Message from Chief Representative
for Americas

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website for the Toray Group companies in the United States.

It has been more than half a century since the Toray Group opened its New York office, in 1957. Today we own 15 manufacturing sites that specialize in the production of fibers and textiles, resin, film, carbon fiber and advanced composite materials, water treatment materials, and composite manufacturing equipment. We also conduct research and development for carbon composites and films and manage six sales offices. In July 2018 we launched the Toray Advanced Composite business, headquartered in Morgan Hill, California; it manufactures thermoset prepregs and molding compounds. This year we will ramp up production at our Toray Composite Materials America plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Business growth and corporate social responsibility (CSR) have always been fundamental to Toray, and we will continue to be mindful of our commitment to sustainability while we grow our businesses in the United States. Guided by our philosophy of “contributing to society through the creation of new value with innovative ideas, technologies, and products,” we have established our strong corporate ethics, supported safety with enhanced accident-prevention procedures, respected the environment, and made positive contributions to the social fabric of the communities in which we operate.

Our aim is to continue to excel as a corporation that delivers exceptional value to every one of its stakeholders in the United States. I hope this website will enrich your understanding of the Toray Group and the leading-edge products and services it provides.
