Research Laboratory  [Details]

Kyoto Research Laboratory: Our core R&D facility

Set in Kyoto, an ideal location for joint industry-university research, this R&D center is composed of 6 groups related to sales activities and a production technology department. A total of some 70 staff members specialize in research and development. Research is focused on improving existing products, developing new categories of products and new technologies, creating advanced-function products and compounds, and finding new applications. By grouping our researchers according to product category, we've made it easier for our R&D and marketing departments to communicate. This gives our R&D staff an edge in the timely development of products that meet our customers' exact needs.

Marketing and development systems that keep us close to our customers

At New Japan Chemical, we're dedicated to developing products and technologies that meet customer needs exactly, and in a timely manner. Toward this end, engineers from our Research Laboratory are teamed with members of the marketing department. This system allows the marketing staff to keep abreast of technological developments and the engineers to stay informed of market developments. The linkage between marketing and research also helps us provide in-depth proposals and recommendations to our customers, complete with specific details about a product's physical properties or composition.

Products that anticipate market needs

New Japan Chemical collects and analyzes information from our customers and the market. What we learn is reflected in the development of new products, ranging from intermediates and derivatives to end-user products that keep pace with industry's changing needs.
