Mitsubishi Chemical America Inc. Sporting Goods Division is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation, dedicated to designing and developing the highest performing composite golf shafts for discerning golfers everywhere. We leverage our own resources and raw materials (vertical integration), which gives us a competitive advantage. Over the years, we have been a leading supplier of premium composite golf shafts worldwide. With many of the world's best players using our products, we have established ourselves as one of the leaders in the golf industry.
Mitsubishi Chemical makes some of best golf shafts because we make them from scratch. We not only manufacture the golf shaft, but all of the critical raw materials that make up the golf shaft including the monomer, acrylic fiber, carbon fiber, resin, and prepreg. Over the last 30 years, we have developed more than a thousand different formulations of resin and made over a hundred types of fiber for many performance-based applications, including golf shafts.
This vertical integration means we can make virtually any combination of resins and fibers required to optimize a golf shaft's design and performance. The majority of our competitors, on the other hand, work with a relatively limited list of raw materials from a finite number of available suppliers. Typically they purchase stock prepreg, which can require designs to be adjusted to the limitations of the available materials. Our ability to make any composition of resin or fiber and combine them into our own prepreg sets us apart from our competition. It provides us with A Material Difference.
The majority of our material technologies are developed in-house at our labs in Toyohashi, Japan or within the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group. Over the years, we have created thousands of proprietary materials and processes that together create the finest golf shafts in the world. Performance without Compromise.
