NICHIAS Corporation was founded in 1896 in Japan as a pioneer in thermal insulation materials. For more than a century, NICHIAS has achieved growth by delivering products and services backed by its Insulation and Protection technologies to a broad range of industrial sectors. One such success story is their insulation made of rock wool. In 1938, they became the first in Japan to successfully mass produce this insulation, and since then their products have been used as an energy efficient material in a diverse array of fields, from factories to houses, thanks to approximately 80 years of continual innovation.
