CONFLEX Corporation was founded in April 2000 by Dr. Kazuo Ohta.
The company is located at
Shinagawa Center Bldg. 6F,
3-23-17, Takanawa, Minato-ku,
Tokyo 108-0074 Japan.
The company has on its Board of Director, Dr. Hitoshi Goto, professor at Toyohashi University of Tempaku-cho, Toyohashi, Japan, who is the principal researcher and developer of the CONFLEX algorithms.
Dr. Ohta was the primary architect and head programmer of
the original CAChe CONFLEX integration project. This
project was conducted at Sony-Tektronics and integrated
the CAChe version of CONFLEX software.
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 Dr. Gotoh to form CONFLEX Corporation.
Today, nearly 7 versions and 20 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.
