Tokyo, Japan (January 27, 2017) Effective April 1, 2017 Mitsubishi Rayon Co., LTD. will officially
change its name to Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) completing the integration with its parent
company Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (MCHC).
MCHC officially acquired Mitsubishi Rayon in April 2010. Following the acquisition Mitsubishi Rayon
has continued to operate under its current name, but as part of the MCHC family. The official name
change to Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC), will also impact two additional MCHC
consolidated subsidiaries – Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation and Mitsubishi Plastics, Inc.
Mitsubishi Rayon/Graphite Shaft Division
Mitsubishi Rayon’s global golf shaft divisions will continue to operate in the same capacity and
structure under the new organization with a new name.
Beginning in April the global golf shaft division will begin the process of changing the branding on all
products, marketing and promotional materials going forward to align with the new MCHC structure.
No changes to products, operations, or personnel will occur.
