Our Business

Osaka Gas Chemicals Group

We develop, manufacture and sell highly functional materials based on our own coal chemistry technologies and pharmaceutical- and agrochemicalrelated technologies. In 2014, we acquired activated carbon producer Jacobi Carbons AB (Sweden) and are developing our business globally.

What We Aim to Be in FY2031.3

Engaged primarily outside of Japan, we aim to become a manufacturer of functional materials with a top position in niche markets that contributes positively to industry, life, and the environment.

Efforts Toward Sustainable Growth

We aim to establish a stable earnings base and achieve sustainable growth by developing and expanding sales of products with high added value in a diverse product offering,
while also pursuing synergies and developing new markets. We will also be working on substitutions in our business portfolio on a continuous basis to adapt to changes in the times.

20-Year Anniversary of the Launch of Xyladecor in Japan

Wood preservative and coating agent Xyladecor marked its 50-year anniversary in 2021 since it started to be sold in Japan. Initially, it was imported from Germany to sell, but after research and development in Japan intended to supply a product that is suited to Japanese climate and culture, it is now completely produced in Japan. Xyladecor’s performance has been highly evaluated by Japanese professionals who hold strict standards for construction and aesthetic consciousness, and is used in many cultural properties and community facilities. In addition, with the booming DIY activities at home, the use of these products in households expanded during FY2021.3. We will continue to provide high-quality material solutions.
