The Information & Electronics Division I provides services to a wide array of customers all over the world. We supply materials such as polarizing films, electronic parts for backlight units, encapsulant for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and materials for special-use tape for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Our customers are mainly the flat panel display (FPD) industry dealing with LCDs and organic LEDs (OLEDs), as well as the LED-related industry.
Our major strengths are our capability to propose ideas that go one step beyond expectations, based on our highly specialized knowledge, as well as a solid record of building supply chains and offering various processing services. In addition to further strengthening customer relations in Japan, we are also focused on expanding business with overseas manufacturers in countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and U.S., in the fields of LCDs and OLEDs.
With these businesses at the core, we will continue to seek opportunities in new fields as well, taking advantage of our existing customer network.
