Our headquarter

Asahi Printing Co., Ltd 朝日印刷株式会社 was founded in 1872 originally as Ozawa Print Shop, and established in 1946 as Asahi Printing Paper Packaging Co., Ltd.

In the early 1960s, Asahi Printing leveraged the location of Toyama, an area known for its medications, to establish a unique position as a supplier of printing packaging for household deposit pharmaceuticals, which is a leading local industry. Then Asahi Printing established operation sites in major cities in Japan to expand their pharmaceutical packaging business nationwide.

In the late 1970s, Asahi Printing advanced to the cosmetics packaging field. Along with the steady business performance, Asahi Printing built the Toyama Plant in 1989, the Toyama Second Plant in 2003, the Toyama East Plant in 2008, and the Toyama South Plant in 2010. In 2012, Toyama Third Plant was established as a separate plant from Toyama Second Plant, and have consolidated our production system by market and product category.

Moreover, in 2015, Asahi Printing built the Kyoto Creative Park, which also plays a role of a new technology research and development facility. Asahi Printing holds the Japanese top market share in packaging materials for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
