Overview & History

After many years of sales to companies within the United States, Chukyo Yushi Co., Ltd. (Japan) made the decision to open a facility in Kentucky. Cytech was founded March 7, 1988 as a joint venture between Chukyo Yushi Co. Ltd. (Nagoya, Japan), Tomen America Corp. (NY) and Tomen Corporation (Tokyo, Japan).

In 2006, Tomen Corp merged into Toyota Tsusho Corp (part of the Toyota Group of companies). Toyota Tsusho Corp. became Chukyo Yushi’s new partner at the same time. Chukyo Yushi Co., Ltd. And Toyota Tsusho Corp agreed to dissolve the Joint Venture agreement in 2016. In mid-2016, Nagase America and Nagase Corp (Japan) became new joint venture partners with Chukyo Yushi in the enterprise that is Cytech Products, Inc.

Today Cytech Products, Inc. still operates under contract from Chukyo Yushi. Chukyo Ysuhi is the basis for product design and development. Nagase America Corp. coordinates administrative functions for Cytech Products, Inc. as well as acts as a sales agent on our behalf. With Chukyo Yushi and Chukyo Thailand supplying Asia, Cytech supplying the Americas and another Chukyo Yushi company, Chukyo Europe GmbH, supplying Europe, the group offers global availability of a diverse product mixture.

As a manufacturer of performance chemicals, Cytech supplies release agents for molded polyurethane systems, especially in the automotive
industry, coating chemicals for thermal sensitive paper, additives for specialty ceramic applications and more. We also toll produce specific dispersions and emulsions based on customer requirements and formulations.
