We are engaged in making various kind of high added value polyolefin films such as products for food and medical.

We manufacture our products with a method called the “Blown film extrusion” that melts thermoplastic (plastic) resin with heat, then blows it up like a balloon to make a thin film. They are functional films with properties such as “light shielding” and “deodorization” that designed for frozen food packages, sealing tapes for electric wires and water pipes, and packing materials. We mainly focus on order-made products to meet customers’ needs rather than standard products, and also make strong efforts to develop new products. Exploring knowledge about raw materials, and “film-making and related technology” further, we can make the only-one film in the world for you.
