The revolutionary stone paper product has been under intensive development by one of Taiwan's most innovative business leaders, the Lung Meng company since 1999. It was exported first to US and Japan in 2008 where it instantly attracted customers away from wood based and synthetic paper for corporate promotional and stationery applications.
The Auckland based Stone Paper Company secured the agency for the product in 2009 and branded the product "Rockstock" for the New Zealand, Australian and Pacific markets.

Our Quality Objectives: Innovation, eco-friendly, continuous quality improvement and customer satisfaction.
To Introduce revolutionary Stone paper products to safeguard the environment for the enjoyment of future generations.
1. That Stone Paper Products will become a primary type of paper used, thereby minimizing the felling of trees, airborne waste and effluent pollution.
2. To provide people with the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of this new invention by producing a high quality product at an affordable price.
3. To provide sustainable products that incorporate social responsibility and no harm to our environment.
Our Marketing Goal
To provide Stone Paper Products to the market via seamless supply chain management.
Founded in 1998, LM's steadfast commitment and sheer perseverance in spite of innumerable setbacks finally culminated in the discovery of a unique papermaking technology – one which supersedes the traditional method of using wood pulp – to produce a truly unique and eco-friendly tree-free paper.
With characteristic ingenuity, these "stone-papermaking methods" differ from "wood pulp papermaking methods" via the exclusive employment of a blend of mineral powder and a small infusion of non-toxic resin. Indeed, our papers are manufactured without the need to fell trees, without water pollution and without harmful gaseous wastes. An environmentally sustainable solution, this revolutionary stone papermaking technology has been patented in over 40 countries including Australia, Byelorussia, China, Europe, USA, and South Africa.
Making active contributions to protect our environment, the breathtaking invention of "Stone Paper Products" which are 100% pulp-free are strong evidence of this.
