The KOMATSU brand was created with craftsmanship and keen sensibility.At Komatsu Matere, we aim to be a leading fabric manufacturer that turns state-of-the-art technologies into products on its own and delivers them to customers.
We continue to create and deliver advanced fabrics that are fresh and unique and impress markets all over the world. We develop functional films by fully applying the unique technologies we have developed through dyeing. By using these films, we plan and manufacture film fabrics and other products and sell them in markets worldwide. We thus strengthen our brand identity and direct our activities to the creation of new markets.
At the core of these activities is the establishment of the KOMATSU brand, a creative brand that combines our sensibility, advanced technologies, and craftsmanship. We will continue pursuing people’s excitement from both tangible and intangible perspectives through the concerted efforts of the entire Komatsu Matere Group by developing nanotechnologies, machinery and equipment, chemicals, and other products ourselves, further improving the craftsmanship we have developed over many years, and developing new markets.
