  • Who we are

    Nakagawa was founded in 1951 by the father of our current chairman and CEO, Mr. Yuzuru Isshiki.  In 1987 Nakagawa Manufacturing (USA), Inc. was established in Hayward, California.  We convert and sell all types of recording paper used in Point of Sale receipt terminals, ATM machines, office automation, medical engineering, factory automation, digital graphics, and other applications. 

    Since 1958, Nakagawa Manufacturing has been a pioneer in the paper converting industry.  By consistently leveraging the latest technological advancements, Nakagawa has grown from a small paper-converting factory in Japan, to a successful international corporation.
