||Because product originality means everything
to Kureha, research and development is at the very core of its business.
All 350 researchers engaged in research and development activities
are committed to Kureha's spirit of "constant evolution through
innovation." Researchers are always conscious of the "Market
In" concept as well as evolving customer needs, and work
closely with the operations and manufacturing divisions.
Kureha's history of innovative product development and its record
of creating an established market for each product, are not only evidence
of the company's research and development capabilities but also its
ability to understand market trends.
The development of new specialty products have all been initiated
by the company's three core businesses: advanced products, pharmaceuticals
and agrochemicals, and high barrier packaging materials.
