A Message from TMUS President & CEO
“Toray is recognized as one of the market leaders in membrane technology with our deep-rooted expertise in material chemistry and state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities. I am honored to be a part of the Toray Group and excited to lead TMUS into our next phase of growth. I look forward to expanding Toray’s global effort to provide water treatment technologies to supply freshwater across the globe while leading TMUS to establish Toray’s pole position in the Americas. This is an exciting time for the water industry, not just because we’re looking at turning the corner with the COVID pandemic, which has immensely impacted our ways of life, but also more emphasis now than ever before on having more sustainable freshwater sources. Membrane technology will certainly be at the forefront of this sustainability movement, as will Toray.”
