NAGASE at a glance



We are “Business Designers”

The NAGASE Group began as a specialized sales agent securing exclusive contracts to sell industry-leading products from around the world in Japan. This enabled us to acquire leading-edge technology and information gathering expertise-as well as our global network-to transform our business into a hybrid model offering superior manufacturing, processing, and R&D functions as well as trading company services. We will continue tackling new challenges as a Business Designer as we look ahead toward 2032-our 200th anniversary-and beyond.

Business Designer

We use the term Business Designer to describe the type of company we want to become. While our main activities have been based in trading and chemicals, we have extended beyond those categories, integrating six functions on a higher level: Trading, R&D, Investment, Logistics, Global Network, Manufacturing. We are now designing businesses without boundaries.

Athlete Support

By supporting sports and athletes, we would like to contribute to promoting sports and stimulating the communities that support us, and in the end contribute to society as a whole. Based on our management philosophy of “Contributing to create a sustainable world where people live with peace of mind” while creating chemical reactions together with our supported athletes, we will grow together towards NAGASE’s 200-year anniversary in 2032 and beyond.
