Corporate philosophy

In January 1999, AMC Technology launched research and development on formaldehyde removal both to help improve the environment and to serve society by promoting health in modest ways, in keeping with the company creeds - "Enriching life" and "Creating comfortable lifestyles". With subsequent guidance and assistance from the Kanagawa Industrial Technology Center, D Paint, and K Chemicals, Fomtorl was launched to coincide with growing regulation of formaldehyde emissions in the June 2003 revisions of the Building Standards Law.
Since then, we have introduced other reduction and elimination technologies in the form of alkyd resins, natural coatings, melamine-containing baking coatings, and melamine-based adhesives, drawing on technical guidance from users. The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has also demonstrated high regard for and keen interest in our technologies.
As we move into the future, the goal of AMC Technology is to apply all its resources to continue to refine and develop such technologies. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
