About us

Who are we

We produce aramid

Teijin Aramid produces synthetic fibers that are stronger than steel. The lightweight, heat-resistant properties of aramid ensure the numerous products where our aramid is incorporated are safer, stronger, and more sustainable. Aramid is used in many applications such as car tires, hockey sticks, bridges, personal protective clothing, and the suits of the Formula-E Envision Racing team. At our company, we respect and value your unique contribution and fully support diversity and inclusion.


We create a culture of equality where every employee feels at home.


We embrace all differences as strengths and encourage an inclusive culture of collaboration.


We value and recognize each employee's unique contributions, promoting their growth and success.


We recognize each other's differences and treat each other with respect.


"Diversity and inclusion are the driving force for innovation. To strengthen our business activities globally and accelerate innovation, it is essential to make full use of the abilities of diverse human resources who differ in race, religion, gender, or cultural background.”
