Contributing to society
by connecting people's
lives and technology.
This is what Unitika strives to achieve.
We inherit the past, support the present, and create the future.
We aim to be a company that continues to be chosen by the future.
Unitika was founded in 1889 as a textile company during the initial stages of Japan’s modern industrial age, and has continued to evolve into a functional material manufacturer.Today, with high polymer technology at our core, we are transforming into a global corporation that is actively and accurately seizing on the demands of the present and future.
Our philosophy has remained consistent throughout our history. Even in our constantly changing society and in the face of environmental problems, we are committed to contributing to people’s lives and support a high quality of life through technology.
Our efforts are aimed towards producing materials that fundamentally improve the quality of living supplies, industrial activities, and infrastructure maintenance, while manufacturing a line of products that create a better future.
We will continue to deliver solutions that are fitting for future lives and for the planet, at times through materials that are used in places that are often not noticed by human eyes, and at other times through products that directly impact people’s lives.
Our fundamental management policies
As a corporate group, we are committed to our corporate philosophy of “contributing to society by connecting people’s lives with technology,” and to become an essential corporation for society that contributes to people’s lives and the environment. While advancing our fundamental management policies of “strengthening infrastructure as a functional material manufacturer” and “strengthening our corporate character and capital stock,” we maintain our firm belief that contributing to society not only increases our corporate value, but also contributes to our shareholders.
Our management indicator objectives
As a corporate group, we place emphasis on sales figures, operating profits, and ordinary profits as key indicators of the success of our business activities. In addition, from the perspective of strengthening our financial structure, we make sure to be conscious of improving our capital-to-asset ratio and reducing interest-bearing debt, while attaching great importance to managing our cash flow.
Our mid-to-long term management strategy and the challenges we must face
In order to ensure the foundation of growth and to achieve further progress, we have formulated a new medium-term management plan effective March 2018, with the three Gs of “Growth,” “Global,” and “Governance” as the pillars, titled “‘G’ Round 20: to the Next Stage.” In order to accomplish the objectives set forth in this plan, we will engage in the following four challenges: leveraging our strength to further cultivate and improve our business, strengthening our ability to capture the growing market, the further strengthening of our business foundation, and the thorough enforcement of risk management.
