Our original brand "XEMEX"represents ZEON MEDICAL EXCELLENCE.
“Z” standing for ZEON was replaced with “X”, indicating “challenging to unknown fields” and enclosing our sense of active pursuit in the field of medical devices.

ZEON CORPORATION has continued to develop medical devices utilizing innovative materials, particularly biomaterials, produced by combining the company's exclusive technologies.
