This year Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc. celebrates the 50th anniversary of foundation. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the many stakeholders who have cooperated in and supported our business activities until today.

MGC was founded in October 1971 through the merger of Mitsubishi Edogawa Chemical Co., Ltd. and Japan Gas Chemical Co., Inc. Amid the significant changes in economic conditions at that time, thanks to everyone's support, MGC achieved steady, step-by-step development.

Since those early days, endeavoring to create new technologies and values, we have come to assist people's lives through a wide range of business fields, from basic chemicals, such as methanol, xylene, and hydrogen peroxide, to products with highly specialized functionality, such as high-performance engineering plastics, foamed plastics, semiconductor packaging materials, and the AGELESS oxygen absorbers.

In addition, MGC now has active sites in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North and South America and is promoting further global development.

Going forward, in our pursuit of both social value and economic value, MGC will strive to become an excellent company recognized worldwide by adding innovations stemming from future research and technological development to the technology and know-how that we have accumulated.
