, built the foundation for our company here to respond to those needing his guidance. He tried to manufacture special paper using innovative technology at that time. (omitted) His dream and his passion were to domestically produce special paper that competes with Europe and the US. Once as an official and with a role in training and developing the Japanese paper industry, to be an entrepreneur must have been an extraordinary decision even as a leading researcher of papermaking techniques.

Introduction of "50-Year Memories"
written by the former president Kaoru Watanabe

Founder of Tokai Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd.
Baron Kihachiro Okura

This 92 year-old man wants to tell you a story of decision-making from his many years of experience. "The most important thing to achieve nearly everything is trust. (omitted) Trust is not what pops up suddenly. It is gradually formulated through your daily work. Thus, recognize your responsibility in work and always do what you said. If you can make someone think you always keep your promises, you can gain his trust."
