The business focus of the FOD Business Group of T. Chatani & Co, Ltd. is precision laminating and associated business such as special film processing. These technologies are used mainly for display screens used in vehicles, ranging from compact sized LCD displays to ultra-large sized displays of up to 98 inches. In December 2019 we established Chatani Opto Electronics Science and Technology (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. in the city of Suzhou in Jiangsu Province, People’s Republic of China, and after a short run-in period of one year, the company is now in full operation.
Chatani Opto Electronics Science and Technology (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. is a company which is promoting Japanese technological excellence in the Asian region. It is doing this with the technological support of the world’s leading technological companies in the field of precision laminating processing which is built on the manufacturing control and quality control expertise of the SBC Business Group of T. Chatani & Co., Ltd. in the field of backlighting and with the full cooperation of K-Tronics (Suzhou) Technology Co., Ltd., part of the BOE Technology Group which is the largest manufacturer of LCD panels in China.
Suzhou is famous as the capital of the province of Wu, one of the “Three Kingdoms” in ancient Chinese history, and is the site of many historical buildings.
It is also known as the “Venice of the East” because it is enveloped both physically and historically by the network of canals which run throughout the city.
Historically the main industries were eel and soft-shelled turtle farming and silk production, but in recent years it has developed considerably to become the sixth-largest industrial city in the People’s Republic of China.
In Suzhou we will be developing our business of precision laminating of display components such as touch panels and LCD displays, and in the future we hope to expand the scope of our prevision laminating business to encompass other fields as well.
