Pioneer of Japanese Chemical Industry
Research and Development
In the past, into the future
JNC's founder Shitagau Noguchi, also known as "the father of electrochemistry, "was constantly aware of the trend of the times and introduced technologies and products conforming to the customers' needs, such as successfully manufacturing synthetic ammonia using the Casale process for the first time in the world in 1923, and starting manufacture of vinyl chloride resin in 1941.
We have inherited the gene for this pioneering spirit and have constantly lead Japan’s chemical industry by producing octanol, DOP, advanced compound fertilizers and ultra-high-purity metallic silicon for the first time in Japan in the post-war period.
Today, in order to satisfy the ever-diversifying and advancing needs of society, we focus on research and development of “functional materials for realizing an advanced information society," "environment-and energy-related materials for contributing to green environment and carbon neutral," and "life chemical-related materials for enriching people's lives."
We constantly hold high awareness for social contribution and promote research and development in hopes of realizing our dreams.
Reinforcement of production technology
As a production technology strategy, the entire company is engaged in Σ (SiGMA) Activities* for production technology reinforcement in an effort to establish proprietary technologies and to reform existing processes toward increased productivity. There are two objectives to these efforts.
The first objective is to develop new technologies in order to create new businesses, and the second is to adopt new technologies to make our facilities more competitive.
Instead of being complacent with our current technologies and skills, we are pursuing the establishment of a competitive production framework by further honing our technologies and skills to match the specific requirements of our customers.
