2Stable business development From upstream to downstream in the chemical industry for more than a century

From chemical materials such as monomers and polymer to plastic materials and processed resin products, and from construction materials and environment-related products. Since its founding in 1903, we have developed a wide range of businesses, from upstream to downstream, in the chemical industry.
Based on its enormous amount of information and experience, we have established a position that has earned the support of being able to consult anything about chemicals.

At the same time, we have established three business structures that are not susceptible to changes in the times. We are also taking on new challenges, including the development of high-value-added products, by maintaining a stable financial base.

3Strength of People Long-established knowledge and the mobility of a medium-sized trading company

For example, the “Planning and Proposal-Type Business” involves the cross-divisional development of environmentally conscious products (cellulose derivatives, recycled raw materials, etc.) for new applications.
The reason why we can move swiftly without being constrained by a fixed mindset is the creativity and information network of each employee.

In addition, the expertise and responsiveness of the support side are essential for the successful linkage between raw materials and processing technologies and people. We will take on the challenge of creating value that will meet the needs of the next era by taking full advantage of the “power of people” cultivated over our long history.
