The Osaka Research & Development Center was established to serve as the head R&D facility for specialty materials at Ube Industries.
The facility is designed to realize a new culture for R&D, with features that facilitate inter-departmental communication among researchers. The center is designed for the comprehensive pursuit of research, development, production technology, marketing, and production in tandem with the Sakai Factory, as well as serving as a center for intellectual property and analysis.
The ultimate aim of the center is to develop new businesses realized through the collected knowledge of its human assets, by focusing on creating new materials that arise from communication among engineers. The center will leverage its location in the Kansai region to facilitate collaboration with companies and universities.
