Polyolefin foam is a well-known product of the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group. With production bases located worldwide, we offer products for various industries such as the automobile, electronics and construction industries. In South East Asia, we supply piping and construction insulation materials under the Thermobreak brand.
Contributing to Development of the Aircraft Industry Mainly in North America
In the US, we produce molded plastic sheets for use in aircraft interior work and carbon fiber-reinforced plastic molded products for interior and exterior work. We are contributing to improving the safety, comfort and energy-conservation ability of aircraft.
Attempting to Popularize Industrialized Housing in Thailand
Through a joint venture with the Siam Cement Group, a prominent conglomerate in Thailand, we have been involved in the detached housing business in Thailand since 2009. We are gradually being more highly evaluated in Thailand due to the high performance and follow-up services that we have cultivated in Japan.
Promoting Innovation in the Netherlands, a Major Base
We have established many production bases in Netherlands for products including interlayer films, foam bodies and drainpipes, making it a major base for the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group. In 2017, a Research Center promoting innovation for mobility-related products was established. We plan to reinforce interlayer film capacity and establish new plants for heat release materials in 2020, thereby increasing our presence in the Netherlands even further.

Contributing to Global Health by Supporting Medical Sites
Like in Japan, we are also engaging in various businesses supporting testing, medical care and drug creation in the U.S., Europe and Asia in order to contribute to enriching the health and lives of people worldwide. In 2020, we have plans for expansion including starting operations at a test drug production plant in China. We are also contributing to border measures for protection against the novel coronavirus in Singapore, with our subsidiary in Singapore developing testing kits for the virus.
Contributing to Solving Water Infrastructure Issues Worldwide
In developed nations including those in Europe and the U.S., as well as Australia and South Korea, we are supplying renewal materials that can solve sewage system deterioration problems. In Vietnam, we have been supplying piping materials mainly for new construction works through local cooperating companies since 2017. In Thailand, we are producing CPVC, which is a raw material for insulation piping. Thus, we are deploying businesses that match the needs of each country.
