Yamagata Kasei Kogyo aims to contribute to the recycling society in Japan in consideration of the environment.
Our company was established in 1966 as a manufacturer and distributor of Styrofoam. Styrofoam is a lightweight material with good insulation properties and excellent workability, and which has a wide range of applications, including agriculture, fisheries, industry, construction, and civil engineering. It also boasts a high recycling rate. The recycling rate in Japan is about 90% and is still improving. Our Styrofoam products are used as cushioning materials for precision equipment and home appliances, cold storage containers for agricultural and marine food products, heat-insulating building materials, and civil engineering materials. In addition, we have gradually expanded the scope of our business beyond manufacturing to handle packaging materials (sales), insulation materials (processing and sale), recycled plastic materials (recycling of used Styrofoam), and plastic exterior materials (installation and sale). These efforts were intended to achieve growth for our company and employees. Regarding the recycling of Styrofoam, we have focused on domestic material recycling, aiming to produce high-quality recycled materials. We are also trying to adapt to an era in which environmental considerations are essential. We have actively promoted energy conservation in our factories and received the Yamagata Prefecture Environmental Conservation Promotion Award twice. Currently, we are striving to improve customer satisfaction in each of our business areas. In addition, we have developed a unique business model that combines the manufacturing, sales, and industrial waste disposal businesses we have cultivated over the years to solve problems for local customers and operate in an environmentally friendly manner.
