YOO Corporation

We are expanding our business in Japan and overseas regarding a functional agent that has deodorization and antibacterial effects.

We manufacture and sell a functional agent that has effects including deodorization, antibacterial and antifouling effects, and mold prevention.

It can be activated even in darkness, and it can exert its catalytic effects 24 hours a day without interruption. We have many domestic Japanese clients, including Central Automotive Products, Kimura, Hotel Okura Tokyo, JAL-Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport, and R Metropolitan Hotel. We have a track record of overseas transactions in the United States, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.
