Basic Strategy & Management Vision

Corporate Philosophy

Zeon is contributing to the preservation of the Earth and the prosperity of the human race.

Zeon, with its name drawn from words signifying the Earth (geo) and eternity (eon), is committed to responsible stewardship of the global environment as the foundation for human prosperity through the development and application of unique, world-leading technologies.

The Origin of the Corporate Name, "ZEON"

Zeon Corporation was founded as the first full-scale manufacturer of polyvinyl chloride resin in Japan, with capital and technology support from BF Goodrich Chemicals of the United States. Upon our founding, we adopted BF Goodrich's "Geon" trademark for a polyvinyl chloride resin as our corporate name. The word "Geon" is a compound of two Greek words: "Geo," which refers to the "Earth," and "eon," which refers to "eternity." It represents "eternal prosperity with materials supplied by the Earth." "ZEON" has been the company name since BF Goodrich Chemicals withdrew capital support.
