From pantyhose and lingerie to pressurized socks and female care products.

 

ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGE FROM ASTIGU

“When it comes to our R&D and which business divisions we are strengthening, we are looking to expand our work in the healthcare sector”

Shinji Nikko, President, Atsugi Co., Ltd.

Atsugi, headquartered in Kanagawa, is Japan’s leading stocking brand specializing in the manufacture of pantyhose, socks and lingerie products.

“We are very grateful that we have reached our 77th year in business here in Japan. We have been able to maintain a high level of recognition and trust from the Japanese population, and are proud to be widely known for providing a strong sense of safety, security and ease,” says Shinji Nikko, President of Atsugi.

The company’s products not only serve the undergarment needs of Japanese women, but the country’s growing elderly population too – an area where the business is today deploying significant research and development investment.

“When it comes to our R&D and which business divisions we are strengthening, we are looking to expand our work in the healthcare sector,” says Mr. Nikko. “We are now working on advancing this technology to improve our socks’ effect on the circulatory system and the nervous system. This also helps in coping with various illnesses and challenges that older people may face.”

Another area that Atsugi is focusing on is developing female-care products. “We want to adapt the various technologies that we have developed to create stockings and socks that are soft for the skin,” Mr. Nikko. “This will allow us to create even better products for women. Our thread processing technology can be applied to create the most comfortable products for women at various stages of life.”
