Mr Manabu Nozawa

President and CEO


Thank you very much for visiting the Kanto Chemical website.

Since 1944, when the company was founded, we have been actively contributing to society, as a comprehensive reagent manufacturer, by striving to make products that meet customer needs, and by supplying high-quality reagents.

In addition to a wide variety of general reagents, our products include pharmaceutical intermediates, specialty chemicals, and clinical reagents for life science, which we have developed with our original technologies obtained from reagent manufacturing techniques. We are also developing reagents for genetics and regenerative medicine. The total number of our products already exceed 50,000.

These products are manufactured in our six production sites in Japan, including Soka Factory, our main plant, and Iwate Factory, Isehara Factory, Mie Factory, Okayama Factory, and Omuta Factory.

Moreover, our high purity chemicals for manufacturing semiconductors and liquid crystal displays are produced not only in Japan, but also in the United States, Taiwan, Singapore and China.

Our brand mark “Cica” is printed on the products manufactured in these production sites.

We pay close attention to environmental protection and safety management as issues of the highest priority. With our code of conduct for CSR activities, we promote thorough enforcement of compliance, prevention of abuse, environmental protection, safety and accident prevention, creation of better working environments, and communication with local communities. Through these activities, we work to provide value-added and reliable products to all customers. By organising Kanto Chemical Group’s best efforts, we are committed to active contributions to the progress and development of modern technology.

We hope that you will gain a better understanding of Kanto Chemical through this website. We look forward to your continued support and encouragement.
