Dejima Optical Films BV was established in 1999 by Polatechno Co. Ltd., a supplier of high-quality film products for the LCD industry.
The company name refers to the long lasting relation between Japan and The Netherlands that started in Dejima, a small fan-shaped artificial island built in the bay of Nagasaki in 1634. This island served as a Dutch trading post. The Dutch were the only foreigners allowed to trade in Japan during the Sakoku (Isolation) period. For 200 years, until Japan reopened the country in the 19th century, Dejima was its only window to the world.
Product development and Technical marketing takes place in close cooperation with Polatechno, our Japanese mother company.
Dejma Optical Films is a Nippon Kayaku Group company.
