We, Chugai Match Co., Ltd. have been running a match manufacturing business in Okayama with the thought of “providing excellent quality products that are useful for human life” for more than 130 years since our founding in 1890.

From now on, in addition to providing body-friendly Nonsulfur matches, we will contribute to the conservation of society and the natural environment while expanding the possibilities of “matches” that enrich human life and hearts.

In the factory, there are thousands, and tens of thousands of repeated tasks by craftsmen’s sweaty and oily hands while repairing and using old machines carefully. We confront all tiny problems, and establish new methods with new ideas, then keep challenging for the future furthermore. We will continue to face matchsticks with our craftsman spirit, “heart of manufacturing” for the next 100 years.
