Reasons for setting up this business

In the wake of the global recession triggered by the Lehman Brothers crisis in 2008, and the fire at our own plant in 2010, we found ourselves in a difficult position from a business standpoint. While working to overcome difficulties such as these, we really came to appreciate the importance of “going back to the beginning.” That’s what made up our minds to focus on the surface treatment industry, including materials such as polyurethane, fluorine and nylon. That decision proved to be successful, and enabled us to stabilize our business. It would be no exaggeration to say that the UNICS Corporation is what it is today because of the changes we made at that time.

Thoughts on the surface treatment and coating business

In industry, various different machines and parts need to be surface treated, to suit individual conditions. Conventional coatings however all had certain advantages and disadvantages. We couldn’t find any products that met the necessary requirements. We also felt that increasing operating efficiency on the shop floor would help to energize the coating industry as a whole. We stopped and thought about what we could achieve, and the result was that we came up with UNIRETHANE, a new and improved urethane coating developed uniquely by UNICS.

Outlook for the future

We are constantly working to improve customer satisfaction here at UNICS, based on our philosophy that “employee satisfaction starts with customer satisfaction.” We are committed to research and development too, so that we can cater to needs and identify new applications across an even wider range of industries, rather than standing still. With understanding and support from countless people, including our customers, partners, environmental support organizations and financial institutions, we are determined to bring about innovation in the coating industry in the future. We will continue to make every effort to keep on growing as a company, in order to achieve that goal.

Starting from as little as one prototype

“Might you be able to surface coat something like this…?” These are the sort of inquiries we relish. We have continued to respond to requests from different industries, and under various different conditions. We offer expertise in coating, irrespective of size or shape. If you can bring us a sample, we will come up with the best possible solution to meet your needs. Our services start from as little as one prototype. We handle everything through to mass production too, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
