The textile industry is one of the oldest, and our company, founded in 1885, has a history of 138 years and has undergone many changes along with the rises and falls of the textile industry. Our company has evolved by adapting to rapid environmental changes and responding shrewdly to needs of the society and our customers. And the ideas and development know-how cultivated throughout its history are now an invaluable asset to our company.
By joining Hokko Chemical Industry Group in 2019, our unique know-how was combined with new textile technologies and chemical technologies, which resulted in a lineup of high-performance, multifunctional products useful in diverse fields to create new lifestyles and industries.
We look forward to your continued support, as we will continue to cherish Muratacho’s brand and tradition and work toward continuous growth and increase in our corporate value, in order to help achieve a sustainable society.
