Ariake Materials - President's Message

July 1, 2009


Notification of our company name change.


I am pleased to inform you that our company name was changed from Mitsui-MMC to “Ariake Materials Co., Ltd.” on April 1, 2009 to make a new start hereafter.
The word, Ariake, means dawn in Japanese and the Ariake Sea area is where our main plant is located. As our primary mission has been to assist our customers in finding solution from Materials viewpoint, we named Ariake Materials Co., Ltd .
We started ceramics research & development as a section of Mitsui Mining Co., Ltd. (current NIPPON COKE&ENGINEERING CO., LTD.) in 1979 and spun off as a subsidiary company in 1993. We, as an integrated manufacturer from raw materials production to final machining, have been continuously, for more than 30 years since the start, supplying newly developed raw materials & machined products in accordance with our customer’s requirement and, at the same time, have been growing thanks to our customer’s support and guidance.
As making the new start, we are once again committed to become the company capable of contributing to society with the driving force of “Human power” of each employee and “Materials power” generated by the human.
I would like to ask for your continuous patronage and support in the years to come.


Toshio Hamasaki
