Message from President


As joint venture company between Ube Industries, Ltd. and Nitto Boseki Co., Ltd., Ube Nitto Kasei Co., Ltd. was established in February 1966. We were the first in the world to start development of polypropylene band for packaging under our company philosophy “Having a unique inspiration at heart, become a company full of vitality and enthusiasm to open up the future.”

Further on, we have been producing high performance products based on our technology. Just to name a few, such materials for optical communication cable which supports the telecommunications infrastructure, high purity silica fine particles indispensable as gap spacer materials for liquid crystal display, the super long seller FRP support pipes for agriculture/fishery field, plastic cardboard used in a wide range of fields including logistics materials, and functional fibers contributing to high quality of sanitary materials such as disposable diapers, etc.

In the meantime, from being listed on TSE 2nd Section, we became a wholly owned subsidiary of Ube Industries, Ltd. in 2003. In 2013, we changed our company name to Ube Exsymo Co., Ltd. to take a new step.
We celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2016, and on this occasion, we have expressed our sincere gratitude to all our stakeholders including loyal customers.
Looking forward to the next 50 years, we will work together to create new products and strive to establish trust and to meet expectation from our customers.
