Aiming to become a truly global company as a carbon pioneer
Toyo Tanso began as Kondo Carbon Kogyosho manufacturing carbon brushes in 1941. Since our inception, we have embraced the pioneering spirit of "manufacturing completely unique products", and continued to take on challenges in the pursuit of unique and innovative carbon products specialized for highly functional fields.
Since becoming the first company in the world to successfully mass produce large-size isotropic graphite in 1974, the Toyo Tanso Group's carbon products and technology have continued to evolve with the needs of the time. Our products are being adopted in a wide variety of fields, from familiar daily products such as automobiles and home appliances to cutting-edge products in such fields as aerospace and medical care. To meet the needs of an ever-expanding global market, we established production and sales bases in more than 10 countries across the globe, including China, America, Europe, and Asia. We continue to be dedicated to exploring the seemingly endless possibilities of carbon.
Now, fueled by the manufacturing spirit that has enveloped us since our foundation, we approach the next stage in our quest to achieve further growth as a truly global company. By pushing forward with an eye to the global market – including mergers, acquisitions, and alliances – while reviewing and conducting new expansion for existing business, and while keeping an eye open for new business development opportunities, we will continue to proactively advance our growth trajectory. Moreover, in addition to improving our manufacturing process with the goal of further improving quality and productivity, we will also strive to further strengthen Toyo Tanso's R&Ddevelopment systems.
To accomplish these goals, a solid foundation is indispensable. As such, we aim to further strengthen and upgrade our business management system and corporate governance system at the global level.
First company worldwide to achieve mass production of isotropic graphite.
Having pursued ideal quality and conducted extensive research and development as a specialized manufacturer of high-function carbon, in 1974, Toyo Tanso became the
first company in the world to successfully mass produce isotropic graphite. Since that time, our products have been supporting domestic life and industrial infrastructure in various fields.
Global supply capabilities
The Toyo Tanso group employs a direct sales system in which our subsidiaries in North
America, Europe, Asia, and around the world engage in processing and sales after directly gathering information on the needs of customers in local markets. We will continue to expand this network in the future so as to supply products to customers in various countries and regions around the world.
