UNIQLO Co., Ltd. started marketing HEATTECH™* in 2003 and this proved to be an exemplary joint effort between UNIQLO Co., Ltd. and Toray. We began our strategic partnership in 2006 with an agreement to set and share five-year targets. In November 2015, we signed the third stage strategic partnership agreement for 2016 to 2020. During the press conference after the signing ceremony, President Akihiro Nikkaku, who attended together with UNIQLO Co., Ltd. Chairman and President Tadashi Yanai, said, "Materials have the power to fundamentally change society. HEATTECH™ is a product that has pioneered and created a new market and changed society as a result. Together with UNIQLO Co., Ltd., we will make a total effort to continue providing people all over the world with superior quality clothing made with the functionality and sensitivity of Toray materials."
