Superior Flux and Nihon Superior have been working together for over fifty years!

On May 3rd, 2017 we had the honor and pleasure of a visit from Mr. Tetsuro Nishimura, President of Nihon Superior, as well Mr. Keith Howell, Technical Director of Nihon Superior USA.  We discussed ongoing joint projects in the areas of specialty soldering and brazing.

Superior Flux (Cleveland, USA) and Nihon Superior (Osaka, Japan) began working together in 1966, when Nihon Superior began importing Superior Flux products into Japan.  That year was indeed the year that Mr. Toshiro Nishimura (father of Mr. Tetsuro Nishimura) founded Nihon Superior.  Since that time Nihon Superior has become one of the premier solder suppliers in the world, with operations across the globe.  Nihon Superior’s SN100C is considered a standard in lead-free soldering.  Not resting on its laurels and grooming the next generation in Mr. Takatoshi Nishimura, Nihon Superior continues be at the forefront in developing  new soldering alloys and technologies.

In 1966 when Nihon Superior and Superior Flux first started working, Superior Flux was already 34 years old!  At that time Superior Flux had 20 or so core flux products.  Since that time Superior Flux has expanded into virtually every type of flux for soldering and brazing, not to mention certain welding applications.  Through acquisitions and a constant effort to be at the vanguard of flux technology, Superior Flux has grown its product line into several hundred actively sold formulations, and many more in development.

Superior Flux relishes the opportunity to have long working relationships with world class companies like Nihon Superior.  We wish Nihon Superior continued success and look forward to continuing to provide it with flux solutions.
