Kouwa International Co., Ltd.

We have delivered our film sheet products and heat-insulating coating materials to customers in Japan and overseas.

We manufacture and sell film products. We have four different business divisions: Media, Eco Products, Healthcare and Systems. The Media Business division manufactures and sells Kowa Writing Sheet and Kowa Shell Sheet, our original products, while the Eco Products division sells and uses “GAINA,” a heat-insulating coating material and other eco-friendly products. We have supplied products to private companies such as PLUS Corporation, Kokuyo Co., Ltd., NTT Telwel, and Yuasa Trading Co., Ltd. as well as to municipalities and the Japan Self-defense Forces. We aim to expand in Europe, the US and Asia, and so will participate in more exhibitions.
