JSR CEO's Message

Since JSR’s foundation as Japan’s first maker of synthetic rubber in 1957, our focus has remained constant. We are a precision technology company that enables scientific advances and realizes their practical applications. Guided by our corporate mission of Materials Innovation combined with our focus on emerging science and technology, JSR has successfully diversified our business.

Today, we are established as a critical supplier to the semiconductor industry and helping to drive innovation for the microchips that power our world. Our Life Sciences businesses are helping to accelerate the drug development timeline and support the creation of more personalized treatments for cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. While the Plastics business makes high-spec materials for car interiors, like our proprietary anti-squeak resin, now in high demand for noiseless electric cars.

As our world faces disruptive pressures spanning environmental, geopolitical, business and technical impacts, JSR’s quest is to solve the most demanding technical challenges in the spaces that matter most to our customers and society. We approach this quest through a culture of curiosity, openness, and adaptability. This culture drives our passion to explore new and emerging technologies that can enrich societies around the world and enhance quality of life.

JSR understands that being a responsible corporate citizen requires us to embody the core values essential to who we want to be. We offer work environments that empower our more than 7,000 employees worldwide to follow their inspiration. JSR places great importance on acting with the highest integrity, ensuring our governance is transparent and robust, and embracing the responsibility to protect and improve the environment. Above all, we are committed to being a trusted partner to all our valued stakeholders.


Thank you for your ongoing support.
