Based on the technical ability, the company has developed mainly the techniques of machining special thin film glass. As a comprehensive fine glass manufacturer in the medical and physicochemical fields, it has established the status as the leading manufacturer of cover glass and glass slides for microscopy in Japan and, in addition, extended its activities to the biological field to contribute toward the world’s medical innovation. Moreover, in the optical and electronic material fields, it has expanded the business field through its integrated system of production from molten glass to finished product utilizing its precision machining techniques.
