A content was recently held among all employees of the company to come up with a name for this facility, and the name “inovas” was chosen. “nova” is a Latin word that means “new.” It also means a “new star” that suddenly starts to shine very brightly. Our company’s brand slogan is “Innovation for Customers.” As the name “inovas” suggests, we will go working to become a base that generates countless new stars (novas) through innovative activities.
By accelerating R&D in the Green (environmental), Clean (energy), Fine (life sciences), and Basic (basic technologies) fields, we will strive to strengthen our ability to develop new products.
