From Fukuyama to the World
Manac’s endeavor to revolutionize technologies continues into the global market stage.
Shoji SUGINOHARA, president

With its long-accumulated iodination and bromination technologies and development abilities as strengths, Manac engages in proposal-based R&D and is deploying pharmaceutical raw materials, information recording materials, and other products that answer the “advanced needs and potential needs” of forefront technological industries.

Although Manac was born in Fukuyama, Hiroshima in 1948, it is rooted in the salt making industry of the Setouchi area of the Edo Period. Since its establishment, Manac has been evolving the technologies born from the Seto Inland Sea to develop flame retardants and pharmaceutical raw materials. Furthermore, through its unique R&D starting with high performance polyimides, Manac has been creating highly functional products and other products of value needed by society.

For Manac, which continues to constantly develop new technologies and cultivate new fields with the firm resolution to “continue to provide products of social existence value”, the new market is the international one. We are thus putting efforts into strengthening and expanding environmental measures and accommodations to global standards.

Now that we have embarked on the vast sea of the global market, we shall endeavor to further revolutionize technologies with our core technologies of bromination and iodination cultivated from seawater chemistry as a compass and build up a future for specialty chemicals through proposition of highly functional products and high value-added products.
