ENEOS Materials: committed to global sustainability

Article - March 5, 2024

ENEOS Materials aims to promote technology skills, innovation, and contributing to the development of society.


Last year, ENEOS Materials – a subsidiary of Japan’s leading oil company, ENEOS Corporation –  was established following the break up of JSR Corporation's elastomer business, and is today engaged in research and development, manufacturing, and sales of synthetic rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, latex, and other raw materials. Since the original business was founded in 1957, it has contributed to the development of various industries, including the automotive sector, by supplying various synthetic rubbers both in Japan and overseas.

“In addition to our top-level R&D capabilities and manufacturing technologies cultivated so far, we aim to make use of the ENEOS Group's abundant procurement of petrochemical raw materials, funds, and global network to stably supply higher quality and even more competitive products,” says the company’s president, Hayato Hirano.

“In addition, in order to respond to changes in the business environment such as globalization, social infrastructure, mobility, and the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs), we will continue to improve our quality and technology skills, promote creation and innovation, and contribute to the development of society through materials derived from biomaterials and biofuels.”

ENEOS Materials operates with two main missions in mind. One is a direct contribution to carbon neutrality, which involves the supply of bio-based products mentioned above. Another is an indirect contribution, which is through the provision of specialized products suitable for energy saving and low abrasion tires.

“Over the past decade, our company has made significant strides, largely attributed to our overseas production sites, a global sales network, and a robust technical support infrastructure across Germany, Belgium, China, Thailand, India, Korea, and the U.S,” says Mr. Hirano. “These strides and measures are based on the ‘Glocal’ management philosophy and strategy. The business is about global development, however, the operations should be localized.  This is at the center of ENEOS Materials’ management policy.”
