The Yashio Mill is a highly efficient mill located in the Tokyo metropolitan area that provides a wide range of products for this massive market, including corrugating medium, linerboard, tube board, and chipboard. This is the number one mill in Japan in terms of the production volume of paperboard, with some 800,000 tons produced annually. Most of the raw material for the paperboard comes from recovered paper collected in the metropolitan area. The mill is also considerate to the local environment, having undertaken such measures as a major reduction in CO2 emissions through theintroduction of energy-efficient facilities that generate electricity such as biomass boiler and other methods.

The Tonegawa Division is actually composed of three plants involved in paperboard production, printing and converting, and multi-pack carton production. The paper mill is the flagship plant for Rengo's paper business, not only in terms of scale and facilities, but from the perspective of production volume and developmental prowess as well. Equipped with a No. 1 paper machine for boxboard and a No. 4 paper machine for linerboard production, the plant manufactures a broad range of products. Meanwhile, the printing and converting plant has become the supply base for Eastern Japan in terms of processed paper for decorative corrugated packaging. The multi-pack carton plant has become the main base responsible for enhancing Rengo's folding carton business, as it aims to respond to the demand for multi-packs, principally for canned beer six-packs.
