Since its founding in the United States in 1914, Potters has been developing innovative glass bead manufacturing technology that enables the effective reuse of resources, and has expanded its products to a wide range of industrial applications with new added values. Currently, we have more than 30 factories in 14 countries around the world, which gives us the opportunities to contribute to the ever-changing society.

In Japan, starting with road marking paint applications since the establishment of a domestic corporation in 1966, we have been striving to meet the expectations of the market in a wide range of industrial applications from electronics to medical fields for more than half a century.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all those who have supported us over the years, and we would like to continue to strongly promote the necessary changes and challenges for the next era with your continued cooperation. We look forward to your continued guidance and encouragement.

Our factory may not have the latest equipment as a many of the equipment has been used since the company was founded. However, our products are carefully made by our colleagues who have a passion for manufacturing


Our product doesn't come out of the facility magically just by pushing a button. People are involved in every part of the process. Of course, the product quality is managed based on strict internal standards, but we are working hard every day to achieve a step-higher quality not just the one that met the standard. We always listen to the voices of our customers to aim even further, so we appreciate your continued guidance and encouragement.
