Message from the PresidentMESSAGE

In 1974, GS KASEI KOGYO Co., Ltd., the predecessor of our company, was established as a member of the Japan Storage Battery Group, and the following year in 1975, we began producing separators for lead-acid batteries.
Lead-acid battery has highly reliability and is used in a variety of fields around the world today, including automobiles, motorcycles, forklifts, and emergency power sources.
Separator, which greatly affect the performance of lead-acid batteries, is required to have advanced life characteristics, acid resistance, and electrical properties.
Since our founding, we have worked to improve the performance and quality of separators, and have earned the trust of battery manufacturers in response to their strict requirements.
Our separators are used by battery manufacturers both in Japan and overseas.
In addition, we have developed humidifying materials and functional sheets for air conditioners by leveraging our manufacturing technology for lead-acid battery separators that we have built up over many years, and have also begun producing glass tube for lead-acid battery.
In 2021, we changed our company name to the current "GS Yuasa Chemical Co., Ltd." based on the brand identity of the GS Yuasa Group.
In accordance with the GS Yuasa Group's corporate philosophy of “committing to people, society, and the global environment through the ‘Innovation and Growth’ of our employees and business entities,” GS Yuasa Chemical will continue to study its safe and secure manufacturing, create useful new products for the world, and pursue increased customer satisfaction.
