Founded in 1922, the Asahi Kasei Group is a diversified manufacturer centered on chemistry. Throughout over nine decades of growth, we have continued to proactively diversify and adapt our operating portfolio to changes in the economy, changes in society, and changes in the environment. The history of the Asahi Kasei Group is rooted in Japan’s first ammonia production by chemical synthesis, using hydroelectric power, which formed the basis for our synthetic chemistry and chemical fibers businesses. We now contribute to life and living for people around the world through our operations in the three business sectors of Material consisting of fibers, chemicals, and electronics businesses; Homes consisting of homes and construction materials businesses; and Health Care consisting of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and acute critical care businesses.

As society all around the world continues to change dramatically, we face a wide variety of challenges including issues of resources, energy, and the environment, the continuing evolution of information technology, greater general awareness for health and safety issues, and aging and declining populations in Japan. The products, technologies, and services of the Asahi Kasei Group can create new value that helps society overcome such challenges by contributing to a clean environment, to clean energy, and to health, comfort, peace of mind, and longevity. In the Material sector we have environmentally friendly and original products with high added value, in the Homes sector we are making innovative lifestyle proposals that anticipate changing needs, and in the Health Care sector we are focusing on unmet medical needs, to mention just a few examples.

With the start of our new strategic management initiative in fiscal 2016, the Asahi Kasei Group transitioned to an operating holding company configuration in order to execute our strategy and obtain greater synergy among our diverse operations. Under the new configuration we will leverage the broad-ranging businesses and multifaceted human resources gained across our history of diversification to actively innovate through our products, technologies, and services. By fulfilling our Group Slogan of “Creating for Tomorrow” with a firm presence for our high-earnings businesses, we will advance as a reliable and dependable enterprise that meets the expectations of our stakeholders.

Busy work at times. Need to pay more. Can he stressful at times. Management is overall understanding. Coworkers are something different. Not a place I would retire from.

Production Worker in Athens, AL
on October 25, 2022

This place is run so bad. Management has no idea what they are doing everything is thrown into production workers you might as well be HR, Maintenance, Production and a wearhouse worker all rolled into one. They don’t care about safety once so ever.

Laboratory Technician in Fowlerville, MI
on July 12, 2022

Usually a pretty nice work load to keep you busy, overtime is up to you and VERY encouraged. The hours are awesome for days. 7am to 3pm. I just wish that the culture had a little more personality, and that the laboratory was not in the middle of a building. I wanna see outside. Its kinda dungeon like. People are really cool, and love to show the ropes. Very patient and comfy.

This workplace continues to drive away experienced and senior employees with terrible management and toxic work environment. Company culture and too many managers with no employee advocates.
