Press Release 2018


100th anniversary greetings

Nitto Denko Corporation (referred to as Nitto hereafter) marked its 100th anniversary on October 25, 2018.
We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to our customers and shareholders and all other stakeholders, who have supported Nitto’s development for many years.

In 1918, during a time when it was difficult to procure materials from abroad due to the First World War, our company was founded as Nitto Electric Industry Co., Ltd. (Nitto today) in Osaki, Tokyo with the aim of realizing domestic production of insulating materials needed for electronics.

When it was first founded, Nitto faced many crises. However, Nitto overcame these crises and refined its foundation to become what it is today by pouring everything it had into each and every product, and by pursuing customer service.

The Nitto Group will continue to work with its customers. Currently, we are developing our business globally to offer various products in fields such as electronics, automobiles, housing, infrastructure, environment, and medicine, based on our core technologies of adhesive and coating technology.

In today's world, social issues have become even more diverse and complex as we move forward into a new age, and society is changing at a pace that is faster than ever. In such a world, the Nitto Group aims to balance providing solutions for social issues and economic development, challenging ourselves to achieve an even more comfortable lifestyle for people. More than ever, we wish to continue to be a company that is needed by the world.

As we move forward from our 100th anniversary, the Nitto Group will continually challenge to inspire the world and create values that the society recognizes, taking the changes of the society as an opportunity with our corporate mission of “Contribute to customers’ value creation with innovative ideas”.

We hope that you will continue to support the Nitto Group.
