Message from the President

Junichi Takahashi, President & Representative Director

By plotting a business strategy for global expansion and practicing product development and operational and promotional activities suitable to the market environment, we will endeavor to enhance our corporate value.

  At SDS Biotech, we’re conducting business activities under a management philosophy of contribution to society through providing products that reflect our consideration to food safety and environmental protection, with our R&D serving as the foundation. As a company acting as the core of the agricultural chemical business of the Idemitsu Kosan Group, we serve to achieve the same goals in relation to the keywords of "food safety and security" and "expanding food demand", and feel that it’s our mission to acknowledge our social responsibility and subsequently contribute to society.
  Since we’ve unified our business year with that of Idemitsu Kosan, we feel that more expeditious and efficient business operations are possible within the context of general group management.

  In terms of the footing for our growth strategies going forward, we are currently accelerating the expansion of our overseas business and actively promoting overseas expansion mainly for paddy herbicides we’ve developed in-house.
  Moreover, 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the domestic sales launch of Daconil 1000, a fungicide which is a major product of our company. To further strengthen our production framework and popularizing activities for Daconil, our core business, we have entered into capital and business partnerships with two Chinese companies and established a local subsidiary in Shanghai, China.
  Regarding our domestic business operations, we have registered and rolled out multiple new active ingredients in recent years, thereby enhancing our product pipeline as a research and development-oriented company. In the coming years, we will continue striving to develop products that obtain the confidence and satisfaction of customers.

  At SDS Biotech, we’ll continue to look at things from a global perspective and aim for sustainable corporate growth through hands-on activities geared toward growth for the areas of market-oriented product development and sales.
  Thus, we would like to humbly ask for your continued support in the future.
