Founded in 1956, Nichiha Japan first began operations as a hardboard manufacturer, supplying dashboard and other components for the automobile industry. The company’s immediate success was due in part by superior manufacturing technology and a constant drive for innovation. Although fiber cement was in its infancy, Nichiha’s leadership was energized by its seemingly limitless potential. That drive led to the eventual development of fiber cement claddings; a category that would expand to include over 800 commercial and residential variations produced in 12 manufacturing facilities worldwide including a 300,000 square foot, state-of-the art manufacturing plant in Macon, GA.
Nichiha is applying its brand of manufacturing excellence and innovation in every corner of the U.S. construction market and inspiring building professionals everywhere to open their eyes to the power of possibilities, and take a closer look at what Nichiha can provide.
