Toshihiro Takaoka, Representative Director and President

ASTOM Corporation was established in 1995 as a joint venture company between Tokuyama Corporation and Asahi Kasei Corporation to manufacture hydrocarbon-based ion exchange membranes. In 2004, ASTOM was developed into a general operating company by consolidating the two companies’ functions to develop, manufacture, and sell ion exchange membranes, electrodialysis equipment, and related systems. I am the company’s fifth president.

Based on a core technology that selectively and efficiently separates and concentrates ionic substances in solution using electric energy, our ion exchange membrane and electrodialysis equipment technologies are regarded as essential for ion control processes by numerous customers across many fields, including salt production by seawater concentration, drinking water production, desalination and purification of food and pharmaceutical intermediates, recovery of valuable substances, and waste liquid treatment.

Today, our management pursues the goal of being a leading global company in ion exchange technology with an established presence around the world. We are committed to providing high quality products and services that help bring solutions to our customers through capitalizing on our technological and human resources, and by taking on new challenges.

We will work as one to unleash the potential of ion exchange technologies to meet the broad social needs of the global environment, energy, health, and safety that contribute to the SDGs, and ask for your continuing guidance and assistance in these efforts.
