Abrasives Yield High Margins for Fujibo-Ehime

Fujibo-Ehime performs from the production of nonwovens, urethane impregnation and molding processing and finishes up to discoidal final products and sells them. The result are high value added products that require extensive manufacturing technology, and this has propelled sales of the business beyond ¥8 billion, despite the small production scale.
