Relentless research continues to develop revolutionary products
We have positioned our Materials Analysis & Exploration Center as a corporate laboratory specializing in analysis and evaluation technologies. Its role is to provide support for manufacturing and product development on a companywide scale. Our R&D Center is responsible for developing new products and technologies that will play a core role in our operations in the future.
We also carry out research and development for Mitsui Kinzoku ACT Corporation, at our Yokohama Honmoku Center in Yokohama (Kanagawa prefecture) and our Monodukuri Technical Center in Nirasaki (Yamanashi prefecture).
The Mineral Resources Division engages in strategic mining in order to ensure the stable and sustainable development of our smelting operations, as one of our core businesses.
Despite consisting of four distinctly different organizations, the aim of our R&D structure is to provide support for each of our autonomous sectors and to continually seek out new products.
Integrating our strengths (core technologies) and external partnerships (e.g. customers, companies, academia) to develop new products and technologies.
