We developed ultraviolet absorbers for the first time in Japan.

We are producing additives  such as ultraviolet absorbers,  antioxidants,  copper corrosion inhibitors , and light-diffusing agents for plastic. We are also developing a variety of organic synthesis products. We are the first maker who developed ultraviolet absorbers in Japan. Our products are used in 80% of all plastic products in the domestic market , mainly in the fields of automobile  electronics and building materials.

[Company strength]
We have manufacturing equipment in various sizes mainly for production of ultraviolet absorbers . We are capable of handling manufacturing in different amounts, from mass production to prototyping in small amounts.  Since we successfully developed ultraviolet absorbers for the first time in Japan,  we have accumulated our manufacturing know-how, and we can now provide high quality products that cannot be copied by other companies.  We offer wide product line-ups to meet different user needs.  We are also capable of designing a new product to meet customer needs that cannot be met by existing products.

[Business description]
We manufacture and sell antioxidant and ultraviolet absorber for plastic, as well as additives including corrosion inhibitors for copper and light diffusing agents for plastic.  We are also involved in consigned production of various chemical products.  We have integrated our three factories into the one in Mikunicho ( Sakai City,  Fukui Prefecture) to enhance our production capacity and efficiency.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Ultraviolet absorbers block ultraviolet rays in sunlight  and prevent plastics from deterioration by ultraviolet.  These absorbers dramatically improve the durability of plastic, and for this reason, they are used in 80% of all plastic products  in the domestic market, mainly in the fields of automobile , electronics, and building materials.  There have been an increasing need for ultraviolet absorbers that prevent specific types of wavelength, as well as those that can improve the durability of plastic.  Leveraging our accumulated know-how and technologies,  we are proactively involved in research and development projects to satisfy those needs and have produced a number of new products.

[Representative's message]
We began our business with manufacture and sale of ultraviolet absorbers.  Since then, we have improved our development and manufacture technologies and sold various organic synthesis products both in Japan and abroad.  We have been focusing on overseas markets in recent years and increasing our export ratio.  However,  there are some fields where we need assistance from major firms.  We would also like to align our development and manufacturing technologies with the needs of large companies in Japan.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our Sales Department is handling new orders in collaboration with other technology,  manufacture, and development divisions. The Sales Department also deals with overseas customers.  We have an organizational system to deal with various sales methods upon customer requests (such as export directly from us , export via our agencies , and sales of local inventory via agencies).
