FJ Composites was established in 2002 as a venture company specializing in the manufacturing of electronic materials using composite materials. Since then, we have successfully handled a wide range of materials, including metals, carbon, ceramics, and resins, using our unique technology to manufacture a diverse array of composite materials.
For over 20 years, we have been dedicated to contributing to an eco-friendly and sustainable world through our innovative products.
FJ Composite was established on February 5, 2002, in Fuji City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.
Our goal is to apply composite material products to the electronics and semiconductor markets, where Japan excels.
To survive in a market where we are competing with major companies, we develop proprietary technologies and manufacture products that excel in both performance and price.
In 2015, we built our factory in Chitose City, Hokkaido, and moved to this new location.
A second plant was completed in 2019, and a third plant in 2022 adjacent to the first. The number of employees has increased from 5 at the time of the relocation to over 30. (As of January 2023)
Our products are used in next-generation products such as electrical components for electric vehicles (EVs) and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs), electrode materials for large storage batteries, and heat sinks for 5G communication devices.
More than 80% of our shipments are to overseas customers.
We are able to fulfil our dream of establishing a world-class business in our hometown of Hokkaido and contributing to the local community.
We will continue to challenge new technologies, and create products that will open up a new era for our company.
We look forward to your continued support.

About FJ Composite
Gathering of Only One and Number One Technology
From word-of-mouth to all over the world
FJ Composite does not have a sales department or sales quota as a management policy.
Our sales style is to listen to our customers’ problems and wishes and solve them, rather than to sell to them, and we have expanded our recognition in the industry only by word-of-mouth.
Today, we manufacture products that are indispensable for cutting-edge technologies, such as telecommunications equipment and electric vehicles, and our overseas sales now account for 80% of our total sales.
Offering technologies that have been refined for more than 20 years.
FJ Composite’s strength lies in our ability to create “new technology” by connecting the technologies we have been developing for over 20 years.
Solving problems is not always easy, but if you have any “problems or wants”, contact us first.
We have many products and technologies that are not listed on our website. Please let us help you solve your problems.
We look forward to working together to create the world through technology.
These are the words of Dr Clark, the founder of Hokkaido University.
“Boys, be ambitious!” may be a more famous saying, but when the Sapporo Agricultural College (now Hokkaido University) was about to establish its school regulations, the school’s president said, “There is no need for school rules; a single phrase, ‘Be Gentleman,’ is sufficient.
I believe the world will be richer with free ideas if everyone is a gentleman daily, even though rules and punishments are becoming stricter and stricter in today’s society.
Sales that listen to and solve customers’ problems and wishes
We do not have a large sales department, nor do we have a sales quota.
We have a technical sales style of “making what the customer wants,” so we have many products and technologies that are not disclosed on our website.
Based on the belief that if you make good products, demand will naturally gather, we have been passionately manufacturing products for more than 20 years since our establishment and have increased our recognition in the industry by word of mouth.
We place great importance on respecting our subcontractors.
Often our suppliers tend to be subcontractors, but we hope for the development of the industry as a whole by realizing a mutually beneficial relationship.

With well-developed railroads and highways, the city is easily accessible from all parts of Japan and Hokkaido.
Lake Shikotsu, a beautiful blue lake, is located in the western part of the city, where visitors can enjoy activities such as hot springs, camping, and diving. Along the Chitose River, which flows out of Lake Shikotsu, there is one of the largest freshwater fish aquariums in Japan, “Chitose Aquarium, Home of Salmon”, where you can watch salmon migrating up the Chitose River. In the eastern part of the city, there is a peaceful rural landscape with farms and ranches where visitors can experience various activities.
