Long-lasting is one of our core concepts in research and development. We offer a full line-up of refillable markers, stamp pads, and pre-inked stamps.
3. Ecology system good for people and the environment
Shachihata conducts eco-friendly manufacturing at each factory.
Example: lnazawa (Japan) factory
Ink solvent recovery system
Waste water regenerating system
ISO9001/ISO14001 : RESEARCH&DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION HEADQUARTER
4. Manufacturing that is good for the environment...ECO-GREEN
Shachihata has released a line of ECO-GREEN products made from recycled and other materials of a low impact on the environment with the realization of the action that must be taken by the manufacturer.
PERCENTAGE OF RECYCLED PLASTICS*
RECYCLED ABS, RECYCLED POM, RECYCLED PET
RECYCLED ABS, RECYCLED POM, RECYCLED PET
- Percentage of recycled plastics weight in the total of the plastic, not including the ink weight.
5. To prevent global warming
Shachihata has been conducting Carbon Offset (in Australia) to prevent global warming.
Artline has purchased carbon credits in global hydroelectric power generation. So Artline 70, 90, 700 and 100 permanent markers, and 200 writing pens are doing their bit for the environment.
