Always Looking 100 Steps Ahead
Always Looking 100 Steps Ahead
Nearly a century and a half ago in 1872, Kumanoya began importing Western paints at a time when only natural dyes and pigments were available in Japan. We were among the first to realize that paints could be used not only to apply color, but through the power of chemistry could also function to prevent rust and corrosion. At the time, the word for "paint" (toryou) did not even exist in Japan, and Kumanoya was the first to use it. Ourperspective in looking far ahead while at the same time maintaining a broad field of view has remained the same ever since our founding. With our ability to find accurate solutions to problems, we have continued to give paints new functions as we paint over conventional ideas. Different paint types are used depending on the material being painted, and the functions required of a paint as well depend on the location and conditions where it is used. Consideration must also be given to the surrounding environment. It is the mission of Kumanoya to consider and identify all these factors, and apply our power of imagination and creativity to provide proposals that exceed the customers' expectations. In all areas, including the future, the places where our customers’ products are used, the factors that affect these products, and the effects that these products have, we will continue to always look 100 steps ahead.
