Fujibo is the manufacturer and developer of polishing pads used in
various applications ranging from semiconductor wafer polishing
and computer hard disk polishing to ceramic and glass polishing.
The company also develops value-added, functional textile products
such as Spanfresh, a moisture-absorbing and -releasing elastane
yarn used primarily in underwear. Other products include Chitopoly,
an apparel fiber woven with catechin, a substance extracted from
the shells of crab and shrimp that gives it odor-preventing and
antibacterial properties. Fujibo also produces and markets BVD-brand
undergarments and shirts in Japan through a licensing agreement
with fruit of the loom. Because of a decreased demand for polynosic
rayon, Fujibo has become one of Japan's last textile companies to
continue producing that fiber.
