Carbon has been a part of our life since ancient times. The benefits of carbon have never been far away from humans, making our lives more plentiful and comfortable. In 1974, we were the first company in Japan to successfully develop isotropic graphite, and thereafter rapidly expanding its possibilities. Isotropic graphite became a crucial material of state-of-the-art technologies in industries such as semi-conductors and aerospace. Currently, this material is being used in a wide range of applications over an ever-increasing number of fields. Toyo Tanso is dedicated to unlocking the unlimited potential of carbon and aims to ensure that the beneficial relationship between people and carbon is one that lasts forever.
