Paper production is a traditional occupation for Japan, rich reserves of wood and various plant materials allowed the paper industry to flourish. But after the Second World War, Japan was cut off from half of its natural resources needed in the paper industry, now the forests of Sakhalin, Korea, and Taiwan were not available for production. The bet had to be made on the import of wood from the USA and Canada. To better control the flow of imported materials from the US in 1980 Daio Paper Corporation in cooperation with a Japanese trading company Marubeni founds a company California Woodfiber Corporation.
In addition to the search for materials for production, an important task for the company was the development of innovative technologies, such as. such as the production of synthetic paper. An important product that allowed the company to make a breakthrough in its development in the 80s was thermal paper, which is used for faxes, its invention opened up new, hitherto untapped markets.
