About Us

Sumitomo Chemical was established in 1913 to manufacture fertilizers from sulphur dioxide emitted from smelting operations at the Besshi copper mine in Niihama, Ehime Prefecture, with the aim of solving environmental problems caused by emissions.

“We must not merely seek business profits but must contribute broadly to society through our business activities.”

Sumitomo Chemical Company, founded with the dual goals of eliminating pollution and helping increase crop yields, has upheld this founding principle as it has evolved in keeping with the changing times.

Sumitomo Chemical Singapore (SCS) is a subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical Group, established in 1996, focused on the manufacture and sale of MMA monomer and polymers (SUMIPEX® PMMA). Our products are exported and sold across Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, India, the Middle East, South Africa, Oceania, Europe, the US, and many other countries.

To meet the rapid increase in demand for MMA monomer and SUMIPEX® PMMA in Asia, Sumitomo Chemical Singapore has established itself as Asia’s largest integrated producer of MMA monomer and SUMIPEX® PMMA. We are committed to uphold our founding principle, contribute to solving problems faced by the global community and work closely with our customers to meet their needs. Sumitomo Chemical Singapore aims to be the most reliable business partner by providing high quality products and services.
