Creative power of the Musashino Group
The history of Musashino Chemical Laboratory, Ltd. began in 1949, when we started manufacturing lactic acid with the synthetic method for the first time in the world. Numerous hardships stood in the way of achieving that as it was an unprecedented initiative. Nevertheless, we established the technology based on our determination to open up the future by proactively working on things not being done by other companies. As a result, we were able to secure a position as a global pioneer in synthetic lactic acid. The knowledge and expertise we gained in that process later became the cornerstone on which we have established production methods for alanine, pyruvic acid and a wide variety of other chemical products. In addition, the starting point of our company as a fine chemical manufacturer is our indomitable spirit to take on the challenge of developing creative technologies, and this spirit has become the driving force of our growth.
Our mission is to contribute to society by providing unique, excellent organic chemical products. We believe it is very important to contribute to technological innovation in various industrial fields and to connect that to affluence in life and society to realize our mission. We do that by developing and supplying chemical products which give new value to products and materials. Accordingly, we, as a partner, strive to create chemical products that lead to an improvement in the functions and quality of the products produced by our customers in a wide range of industrial fields. Our customers’ products are the end result of our daily R&D. Furthermore, the smiles of the people who use those products lie beyond that point. That is precisely our philosophy as an “R&D enterprise.” It is also the driving force behind why we work on difficult research.
