As the Sunstar Group has grown and developed through the decades, its business structure has evolved into four unique business fields.
Striving for breakthroughs in oral care together with the world's leading dental and medical experts
Water and food nurture our lives. The healthy condition of our mouths — which is the entry point for these essentials of life — is very closely associated with the health of our entire bodies.
Sunstar was among the first companies to become an advocate of the new thinking about the integral relationship between the health of the mouth and health of the whole body.
Sunstar is a world leader in pursuing research in cooperation with both dental and medical experts around the world on the direct and indirect effects that chronic infection in the mouth has on the whole body. The new research in this field has clearly shown how oral health is potentially related to the development of heart disease and other systemic health conditions.
Sunstar develops unique products and supports dentistry activities by supplying high-quality products and useful information, and we are also focusing on carrying out educational programs designed to make everyone more deeply aware of the importance of oral health.
Pursuing the people-friendly, environment-friendly values of safety and comfort
Sunstar, which started out as a manufacturer of rubber glue, has developed into a leading manufacturer of sealants, adhesives and coating agents. The Sunstar Group has been making great efforts with regard to protecting the environment, and before other companies, Sunstar has developed packaging that contributes to reducing industrial waste during construction and also has introduced products that help people cope with “sick-house syndrome.” Furthermore, Sunstar has advanced into the amenity business area to offer products that contribute to making daily life safer, more pleasurable, cleaner, more comfortable and healthier. We continue to offer advanced solutions to create healthy living environments.
Holistically strengthening the natural healing power of the body
What lies at the root of all Sunstar products, including food, skin care, and hair care products, is Sunstar's philosophy that strives to heighten the natural healing power that the body itself innately has.
Starting with R&D designed to make use of the power of nature, such as the development of a new whitening agent derived from safflowers, Sunstar works together with the world's foremost research organizations on basic research that will create new holistic fields, as it pursues the development and commercialization of the next generation of health and beauty products.
Providing high-value-added motorcycle parts and advanced adhesive agents for the automotive and electronics industries
Motorcycle sprockets and disc brakes are component parts that control the most important functions of the safe “driving/braking” of a motorcycle, that is, the ability to run and stop according to the intention of the rider. Today, Sunstar supplies these products not only to Japanese makers, but also to all the world's major makers. Sunstar has grown to be the leading world company in this product area, holding an overwhelming global market share.
At the same time, Sunstar has developed adhesive agents that meet the application needs for all production processes of automobiles and adhesives and underfill materials for electronic devices, including for digital appliances and for the semiconductor manufacturing process. In the future as well, we will continue to offer high-value-added products that lead to technical advances by sensitively and speedily anticipating the needs of various industries.
