JSR President's Message

Welcome to the JSR website.

JSR Corporation (formerly 'Japan Synthetic Rubber Co., Ltd.') was established in 1957 for domestic production of synthetic rubbers. Since then, JSR has continuously expanded its business to emulsions, plastics and other materials for the semiconductor, flat panel display, and optical materials fields by leveraging our proprietary polymer technologies. The development of these advanced materials for the information and electronics fields have served as a gateway to innovative changes to the company's business structure.

Under our mid-term business plan, "JSR20i6," whose final year was FY2016, we established our Life Sciences Business as a new business pillar of JSR Group. And under our new mid-term business plan, "JSR 20i9," which started in April 2017, we will be working to expand earnings by solution polymerization styrene-butadiene rubber for fuel-efficient tires (i.e., our Elastomers Business) and Semiconductor Materials Business in addition to our Life Sciences Business as growth drivers.
Moreover, we will be improving our labor productivity through responses to digitalization technologies and taking action to strengthen our competitiveness into the future.

JSR Group's Corporate Mission is "Materials Innovation: We create value through materials to enrich society, people and the environment". We will pursue the possibilities that materials represent, creating value that will make the world around us a better place to live and work.

As a member of the chemicals industry, we believe that it is our duty to be a company that makes sustainable development possible for all. We have made corporate social responsibility (CSR) an important part of who we are as a company. We are conscious of safety, the environment, and of engaging in fair business practices. In this and many other ways, we are building a strong reputation as a company that cares about the world and our local communities.

We look forward to your continuous support.
