Toyo Ink SC Holdings, the parent company of the Tokyo-based speciality materials manufacturer Toyo Ink Group, newly opened this month the Shenzhen Toyo Ink Technical Center in Shenzhen, China. The new tech centre is established under Shenzhen Toyo Ink Co., Ltd., the Group’s trading and marketing subsidiary of electronics-related products in China.
Taking advantage of its location in Shenzhen, an area widely regarded as the Silicon Valley of China, the new site is expected to accelerate electronic device development through technological collaborations with tech firms in the region. Major markets of focus include smartphones, wearable devices, electric vehicles, 5G base stations, and other growth fields where highly reliable, high-performance components are a must.
“As a leading materials supplier to some of the biggest names in the electronics industry, we are committed to staying at the forefront of advanced materials innovation,” said Kengo Kochiya, general manager of Shenzhen Toyo Ink Co., Ltd. “The opening of the new Shenzhen facility is in line with the Group’s global strategy of expanding businesses in the designated priority digital domain, which includes electronics and IoT fields. Through the Shenzhen Toyo Ink Technical Center, we intend to increase technical exchanges with high-tech firms in the region, with the aim of developing new semiconductors and their peripheral materials alongside the Group’s R&D centres in the United States and Japan.”
Moreover, the new facility is expected to strengthen the technical support capability for Toyochem Co., Ltd., the polymers and coatings arm of the parent company. Under its LIOELM brand of functional films, Toyochem is a leading supplier of the electromagnetic wave shielding films, electrically conductive adhesive sheets, low-dielectric adhesive sheets and other advanced polymer-based solutions to electronics manufacturers based in China.
