In 1931, Asahi Kasei began operation of the Bemberg Plant in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture, and since then the plant has continued running in harmony with its rich natural surroundings.
As the only cupra fiber manufacturer in the world, we are making constant efforts to enhance quality, while respecting the natural environment by implementing numerous ingenious solutions at production facilities to lower the environmental impact.

A place to discover the history and traditions of lining and imagine its future
The Bemberg™ Lining Museum+ was opened in October 2014 in Jimbocho, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo as a place to look back on the history of Bemberg™ lining, and speculate about the future of lining by looking at its present form. Since then, more than 4,700 people have visited the museum. In November 2018, along with the relocation of our head office, Bemberg™ Lining Museum+ was renovated and reopened in Tokyo Midtown Hibiya. At this newly transformed spot in Hibiya, we will continue to examine and deeply reflect on all aspects of lining, and actively communicate this information to the world. We will take the opportunity of people’s visits to nurture relationships with our customers, learn about their needs for new product development, and listen to what other requests they may have. We hope this museum will become a venue where we can deepen communication.
