■Core Competence

Research and development ability to meet customer requirements (application studies, patents)

The current resin coating technology on metals was first developed by Takagi Chemicals, and adopted by all automobile manufacturers. Thus, our name appears in technical drawings as an industry standard. Despite our company scale, we are the direct supplier of all automobile manufacturers.

Our polyester recycling technology was commercialized for the first time in the world in 1974. This technology was later adopted in automobile floor carpets and became one of our core products.
