Message from the Director Responsible for R&D

We are currently facing dramatic economic and market changes surrounding our business enterprises. In these circumstances, R&D becomes increasing important in order to overcome this unprecedented transition stage and to succeed in expanding globally. The ability to predict market needs, select and focus on research themes, keep relevant divisions working together as a team, and operate with flexibility and speed is of the highest importance.

Based on the firm belief that JSR's R&D achievements form the foundation of JSR Corporation, we endeavor to expand into new research domains by cultivating our core polymer technology and integrating it with other fields such as photochemistry, inorganic chemistry, and precision chemistry.

We have built close relationships with major global customers in our expanding business fields based on our technological accomplishments and advanced R&D. Due to these relationships, we have a comprehensive understanding of advanced market needs and have provided products that are de facto standards of excellence in the market. As a technology-oriented company, we intend to continue to provide innovative materials by further developing our pioneering technologies.
