Futamura Chemical was established by the founder, who had seen the devastation across Japan in last war,to reconstruct the homeland. The idea of treasuring the sense of values fostered by Japanese people has been embodied in the efforts of reconstructing the homeland. Japan is going to enter a new era in which its population decreases. Under such circumstances, in order for the company to grow steadily in the long run, it is of vital importance to think and act with a broader view rather than to seek its own happiness.
As a Japanese company, Futamura Chemical will cherish the sense of the Japanese traditional values and strive to ensure daily lives of people who work here and contribute to the industry and society as well.
