In the Performance Chemicals Business Unit, we develop businesses that serve as bridges between growth industries that are peripheral to the chemical industry. Our main areas of focus are agricultural chemicals, performance materials, and advanced materials. When appropriate, we form strategic alliances with partners to build businesses. We also seek to develop new businesses that enable us to leverage our chemical business strengths.
The chemical industry effectively uses finite resources to supply all industries with increasingly sophisticated raw materials. Using chemicals as a gateway, the Performance Chemical Business Unit aims to support a stable supply of safe foods, help achieve a sustainable society, and contribute to a bountiful standard of living by developing businesses in a wide range of growth industries.
In the agricultural chemical area, we aim to provide solutions for meeting the projected steady increase in global food demand. Encompassing the acquisition of natural resource-based raw materials for fertilizers such as phosphorus ore as well as manufacture and sales, our focuses in this area include an agricultural chemicals business in Europe (Mitsui AgriScience International S.A./N.V., MASI), fertilizer sales in Japan, sophisticated and integrated global distribution of sulphur, ammonia manufacturing in Indonesia (P.T. Kaltim Pasifik Amoniak, KPA), and the manufacture and sales of feed additives based in U.S.A. (Novus International, Inc.). In the performance and advanced materials areas, as a total solution provider for key materials business underpinning key manufacturing industries, we provide global distribution of plastics and inorganic materials. And in the electronics industry, among other services, we provide procurement logistic service solutions to electronics component manufacturers.
