I am Mugi Umemoto, the President and third-generation owner of Umemoto Material Company in Tokyo, Japan. We have been supplying raw materials for the road paving industry, construction waterproofing industry, and ink industry for more than 70 years.
Japan, as an island country, has a very unique culture, which must be taken into consideration when doing business with local companies. One might say that Japanese businesses tend to be slow, cautious, and conservative. We at Umemoto Material are trying to change this culture by working with our suppliers in the US and other countries on the basis of trust and many years of experience. This allows us to offer to our customers (1) stable quality, (2) stable prices, and (3) stable supply.
We welcome new partners and will be happy to talk to you about importing any materials for the following industries.
We are always looking for alternative suppliers and will be happy to hear from you regarding the following raw materials:
- Carbon black
- Rosin phenolic resin
- Aroma-free solvents
- Blown asphalt
- Naphthenic asphalt
- Naphthenic base oil
