Inspiring the World with Our Original Technologies

President and C.E.O. Takamitsu Saigo

Starlite was founded in 1936 as a venture business to develop original phenolic resin sliding materials. Since then, we have developed many high-performance engineering plastics, other new materials, and composites. Our key technologies lie in tribology (friction, wear, and lubrication engineering) and cutting-edge molding techniques. We have grown over the years by applying these technologies with increasing specialization to a wide range of fields such as steel, papermaking, shipbuilding, industrial machinery, automobiles, telecommunications, and housing.

We believe our mission is to bring joy and inspirations to people and society all over the world through our unique technologies and functions. To fulfill this mission, we believe our social role is to offer a wide range of products and services in niche fields as a world-class technology developer who is capable of responding to the trust of our customers.

As we work to better accomplish our stated mission, we also understand that true growth lies in improving the value we bring to our customers, shareholders, clients, employees, and local communities. To create a solid foundation for these pursuits we will continue to refine our corporate culture and pursue the challenges that keep us at the forefront of an era in our fields of endeavor.
