Takaoka Plant

The Takaoka Plant is located at the foot of Mount Futagami, where the splendor of the four seasons inspired many of the poems by Otomo No Yakamochi in his ancient Japanese anthology Manyo-shu. The plant launched its operation in 1956 as a production site for vinyl chloride and it now produces photoresists, which are electronic materials; Zetpol, a special synthetic rubber based on our exclusive technology; and ZEORORA, the next-generation fluorine solvent.
The site includes plants belonging to ZEON Medical Inc. and Optes, Inc., that launched operations in 1990 and 2001, respectively. ZEON Medical Inc.'s Takaoka Plant produces various catheters for medical products, while the Optes plant produces COP Plastic films and plastic lenses.
The Takaoka Plant is rapidly evolving as a production site for ZEON's new businesses and provides useful products for customers under ZEON's policies of contributing to society, unique technologies, and engagement of and by all employees.
