Engineered Material Systems, Inc. (EMS) (Delaware, Ohio, USA), a global formulator and manufacturer of adhesives, conductives, and encapsulants, announced that it will become Nagase ChemteX America Corporation (NCU), effective January 1, 2021. The upcoming name change is meant to “[signify] its deepening integration with Japanese-based parent company, NAGASE,” the company said in a statement.

For more than two decades, EMS has formulated state-of-the-art acrylics, epoxies, silicones and urethanes for a wide range of markets, including appliance, automotive, filter, lighting, medical, and microelectronics. As Nagase ChemteX America Corporation, the company says it plans to continue its customer-centric business model while leveraging the resources and technologies as part of the NAGASE Group family.

Founded in Kyoto, Japan in 1832 as a specialized purveyor of dyes and chemicals, NAGASE has more than 100 group companies in its portfolio and employs more than 6,000 team members. Spanning 27 countries and regions, NAGASE is a public company with $8 billion in annual revenue.
