After our start as an eraser manufacturer in 1948, we successfully developed adhesives for footwear by utilizing our expertise. Since then, we have made various contributions to the progress of the production and quality of shoes. Even now, our company holds 60% of the market share of adhesives for footwear in Japan. We have also developed a wide variety of adhesives for many fields, such as automobiles, construction materials, wooden furniture, etc. while catering to the needs of the markets.
Our main goal is to lead the 21st century by “utilizing our expertise to offer quality products for the future.” In order to achieve this challenge, our motivated collaborators will strive to “connect” the whole world and make people’s dreams come true.
