About

We aim to be the only one company that manufactures FPCs using advanced technologies, which are said to be "only Yamashita Materials can manufacture".

Greeting

On June 15, 2020, Yamashita Materials celebrated the 55th anniversary of its founding. 2020 was expected to be a year of many bright spots in Japan with the hosting of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but unfortunately, the Corona disaster, a situation we have never experienced before, hit. However, unfortunately, the Corona disaster, a situation we had never experienced before, forced many changes in society, and the business environment changed at a tremendous pace.
Under these circumstances, we will continue to respond to changes in the business environment with agility and flexibility in order to continue to be a good partner to our customers, supporting the electronics industry that continues to evolve and enrich society.
We will never say “no” to a challenge, no matter how difficult. We will never stop making efforts and taking on challenges every day, and we will realize the “shape” that developers want to create with our craftsmanship, management technology, and speed.
Yamashita Materials will continue to be a manufacturer that provides the world’s best FPCs.
