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 cladding; 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.
Although they already delivered a high performance fiber cement product in more styles and textures than anybody else, they are constantly developing new products and tweaking the products we already have. 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 with Nichiha.
Nichiha’s residential siding products are engineered to give you jaw-dropping curb appeal without back-breaking maintenance issues. Strong construction ensures you won’t worry about rotting, warping or pests.
As versatile and attractive as it is durable, fiber cement cladding has been earning its stripes for decades. Nichiha has taken all that’s great about fiber cement and engineered it into a rainscreen system that stands alone in the commercial construction universe. With the addition of their timesaving clip installation and an ever-expanding offering of finishes and textures, Nichiha gives you the ability to unleash the power of possibilities with fiber cement cladding.
Nichiha has entered the residential market after finding success in the commercial setting for years. Fiber cement is a versatile, sustainable, high-performance product that makes as much sense for a home as it does for commercial building. You’ll be impressed with the many and varied looks of Nichiha products, but the performance will amaze you. Traditional, Modern and even Interior Styles to choose from in finishes including stacked stone, wood, block, shake, stucco, smooth and brick.
With a concern for the environment and the installers of their products Nichiha formulates their fiber cement products by reducing the amount of silica and increasing the amount fly ash. By using fly ash, Nichiha improves the performance of their products and prevents a substantial amount of post-industrial waste from sitting in a landfill.
Nichiha uses a proprietary stamping procedure to create the vast array of textures they offer. It enables them to create more pressure and have more control than the commonly used rollers of other manufacturers. More pressure means deeper grooves, more shadows and more visual drama.
Every product they make comes off the line with three protective coatings; 2 coats of primer and an anti-efflorescence coating that prevents chalky residue from appearing. The result is a product that holds paint better and looks better longer.
