It also provides services and solutions to customers in the health care, mobility, information and communications technology and basic and green materials industries, with more than 50 affiliates across the Asia-Pacific region.
Located in The Kendall at Singapore Science Park II, Mitsui Chemicals Singapore R&D Centre Pte. Ltd. was established in 2011. The company’s initial collaborations with Singaporean entities began with Singapore’s A-STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research). The center creates advanced technology innovations and provides technical services to partners and customers in Singapore and across the region.
“We, the Mitsui Chemicals group, are proud to have contributed to the development of Singapore over the years and continue to actively engage with our partners and deliver solutions across key industries,” said Hiromu Kaneyoshi, managing director of Mitsui Chemicals Singapore R&D Centre.
The center works closely with Mitsui Chemical’s affiliated companies in Singapore and is reaching out to customers there and across the region to create and strengthen business partnerships. The center is actively involved in not only scientific research and cutting-edge technology development, but also market research and new business development.
“Singapore is a promising location for companies establishing new businesses,” Kaneyoshi said.
“The Singaporean economy is a good test bed for innovation and offers a dynamic environment for new business creation. We have established strong partnerships with Nanyang Technological University and Singapore University of Technology and Design as we want to support the future growth of Singapore while contributing to the development of the next generation.”
“The Singaporean government is very supportive of Japanese companies, and investments from the Japan side continue to be made across a range of industries. Our investments in Singapore extend beyond our affiliated companies and we will remain a strong partner for Singapore, today, and in the future.”
