This Division tackles the frontiers of value creation above and beyond the scope of a traditional trading company, aiming to expand in step with clients as a strategic partner and having key words such as "Water", "Foods", "Health and Beauty", "Environment". At a time when trading companies are now differentiating themselves, we emphasize the cultivating of trade rather than brokerage that simply sees goods change hands. We are thus moving from the older quantitative expansion (or, "growth") model to one of quality expansion ( "development"). Business Domain of this Division is mainly in Food additives, Agrichemicals like pesticides and cultivation system, Feed additives, "Supplement", "Friction materials" and "Water Treatment".
