Main products

Laundry related business

Since the foundation of the company, we have sold detergents and other necessary materials for commercial and professional laundry businesses (the laundry industry). We commercialize products suitable for dry cleaning, which uses chemical solvents to wash wool and other delicate fabrics, as well as laundry cleaning, which uses water to wash clothes made of cotton, polyester, and other materials, in order to meet the needs of the times. In response to recent changes and diversification of clothing materials, we stay sensitive to the latest trends and reflect them in our business and sales operation. At the same time, we focus on the linen supply and dust control businesses, while proactively dealing with effluent regulations and environmental issues. We promise to be of service to customers by continuing to propose even better products.

Railcar related business

Railcars become dirty due to a variety of factors, such as iron mold generated by friction between the wheels and rails, as well as brakes; oil spots caused by grease and carbon; and protein-based stains caused by insects. We propose and sell detergents suitable for each case.

Metalworking related business

Taking over products developed by New Japan Chemical Co., Ltd., we promote them to each industrial field. We have a variety of product lines, such as "MILD COOL" for cutting oils and "NONRUST" for antirust agents. Those products are used for various purposes, and are required to have high performance. Since our products play an important role in manufacturing, we closely work with each of our customers, taking requests from and having in-depth meetings with them. Feel free to contact us.

Hand detergent for industrial use [Quick Bon]

Quick Bon is an eco-friendly hand detergent made from carefully selected raw materials in line with cosmetic standards. It washes away tough stains on the hands, such as machine oil used in factories, ink used in printing factories, and oil used at gas stations. We strive to use natural ingredients as much as possible for Quick Bon.

Trading business

New Japan Chemical products

We sell a variety of products, including higher alcohols made from natural fats, fatty acids, glycerin, surfactants, plasticizers, and functional resin additives, manufactured by New Japan Chemical Co., Ltd., our parent company. They are necessary in a variety of industries and well received by the markets. We also actively sell fine chemical products in order to respond properly to customer requests, as well as work to ensure a stable supply.

Synthetic resin and resin compound products

We propose synthetic resin materials and products based on market demand and customer requests. We also introduce desired additives and colorants.

Maintenance products

We offer a wide range of products used to create a better environment for trains, station yards, office buildings, and other facilities, using our experience and technologies accumulated over the years. We have many types of chemical agents and materials that can keep station platforms and restrooms cleaner. We always offer solutions from the users’ vantage point.

Body-care and other related products

We sell body-care products made from plant-derived natural ingredients, such as palm kernel oil, and palm oil, which are gentle to the skin and hair. They are also eco-friendly compared with ordinary detergents that contain petroleum-derived surfactants, in that the natural ingredients are highly biodegradable.
