As the pioneering soft capsule manufacturer in Japan, our company has maintained and developed an integrated production system since its inauguration in 1939.
Centered on soft capsules for drugs, we have continuously established and improved manufacturing technology and product quality.
We will endeavor to further improve our accumulated technology and product quality with high aspirations and humbleness in order to meet the diversifying needs of customers, so that we don’t fall into a reputation that Fuji Capsule is an old soft capsule manufacturing company merely with a long history.
In the 21st century, our most important slogan is to become a trusted company that constantly creates new technology and advanced quality.
Even for products not applied for medical use, we maintain the quality control similar to that for drugs, taking advantage of our know-how accumulated over years of experience in manufacturing drugs from the beginning. To always provide customers with the highest quality products, we put all our efforts into continuously improving our systems.
I believe that the various technology and quality control systems developed in our company are all highly regarded and would like to give a special thank you to our loyal longtime customers for their cooperation.
Envisaging the future together with our customers, all the employees of Fuji Capsule will commit themselves in making every possible effort towards creating products of dreams. We greatly appreciate your further support and guidance.
