Building Partnerships in Excellence

Mr. Shoichi Ito, has received during an audience with the Japanese emperor "The Order of the rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays". Reason for this decoration is the outstanding development which was performed within the CHUKYO group since formation of a company in 1927. The CHUKYO group has production sites in Japan, the USA and in Germany which have also in each case an own R&D department.

The product assortment of the CHUKYO group encloses: polyurethane release agents, products for paper coating, additives for technical ceramics, additives for ABS or PVC and many other specialty chemicals. According to own information CHUKYO is in a lot of areas, world-wide, market leader or at least one of the leading companies. A reason for this very good position in the market is among other things the environment-friendly products which have mostly instead of solvents, water as a basis.
