corporate philosophy

INOAC intents to create a beautiful forest comprising many trees of varying characters, rather than raising a single tall tree.

INOAC was the very first to start the foaming technology of polyurethane in Japan and has become a leading company of polyurethane technology.

However, rather than specializing in a single area of business, INOAC added other materials such as rubber, plastics and compound materials.

As if we were creating a vast forest with seedlings, we developed many new businesses (=trees) by handling such new materials

INOAC has expanded its business like a global forest that reaches to Japan, Asia, USA and Europe with varieties of unique specialties in material development, product manufacturing and service supply to contribute a more comfortable life for society.
