Ueno Fine Chemicals Industry, Ltd. established its first research center in 1962, in the city of Itami, Hyogo, Japan. This facility was further developed into a general research center in October 1966.
To mark its 80th anniversary, the company built a new research center in the city of Sanda, Hyogo, in May 1999, and transferred all chemicals R&D functions to this new, “green” location.
Working on R&D of the Ueno process, discovery of compounds using the process, and development of new applications for these compounds, the Ueno Institute for Chemical Science plays a core role in developing technologies for Ueno Fine Chemicals, an R&D-oriented company, under its basic R&D policy of challenging and exploring the unknown and making social contributions.
