What’s NAGASE

NAGASE & CO., LTD. is a chemicals trading firm

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 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.
