President / Sadaaki Tsuji

Pursuing the potential of castor oil products We will contribute to the global environment

In the 21st century, the increasing number of natural disasters such as larger-scale typhoons and hurricanes, torrential rains and tornados, extraordinary heat waves and drought, rises in the sea level, and increases in infectious tropical diseases are causing considerable damage all over the world. Considering that these abnormal weather patterns are probably attributable to global warming, now, human beings require wisdom to reduce CO2 emissions and air pollutions.
As we have done since our establishment, we at Itoh Oil Chemicals will keep making an effort for the stable supply and the qualitative improvement of the reproducible natural resource that is castor oil.
Furthermore, we have been utilizing castor oil as a raw material to invent unique products, which overcome our customers’ technical problems. Since our products are highly safe for human body and environmental-friendly, they are used in a wide range of industries such as household commodities, shipbuilding, the automotive industries, construction materials, and civil engineering.
We will dedicate ourselves to researching the usage of castor oil in order not only to meet our customers’ needs, but also enhance our main resource and introduce further functional products so that we could remain unique.
Itoh Oil Chemicals will also make a contribution to environment conservation by preventing global warming with the aim of becoming a company essential for society.
Your kind cooperation and continued support would be highly appreciated.
