Mitsubishi Chemical transfers shares of subsidiary Lucite International Japan to Midorikawa Chemical

The date of the transfer is scheduled to be April 1 of this year

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation today announced that it has decided to transfer all MCC group’s shares of Lucite International Japan Co., Ltd. to Tokyo-based Midorikawa Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. 
 
Lucite Japan was established as an acrylic composite material production and sales base in Japan for Imperial Chemical Industries of the UK. Since 1993, the company has been operating in Namegata City, Ibaraki Prefecture, responding to domestic demand for acrylic composite material, which is used in applications such as bathtubs, kitchens, and wash basins. 
 
Since MCC’s acquisition of Lucite International Group Limited, Lucite Japan has been operating as a group company of MCC. However, MCC has now made the decision to transfer all its shares in Lucite Japan to Midorikawa Chemical as part of portfolio reforms based on Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group’s management policy, “Forging the future.” The date of the transfer is scheduled to be April 1 of this year.
