OSAKA, Japan, July 2, 2014 (Press Release) -Rengo Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Kita-ku, Osaka; Chairman, President & CEO: Kiyoshi Otsubo) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Rengo Packaging, Inc.-which carries out business in Hawaii, the United States-has commenced operations in May 2014 at its new corrugated plant on Oahu, Hawaii. A grand opening attended by many guests, including local customers, was held on July 1.

The new plant is located within the Malakole Industrial Park in Kapolei, west of Honolulu, and is the only corrugated plant in Hawaii. Up until now, all corrugated packaging used in Hawaii were shipped by sea transportation from the west coast of the United States. With the completion of the new plant-which is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment-quality will be improved and the lead time from order to delivery will be greatly reduced, enabling the provision of detailed services that are better aligned to customers' needs.

Rengo Packaging is the leading supplier of corrugated boxes and other packaging materials in Hawaii. In addition to further improving services to customers, the completion of the new plant will help to stimulate the local economy and increase employment, as well as assist the Rengo Group to enhance its business base for the Hawaiian and mainland U.S. markets.
