Shin-Etsu Group Original Calendar 2017
~Coexisting With Water~
The 2017 Shin-Etsu Group calendar is based on the themes of “silicone” and “water.”
The Shin-Etsu Group was the first in Japan to successfully commercialize silicone in 1953. Since then, we have developed advanced technological strength and carried out diligent research and development to meet a great variety of requests from many different customers. As a result, we currently offer more than 5,000 products and have won a share that exceeds 50% in Japan. We are also carrying out ambitious business in countries overseas and have opened production and sales bases in 11 countries including Asia, Europe, and the United States. In this way, we have earned the trust of customers around the world.
Together with this global business, the Group is constantly working to conserve resources and reduce our environmental burden. We make efforts to harmonize with the global environment and contribute to the future.
Water is an important global resource and a symbol of the rich nature that is the source of life. This calendar features bodies of water from six regions around the world where we have Group silicone business bases: Gunma Prefecture, the Netherlands, Thailand, the United States and China, as well as Australia, which is a production base for silicon metal, a raw material of silicone.
