Kind to human,
kind to environment

Challenge for the future.


Our will lies in development.

Of the companies in the Oji Group, Oji Kinocloth produces original materials as a company that mainly specializes in pulp air laid nonwoven manufacturing technology.
Since becoming the first company in the world to manufacture pulp ari laid nonwoven fabrics from wood pulp in 1964, Oji Kinocloth has led the industry by manufacturing products at the forefront of contemporary needs. In doing so, we use our own original materials and high technical knowhow, based on our philosophy that “Our Will lies in development”. In recent years, we have expanded our technology from pulp air laid to synthetic fiber air laid materials.

In the world of today, social values are undergoing a major transformation. Awareness of the environment has shifted, while there is an increasing demand for safe and hygienic products. Amid these changes, we see the new challenge for Oji Kinocloth as being to devise, develop and reliably supply products that are “kind to people, kind to the environment”, as demanded by the society and lifestyle of the coming age.
Our philosophy remains unchanged: "Our Will lies in development". We now aim for further growth, perceiving our mission as being to build a more affluent future through our business activities
