Value Creation Model

AICA’s Value Creation Model

The source of AICA’s Value Creation Model lies in our development capabilities that use core technologies based on chemistry and design, domestic and overseas sales network and customer base, capabilities in the solution of social issues developed through dialogue with stakeholders, range of high-quality products and brand value generated from those capabilities, excellent human assets, and a healthy financial base. We resolve social issues through our business activities by creating synergies between the Chemical Products Business and Laminates & Building Materials Business, and continuing the cycle of improving and expanding these strengths. Guided by a philosophy of kyosei that places importance on dialogue with stakeholders, AICA creates new value and contributes to society through continuous innovation.

AICA’s Strengths Supporting Value Creation

AICA’s strengths lie in our extensive product range that leverages the advantages in chemistry and design, as well as a solid customer base which supports that product range, overseas business bases, brand value, excellent human assets, the trust of society backed by high quality and environmental conservation, and a healthy financial base. We will improve our corporate sustainability by emphasizing dialogue with stakeholders and continuing to enhance these strengths.

Using the power of chemistry and design to resolve social issues

AICA’s most distinctive feature is our ability to respond to social issues and needs by delivering unique products through synergies between performance created by our core technologies: synthetic chemistry technologies and resin design technologies, and design in the broader sense, including ease of use and communication as well as beauty of color and pattern.
