Our Team

-The Global Fiber Sales Division-

The Global Fiber Sales Division mainly deals with staple fibers and nonwovens. Its primary businesses are supplying synthetic staple fibers as nonwoven materials for manufacture of hygienic products, such as disposable diapers, tampons, wipes, and masks, and the sale of nonwovens. It handles some 34,000 tons of staple fibers per year with its volume of staple fibers for use in short nonwoven fibers being among the highest in Japan. The team has developed a structure that can cope with a wide variety of customer needs and plans through provision of various and diverse types of staple fibers, and its high levels of expertise and expedition in global sales of staple fibers and nonwovens, demonstrated through domestic and international transactions and through trilateral trade, are highly rated both in Japan and internationally. Going forward, the team will further enhance cooperation with trading partners through development of a structure for integrated marketing, from sales of staple fibers through strengthening of its capabilities in nonwoven sales and solution-based sales, to product development.

-The Functional Products Sales Division-

The Functional Products Sales Division mainly handles products planned and developed jointly with customers or suppliers, through activities including product sales, development of processed products, and OEM contracting. Its businesses are built on two major foundations: the hotel amenities business and the facilities/transportation products sales business, which chiefly serves factories producing light electrical appliances. In the hotel amenities business, its disposable slippers, in particular, are a product line on which it demonstrates a high level of cost performance through the delivery of custom-made products for full-service and limited-service hotels in Japan and painstaking quality guidance at partner plants overseas, and its share of the hotel market continues to grow from year to year. It also plans to grow sales of amenities products through initiatives that include the sale of deodorant products developed under its own brand. In the facilities/transportation products business, it boasts the top market share in Japan for line pallets. It sells line pallets to customers that include manufacturers of electrical appliances and conveyors, as well as machinery trading companies, both in Japan and worldwide, and its Japanese-made line pallets are regarded highly for delivering better quality than competitors and offering solutions to help customers improve their production efficiency. It also has overseas production and supply structures in business areas, such as facilities, including line pallets, and processed metal products, and it sells products globally to markets that include Asia, Europe, and North and Central America to meet the needs of customers' changing business conditions. Its other business activities include sales of masks and proposing solutions for a wide range of products, including elastic and shape-retaining materials for use in masks, materials for medical and food-products factories, processed products for civil engineering and landscaping use, plastic multi-function beds, and interior and furniture products.
