Group Company:
  • Mitsubishi Chemical America

Mitsubishi Chemical America (MCA), one of 4 regional headquarters established by parent company Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, includes 20 group companies in North and South America.

After WWII, the original Mitsubishi organization was disbanded to become independent companies as they are today.
