Shin-Etsu Group Original Calendar 2018


~Alongside the richness of nature~

The Shin-Etsu Group’s aim is to “contribute to the Earth’s future.”
One of our main products is rare earth magnets. They play an important role in energy-saving as one of the most essential components in the production of motors used in hybrid and electric vehicles, air conditioners, wind power generation, and other applications. Rare earth magnets are also used in industrial robots, which contribute to automation and achieve higher productivity of manufacturing. We are the only manufacturer in the world that handles the entire magnet production process, from the separation and refinement of rare earth materials, to the casting of magnets. We also promote the recycling of rare earth elements in order to more effectively utilize this limited resource.
We have our production and sales bases in nine countries including Japan, Asia, Europe, and the U.S., and they provide a stable supply of high-quality products to the world. We are currently working to expand our production capacities in Vietnam.
In this calendar, we introduce six of the locations in which our rare earth magnets are produced – Fukui Prefecture in Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, China and Vietnam – to highlight the beautiful natural landscapes those locations offer.
