Two major Japanese paper manufacturers reported that progress had been made in rebuilding their production facilities damaged by the earthquake and the ensuing tsunami on 11 March 2011. One of them was Mitsubishi Paper Mills (MPM). The company put a board machine back into operation at its Hachinohe mill on 24 May. The company's largest mill, which can manufacture more than 800,000 tpy of printing and writing paper as well as board and over 500,000 tpy of pulp, was badly damaged by the tsunami. Nevertheless. the company is expecting to be able to start up more paper machines by the end of June though restoring full production operations in all mills is likely to take until December 2011.
