About Maruyoshi

About Us

Maruyoshi Chemical was founded in 1970 as a local distributor of chemical products. In 1993, we started manufacturing division to produce water-based emulsions developed by original technology. Since then, we have been engaging with chemical business in both trading and manufacturing.

We are located in Gifu, which has historically been center of traffic in Japan and thereby enables us efficient production. Gifu is also famous for its natural beauties represented by mountains and rivers. This location always reminds us of the importance of conservation of natural environment. We would like to challenge not only to produce better products but also to continuously improve our production technology for sustainable future.

We have never forgotten the importance of conducting business from global perspective. We started direct international trade in 2007 and it is important part of both of our trading and manufacturing business.
