Message from the president
Katayama Chemical was founded in April 1918, Our Amagasaki plant was opened in 1951 and the Sanda plant in 1998. Our work is manufacturing chemical agents, primarily reagents. On the basis of the manufacturing technologies mastered, we now participate in the fields of preventive medicine, environmental analysis, and basic biotechnology study (such as the manufacturing of chemical products, xenodiagnostic products, and medical raw materials).
Our recent work, in recognition of rapid advances currently being made in biotechnology, involves providing helpful support to those who are participating in research and development. We supply the high-quality reagents and analytical instruments they need, whether they are manufactured in Japan or elsewhere in the world. We went to serve as a navigator to researchers in the expanding life sciences and desire to contribute to the creation of environments where these people can concentrate on their important research and development.
Contribute to society by creating valuable technological knowledge, valuable products, and by providing valuable services. We are led by the maxim “We aim at the individual, the organization, and the company that can create the change”, and we focus on the value we can offer to and share with researchers.
You can have confidence in Katayama Chemical as we are continually striving to improve existing values while taking up the challenge of creating new values for the future.
Hideki Katayama, President
