Yupo Corporation – The Global Leader in Synthetic Paper

More than forty years ago, Yupo Corporation Japan embarked on a journey to create a variety of grades of synthetic paper that would stand out among competitors. Through extensive research and development, Yupo became an industry leader in its production and found that the waterproof, 100% recyclable, tear- and chemical-resistant synthetic had applications in the print, design and packaging worlds that were virtually limitless.

Currently the largest manufacturer of synthetic papers in the Western Hemisphere, YUPO’s technical superiority, its unique attributes and the many applications for industry and design make YUPO the only choice and the best choice. We stand behind all of our papers with a customer service and technical team that makes every single YUPO project your very best yet. We can give you “hands on” support – from planning and qualifying trials through final production.

The Growth of Yupo Corporation – In the U.S. and Beyond

Yupo Corporation America was founded in 1996 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yupo Corporation, headquartered in Japan. YUPO synthetic paper is manufactured in a 160,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility located in Chesapeake, Virginia. Products created at the Chesapeake facility are then distributed to South America and Canada, as well as major markets in the U.S. In addition to Yupo’s Japanese headquarters, Yupo also has a sales office in Düsseldorf, Germany.
