Pursuing the possibilities of polymers, we will contribute to a future of better mobility and living
Toyoda Gosei was founded in 1949, and over more than 70 years has provided high functioning, high quality products and services based on synthetic rubber and plastics and associated mixing technology. This is done in conjunction with various stakeholders involved in development, engineering, procurement, production and sales. Our company name includes the word “gosei” (“synthesis”) from a philosophy of creating new things using our main materials, and that mindset has continued today.
The automotive industry is currently going through a period of huge transformation with advances in electrification, autonomous driving and other areas. As management, we must steer a very difficult course in opaque and uncertain circumstances where the future is difficult to predict, amid changing human values, deepening environmental and social problems and geopolitical risks. Our company creed is “Boundless Creativity and Social Contribution” and with this as our cornerstone we will adapt greatly and take on challenges while continuing to value the polymer-based assets in many forms that have been built up by our predecessors.
These cultivated assets are not limited to the fields of technology, products, control technology and the like, but also include our deeply rooted corporate culture.
Like the hexagonal benzene molecule that symbolizes our company, various molecules (= individuals) come together and are linked organically. Chemical reactions of ideas and creativity occur and an organization is structured that changes flexibly according to the environment. We also have ties with other organizations (all stakeholders) and grow expansively.
To further develop this kind of culture, we will adapt to whatever changes occur in the business environment and take these changes as opportunities. We want people to think, “Toyoda Gosei is fascinating, don’t you think?” and “They will surely do something good for us.”
The Toyoda Gosei Group harnesses the power of 40,000 employees in 61 Group companies in 16 countries and regions under our slogan of “One Team, One TG.” We have and will continue to deliver satisfaction to customers in the form of safety, comfort, well-being, the environment and decarbonization to enrich transportation and people’s lives.

We shall each strive to uphold this TG Spirit under the banner of “One Team, One TG.”
Think from the customer’s perspective
How can we help customers get what they want?
Aim high, be resolute in the face of difficulties
We will aim high, set ambitious goals and work relentlessly toward achieving them no matter what the difficulties may be.
Be responsible and proactive
Each and every TG employee is encouraged to feel a sense of ownership for the products that leave our doors.
Never be satisfied; improvement never ends
Using the approaches of genchi-genbutsu (go and see) and genjitsu (activities based on the actual situation) and asking why five times, we will constantly strive to bring our operations and products to the next highest level.
Respect for individuals and their perspectives
We will maintain respect for the individuality and perspectives of each person, be humble in our dealings with others regardless of nationality, gender, or rank, and always try to learn from each other.
Help each other, grow as a team
We will combine our strengths within teams, between departments, and between Toyoda Gosei Group companies to make One TG a reality.
