The TOYOBO Group takes great care in the manufacture of all its products to ensure the highest standards and measure of excellence. We make sure that all our products are free from defects, deficiencies and significant variation. We ensure strict and consistent quality control and adherence to all standards to achieve uniformity in our products to satisfy the needs of our customers and users.
Toyobo's business activities are supported by its core technologies. These are (1) polymerization, modification, and processing of polymers, carried out using expertise accumulated during the development of synthetic fiber, and (2) biotechnology which was developed when research was being done into the treatment of waste water from pulp processing using yeast fermentation technology. By exploiting this accumulated knowledge Toyobo has been able to provide the world with high-functioning products that include highly-transparent polyester optical films, super fibers, hollow fiber membranes for artificial kidneys, and enzymes for use in clinical trial reagents. These are products that have made major contributions to the expansion of Toyobo business activities.
Toyobo has prepared action plans for expanding new product development and creating new business. The company is taking steps to increase the sophistication of its core technologies. The R&D people are in close contact with other companies in Japan and overseas, as well as universities and research institutes and are taking the initiative in the rapid development of next-generation technologies. The objective being to create new products and gain a positional advantage in growing markets.
