  • Description:
    The company is one of the largest production companies outside of Japan. The company produces photo paper, offset plates and membranes. Moreover, the research laboratory continuously works at innovation of existing products and development of totally new products.
    Following the rapid emergence of digital photography the company was compelled to terminate the production of rolls of photographic film. Following this decision the company did not simply close its gates, but instead decided to explore new markets. Now the company is working on the development of new technologies and products. Sustainability is an important topic.
    The company started the Open Innovation Hub Europe, an institution where the company is looking for cooperation with business partners to jointly develop new products.
    Emulsification is one of the focus areas of the company. They would like to combine their knowhow, facilities and capacity with the creativity and flexibility of the partners sought. The aim is to jointly make the difference in further establishing and developing emulsification business opportunities within the frame of a technical cooperation agreement or a manufacturing agreement.
