A reliable provider of supplying high-quality bottles and jars that have gone through a stringent quality control process for use in a wide variety of fields,
What makes GLASEL different is We Create Containers to meet every need.
GLASEL aims to be the one-stop store for containers, providing products for industries as wide-ranging as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, reagents, and health foods. Not only do we already boast the industry's top line-up of original products, but we are also constantly developing new containers.
Network of collaborating factories gives us the wide-ranging capacity to deal with a diverse variety of products: We have adopted a manufacturing system whereby forming and processing is carried out at the most appropriate collaborating factory for each individual product, which allows us to handle the production of a broad range of products. GLASEL is responsible for every stage up to final inspection, enabling us to supply safe, high-quality products. In addition to Japanese-manufactured products, we also have a group company in Thailand* as well as outstanding factories in South Korea and elsewhere.
In-house network for monitoring every process up until final inspection: From forming and processing to inspection and delivery, GLASEL provides total support through close coordination. Our warehouses are also concentrated within the Head Office premises to ensure that our products are supplied efficiently, swiftly, and carefully.
Flexible thinking and planning expertise, with the goal of being a one-stop store for containers: While grasping the latest information and market requirements, GLASEL is constantly planning and creating original products.
Expertise in proposals enables us to give concrete form to our customers' needs: GLASEL's marketing staff, who are well versed in the company's products, utilize the company's high-level design services, not just catalogs but also online simulation and the industry's largest showroom among many other methods, to offer efficient proposals for the best products.
Consumer confidence built up through the development of numerous products: Building on our long-standing performance and experience, we are developing containers that combine plastics chosen for their compatibility with the contents concerned with good design, usability, and the capacity for mass production.
The technology to produce high-quality products: We work in concert with collaborating manufacturers and prioritize quality to provide products that feel safe.
Rigorous functional testing for quality control: The new models handled by GLASEL undergo functional tests including leakage testing, environmental tests, and others, and only go on sale after their acceptability has been confirmed by the Quality Control Division.
Random checks on internal delivery and total inspections in the clean room: Products furnished by GLASEL are always subject to random checks*, and we only supply products that meet our standards. For international products and when higher-level standards are required, all units are checked in a clean room. (*Except in special circumstances.)
Cleaning equipment for fully automated rinsing and drying: The clean room contains a line for the fully automated rinsing and drying of containers, mainly glass bottles, with water purified by reverse osmosis (RO water).
GLASEL responds to its customers' needs by mobilizing capacities that exceed the functions of a commercial company together with its strength in prioritizing outstanding safety above all else.
Considering the future of the global environment: A staunchly ecological mindset that asks what we should do today about the emerging degradation of the global environment is now vital for any company. As a provider of containers, GLASEL sets out and engages in environmental activities as one aspect of corporate policy.
In terms of products, the company is implementing a variety of measures to promote the development of a recycling-oriented society, including the widespread adoption of environmentally friendly plastic containers, the development of refillable containers that can be reused over and over, and the recycling of glass bottles as well as the reduction of their use.
Never satisfied with the status quo, we will continue to see it as our mission to make an even greater contribution to society by devising environmentally friendly containers and systems.
Use and promotion of environmentally friendly resin containers: As environmental and energy-related issues such as global warming and the exhaustion of oil reserves come into close-up, the focus is now on carbon-neutral* plant-based plastics (biomass), which pose less of an environmental burden, as substitutes for conventional petroleum-based plastics.
GLASEL handles a wide range of environmentally friendly resins, and is putting particular effort into encouraging the widespread use of bio-PE.
* Carbon-neutral : Plastics made from plant material are environmentally friendly because they do not theoretically result in net CO2 emissions even if they are incinerated on disposal, as the plants from which they are made absorb CO2 as they grow.
Bio-PE: Bio-polyethylene (bio-PE) is manufactured using ethylene derived from bioethanol, which is made from plant material as its raw ingredient. A product made entirely from bio-PE contains 96% biomass-derived material, which reduces CO2 emissions by approximately 70% compared with petroleum-based PE. An advantage is that following ethylene production, polyethylene manufacture follows exactly the same process as for petroleum-based PE, so it can easily be shaped by using the same molding devices and molds. It is almost exactly the same color as conventional PE, and has an equivalent track record in terms of its ability to withstand heat and shock as well as ease of processing and lack of smell. It is also sufficiently chemical-resistant for use with products such as cosmetics and shampoos, and has a good track record in this area.
The material described is PE, and all GLASEL products made with PE can also be made with Bio-PE*. Products that are made with a minimum Bio-PE ratio of 25% are able to be labeled with BP mark after receiving certification from the JBPA (Japan BioPlastics Association). Bio-PE is applicable for packaging bottles only.
Solar panel installation on Head Office roof: Solar power generation is one effective solution to energy resource issues, with their major feature being their clean nature, as no CO2 is emitted in the electricity generation process.
GLASEL has installed solar panels on the roof of its Head Office. This is one way of helping to preserve the global environment by utilizing environmentally friendly clean energy.
