Kansai Plant (Takasago Factory)

The Takasago Plant, which started operation in 1939, has been producing materials for semi-conductor manufacturing equipment since 2005, with the focus on glass substrates for LCDs. On the other hand, being strongly aware of the possible environmental impact that our business activities may create, we are active in developing activities such as the prevention of air/water contamination, resource and energy conservation, and reduction/recycling of wastes.
