CONFLEX Corporation was founded in April 2000 by Dr. Kazuo
Ohta. The company is located at MG Meguro 6F, 2-15-19,
Kami-Osaki, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 141-0021 Japan.
The company has on its Board of Directors, Dr. Hitoshi Gotoh,
professor at Toyohashi University of Tempaku-cho, Toyohashi,
Japan, who is the principal researcher and developer of
the CONFLEX algorithms, and Dr. Eiichi Morishita formerly
with the computational chemistry section at Sony-Tektronics
Dr. Ohta was the primary architect and head programmer of
the original CAChe/beta CONFLEX integration project. This
project was conducted at Sony-Tektronics and integrated
the beta version of CONFLEX with the then current CAChe
software (Fujitsu, Ltd.). This experience showed Dr. Ohta
the potential of high-accuracy conformational software as
a stand-alone offering and was the driver for him breaking
off with Drs. Gotoh and Morishita to form CONFLEX Corporation.
Today, nearly 5 versions and 9 years later from the CAChe
integration project, CONFLEX Corporation is a very successful
company serving prestigious clients in Japan such as:
Dainippon Ink & Chemicals, Inc.
Ebara Research Co., Ltd.
Japan Tobacco Inc.
Konica Technology Center Corporation
Nippon Soda Co., Ltd.
Nippon Steel Chemical Co., Ltd.
Seiko Epson Corporation
Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd.
Toagosei Co., Ltd.
Ricoh Co., Ltd.
CONFLEX Corporation also maintains close working and research
relationships with the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture,
Sports, Science and Technology, and other institutes such
as the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science
and Technology of Tsukuba, Japan.
