JOLED is a company that conducts research, development, manufacturing, and sales activities for OLED displays.
JOLED Inc. conducts research, development, manufacturing, and sales activities for OLED displays, their parts, materials, manufacturing equipment, and associated products.
JOLED was founded in January 2015, combining the OLED display development divisions of Sony Corporation and Panasonic Corporation, with the goal of accelerating mass production development and commercialization of OLED displays.
In 2016, the company started up a pilot line (substrate size: G4.5), establishing a mass production technology and improving productivity. Later, in December 2017, JOLED began shipment of its first product, the 21.6-inch 4K OLED display.
On July 1, 2018, JOLED established Nomi site in Nomi city, Ishikawa prefecture. Now the company started establishing the world’s first mass production line for printed OLED, aiming to commence production in 2020.
We develop the most advanced devices which provide new values and achieve a world full of excitement and emotion.
We, as passionate individuals, together with our customers and partners, create displays which project various “Worlds” ”Limitlessly” and expand business sustainably.
Thank you for your understanding and support for JOLED’s management philosophy, research and development activities and business promotion.
In 2019, our company is celebrating its fifth year of business.
Since we started product shipment of the world’s first printed OLED at the end of 2017, 2018 was the year that our business was developed dramatically and progressed to a new stage. We expanded production, developed advanced technologies and established the JOLED Nomi Site as our mass production base.
In 2019, we will steadily foster the three pillars of our business, “Product Business”, “Technology Licensing Business” and “New Business”.
At the Nomi Site, new building will be completed in February, and a pilot-run will start in the second half of the year. We are moving forward on schedule toward mass production in 2020. At the Nomi Site, we will be producing mid-sized (10- to 30-inch) printed OLED displays that make use of OLED’s characteristics of high image quality, high definition, ultra-thin profile, and light weight. We are creating a mid-sized OLED market within the existing OLED market which is currently generally limited to small and large sizes. Customers’ expectations for our printed OLED is very high. We will surely respond to that, furthermore, we will provide excellent products that exceed their expectations.
By leveraging our printing method that can be easily applied to producing screens of diverse sizes, we are continuously working vigorously toward realizing “Technology Licensing Business” for large-sized display production. We are focusing on early launch of the business and start of services, with the aim to broadly spread JOLED’s printed OLED technology in the industry and make it as a de facto standard for OLED display production.
Furthermore, to become a panel manufacturer that is more than just a panel manufacturer, we are also proceeding to construct a new solution business. We will work on market development for new categories, in addition to the new proposition that we made for e-sports category last year.
Our mission at JOLED is to realize a world filled with excitement and emotion through our cutting-edge devices. With products that people always want to carry, experience, wear, and more, we offer “new experiences that strike a chord.” By doing this, can we perhaps enrich spirits, provide convenience, and improve lifestyles? And can we even make a small contribution to enriching people’s lives? We will continue taking on new challenges to achieve this “innovation”.
I would like to ask for your kind and continuous support.
