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. We have since developed many high-performance engineering plastics and other new materials and composites. Our key technologies are in tribology (friction, wear, 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 including the steel, paper, shipbuilding, industrial machinery, automobile, telecommunications, and housing industries.

We consider it our mission to provide joy and inspiration to people and society through our unique technologies and capabilities. To fulfill this mission, we believe our social role is to offer a wide range of products and services in niche fields. We do this as a world-class technology developer, capable of responding to the trust our customers place in us.

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 in our fields of endeavor.
