Commitment to R&D in the field of technology

Research and Development

On the principle that Research and Development is the driving force of corporate development, our research and innovation efforts are not only focused on new products and technologies in our existing business areas but research and development commitment is also positively directed toward new fields, including the new high-performance materials and biochemistry fields that will provide the basis for long-term growth in the future.

We also embrace a dedicated research and development commitment in pioneering technology areas on the basis of close coordination and cooperation with public research institutions.
