Rengo was founded in 1909 and is headquartered in Osaka, Japan. The company together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells paperboard, corrugated boxes, folding cartons and flexible packaging in Japan and in other parts of the world. Rengo today operates 198 plants across 29 locations in Asia, Europe and North America.
