Since its launch on Aug. 1, 1892, Fukushima-Minpo Co. has been advancing together with the residents of Fukushima Prefecture as the publisher of a local paper. In 1977, we built the current office ''Minpo Building,'' an eight-story structure above ground with a two-story basement, in Otamachi, Fukushima. We have been delivering papers in vivid colors ever since the construction of the ''Fukushima Minpo Insatsu Center,'' a printing facility equipped with an advanced rotary offset press, in Sakurashimo, Fukushima in 1995. Our newspaper production systems were upgraded with a new computerized system in 1999. Based on our motto of community-oriented services, Fukushima-Minpo Co. will make efforts for further improvements to better serve readers by responding to a diversifying information society and fast-evolving technology.
