Company Information from ICIS

Ube is a Japanese producer of chemicals, polymers, construction materials and metal products with the business split into five segments: chemicals and plastics, specialty chemicals and products, cement and construction materials, machinery and metal products, and energy and environment.

Ube has reassessed its business portfolio to identify core platform businesses that are positioned to generate stable profits and cash flows, and strategic growth businesses with high potential for profits. Core platform businesses will “anchor” the business, while strategic growth businesses will drive sustainable growth that is equally balanced across the company.
