Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe’s Integrated Management Systems Certified

Jan. 25, 2013 (Press Release) - Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe’s quality, environmental and energy management systems in Bielefeld and Flensburg (Germany) have been successfully merged and certified.

In December 2012 the integrated management systems Quality (ISO 9001) and Environment (ISO 14001) were successfully recertified. The existing management certification according to EN 16001 has been replaced by the international standard ISO 50001, and also successfully audited.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe has for many years paid special attention to sustainability and the environment during the production of its coated speciality papers. The continuous improvement of energy efficiency, energy savings and thus the reduction in greenhouse gases are paramount in this. The new certification to ISO 50001 brings with it further improvements, such as establishing a system for data analysis and archiving, so that in the future more effective preparation of energy data for current production can be made.

These energy and environmental policies are an expression of a consistent implementation of the company philosophy.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe is a German subsidiary of Mitsubishi Paper Mills Ltd., Japan. The roughly 700 employees at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe produce high-quality thermal papers (thermoscript), digital imaging papers (jetscript), carbonless papers (giroform) and label papers (supercote) at two locations in Germany — Bielefeld and Flensburg.
