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 has gone on to produce photoresists, which are electronic materials; Zetpol®, a special synthetic rubber based on our proprietary technology; and ZEORORA®, a next-generation fluorine solvent.More recently, production of ZEONEX® specialty plastics began in FY2020, a new manufacturing facility was completed in FY2022, and a recycling plant for specialty plastics is due to be completed in FY2023. These developments show the Takaoka Plant’s continued expansion as a production base for Zeon’s new businesses.We deliver products that are valuable to our customers under our policy of contributing to society with innovative technologies and through the engagement of all employees.
