Message from president

It's digital technology that flowered in the late 20th century. The radical progress of this technology has brought about huge changes in society, economics and our life. For instance, the entertainment industry including music, pictures etc., has undergone great changes. Lithium is a material which supports this digital society. Lithium batteries, with high energy density and capacity, are now in growing demand even in space. It is lithium foil for a negative electrode that is an indispensable constituent of the battery. Honjo Metal is the first company in Japan that moved into action to develop lithium foil, encouraged by the promising future of lithium batteries. We also successfully established the world's only method of processing lithium under argon atmosphere in a glove box. We are a leading provider of extruded and (or) rolled metallic lithium, and maintain a stable supply of products to lithium battery manufacturers and chemical makers domestically and overseas. Honjo Metal spares no effort in contributing to an affluent society though its original lithium processing technology.
