Bigger yet thinner, lighter yet tougher, weatherproof and shockproof, today’s mobile phones, tablets and other consumer electronics are advancing faster than ever.
What makes these devices technological marvels are often invisible to consumers – but innovators behind them, such as Teraoka Seisakusho, are increasingly taking the spotlight with highly sophisticated and value-added products.
From electronics to automotive, construction and packaging, Teraoka provides specialised adhesive tapes to nearly all industry leaders and major original equipment manufacturers. Keeping electronic parts in place, insulating power and blocking electromagnetic waves, the general adhesive tape maker’s products have also evolved to include heat-resistant, shock-absorbent and ultrathin adhesive tapes – empowering device makers with limitless possibilities.
“Feature-packed, nearly unbreakable devices have become not only possible but also mainstream, and we take pride in helping make that possible,” says Kenichi Tsuji, senior managing director. “Vibrant industries require equally dynamic innovators who can keep up.”
Being a midsize Japanese adhesive tape-devoted company gives Teraoka access to cutting-edge, exceptional technologies and the ability to quickly react with breakthrough products. Listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, it pursues innovation in two forms: evolution and revolution.
“Evolution keeps us aligned with the trends; revolution empowers us to become a game-changer,” Tsuji says.
To mark its 100th anniversary in 2021, Teraoka envisions a broader overseas presence particularly in Asia, which is becoming an important market for hi-tech and value-added products. It supports clients in the region through subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai, a branch in Seoul and a representative office in Taipei. It also built a factory in Indonesia, which produces adhesive tapes for packaging, protection and electronics to complement its three manufacturing plants in Japan.
“The next step is to increase our products’ applications and market share in other industries such as automotive,” Tsuji says. “We welcome local distributors and partners throughout Asia. We also look forward to merger and acquisition opportunities that can help us hit the ground running.”
