Based on the plan for paper business revitalization announced 03 August 2011, the Group is working to restart the commercial operation of paper machines N5 and N6. As a result, a total of four paper machines and one coating machine will be brought back into service at Ishinomaki mill, following the restarting of paper machine 8 in September 2011 and paper machine N4 and coating machine 4 in November 2011.
