“70 years ago, on March 3, 1947, Sekisui was established with the aim of being a comprehensive plastics business. This was a new and innovative material in Japan at that time. Since then, we have expanded our business by providing products which meet our daily needs, such as tape and PVC buckets, materials that support government and private sector infrastructure such as pipes and guttering, high-performance materials for electronics and vehicles, and detached houses.
Over the years, there have been both frustrations and expectations, but our employees have always come together to solve these issues based on the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group “3S spirit” (Service, Speed, and Superiority).Through working together and combining our strengths, we have constantly overcome challenges and opened new doors.
In the future, we will continue to contribute to improving people’s lives and the global environment by further developing the frontiers of “creation of housing / social infrastructure” and “chemical solutions” through our prominent technology and quality. Furthermore, we shall double our efforts in order to maintain our strong corporate presence for 100 years and beyond.”
