About Ariake Materials

It is the origin of our company to have started the raw materials research at Mitsui Mining Tagawa branch in 1979. Over the past 30 years, we have been seriously responding to diverse demands/seeds of the market and tackling the materials development, production and sales. What underlies there is “Human power” of each staff and “Materials power” created by the staff.
Making the most of these two big powers, we continue to assist customer’s problem resolution.
