As a business partner for technology development

We meet customer expectations based on the materials design we have cultivated through our long years of experience and extensive track record, manufacturing that maximally exploits the performance of such materials, as well as analysis/evaluation and analytic technology to support those two technologies. In every era, we at Starlite strive to always stay on top of state-of-the-art technologies, primarily relating to plastic, in advance of market needs. We go beyond just using these technologies, and in the future we will continue to maintain the technology development capabilities which enable us to offer newly developed, innovative technology as a business partner.
