Abrasives Yield High Margins for Fujibo-Ehime

August 9, 2007

Sales top ¥8 billion, despite low volumes.

Fujibo-Ehime has seen increasing demand for its abrasive nonwovens. These abrasives are polishing pads made of nonwovens impregnated with polyurethane and used for the abrasion of silicon wafers or hard disks. 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.
