Message from President

Through Monozukuri, we will create new values for customers and society.

Our history dates back to 1958 when our founder Kazuo Asano founded Tohkai Boshoku Co. Ltd. in Ogaki-City, Gifu Prefecture. Though Tohkai Boshoku was a hair interlining manufacturer, Tohkai Boshoku established the foundation with the response of customer's first and strength of development capability based on a challenging spirit, and in 1967 company built a factory at the current headquarters.

The turning point came around this time. It is the second generation president Shigeo Asano who visited Europe and encountered fusible interlining. "The era of fusible interlining will come in the future." Based on such confidence, the company launched our own brand "Thermofix®", fusible interlining with the technology introduction from Kufner, Germany.

After that, while increasing the product variation of the fusible interlining responding to the evolution of apparel industry, we also developed an approach to find new applications and possibilities in the adhesive technologies that we have cultivated as our own. We are expanding our business fields to various fields including the automobile industry. In addition, we have responded promptly to the rapidly advancing globalization and have also expanded widely overseas.

TOHKAI THERMO considers Monozukuri is to make the world trend and customers' needs faster and better than anywhere else. This attitude is still being handed down; a "passion for challenging new business" is our basic DNA.

We will continue to pursue Monozukuri manufacturing just like Tohkai Thermo, and we would like to contribute to the development of customer business and the creation of a rich society.

We appreciate your continued guidance and support.

Keiichi Asano / President of TOHKAI THERMO
