Nitto's Original Business Models

Creating Values Only the Nitto Group Can - Age-old Strengths and the Business Model that Make it Possible

On top of the fundamental strengths of corporate culture and core technological prowess based on polymer synthesis and processing technologies that have been honed over the years, the Nitto Group is privileged to have diverse business domains and competitive intellectual property rights that result from said fundamental strengths, as well as a valuable customer base that covers a wide spectrum of industrial sectors. For us to achieve sustainable growth and keep increasing our corporate value over the long term, we must make constant efforts to broaden our business domains, and it is “Sanshin Activities (three “new” activities)” and “Niche Top Strategy” - two of the Nitto Group’s original business models - that will make this possible.

Sanshin Activities

Finding "new" applications fro existing products and the adding new technologies to them or using new technologies to develop "new" products and the expanding their applications, thereby creating "new" demand - Literally translated as "three new activities," Sanshin Activities is Nitto Group's proprietary marketing approach which we have diligently followed for more than 50 years by repeating the cycle of the three "news" for continued progress.
