About Us > Shintech Headquarters

Our small corporate headquarters is the central hub for Sales and Marketing Management and Export Management.  When Shintech became a wholly owned subsidiary of Shin-Etsu, Late Chairman Kanagawa took full authority for the management of the subsidiary.  It is his philosophy that began with a lean team, then to hire and buy local.  He also empowered every worker to take responsibility for their work area.  The local managers understand the culture of their community and their state.  


Mr. Saitoh became president of Shin-Etsu in 2016.
