In the extremely competitive field of epoxy resins, and particularly the liquid epoxy resin bonds market, Sanyu Rec has distinguished itself from competitors to become an industry leader.
“Our firm was selected as one of the top 100 global niche companies operating in Japan.”
Koichiro Nagai, President, Sanyu Rec Co., Ltd.
Established in 1958, Sanyu Rec has consistently applied its efforts to the research, development, and manufacture of synthetic resins. Today, the company is one of Japan’s foremost resin manufacturers and has established four business areas: electronic products, semiconductors and LEDs, construction and industrial products, and composite materials – developing resins specifically for each field.
“We’ve made our name thanks to our responsiveness in accommodating rapidly and positively to our customer requirements, developing expertise based on know-how accumulated over 50 years, and technical abilities polished through participation in fields at the leading-edge of technology,” says Koichiro Nagai, President of Sanyu Rec.
In the extremely competitive field of epoxy resins, and particularly the liquid epoxy resin bonds (LEB) market, Sanyu Rec has managed to distinguish itself from competitors.
“I think it is because we are always looking to satisfy our customer's needs. I would also say our products and services don’t really overlap with our counterparts,” explains Mr. Nagai.
Going forward, Sanyu Rec has its eyes set on servicing the automotive industry’s transition to electric vehicles, with manufacturers moving away from heavy metals such as iron to more lightweight materials like carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRPs) and resins.
“Our resin products are not only environmentally friendly, but also focus on economical contributions by improving conventional fuel efficiency. For example, we are working to reduce the weight of automotive structural materials by using foamed epoxy resins and to secure the rigidity of automobiles.”
