Toray at a glance


Creating New Value Using Advanced Materials

In 1926, we started out as a business producing rayon yarn. Since then, we have worked to manufacture basic materials, and have been involved in manufacturing cutting-edge materials and high-value-added products across a range of fields including resins, chemicals, films, carbon fibers and composite materials, electronics and information-related materials, pharmaceuticals and medical products, water treatment, and the environment, in addition to our original field of textiles.


"Pursuit of the Ultimate Limits," "Integrating Technologies" and "Long-Term Continuity" are key phrases at Toray Group

The source of our innovation is our research and technology development. Materials often cannot be seen in end products, so they do not stand out, but without innovative materials, it is not possible to create an attractive end product. The four core technologies that we have cultivated at Toray are polymer chemistry, organic synthetic chemistry, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. By pursuing the development and integration of these technologies to their utmost limits, new technologies and new materials can be created.
