Thank you for supporting DKS and using DKS products. DKS has long been operated, since establishment, based on the three mottoes i.e. Quality First, Cost Reduction and R&D Efforts as its basic managerial psyche. Now that we are in the 21st century where industries need more chemistry, our company credo – Contributing to the nation and society through industry – appears to be even more important. In the time of globalization, yet, our predecessors’ words are reminding us of the originalities defined by borders and good old traditions of our country. Each of us feels the essentiality of a chemical material manufacturer to serve the society.
R&D Efforts is the driving force to realize Quality First and Cost Reduction; technology is the source of growth. Keeping the original purpose of establishment in mind, our endeavors have been continued toward development of technologies and products. Based on our five core businesses, namely Surfactants, Amenity Materials, Polyurethane Materials, Functional Materials and Electronic Device Materials, it will remain our uppermost objective to improve our product lineup to achieve customers’ further satisfactions. We will continuously nourish new businesses to meet customers’ requirements.
REACT1000, our five-year management plan, was launched in April, 2015. The word REACT denotes mutual, prompt, reactive and energetic actions, and it is accompanied with the slogan Act for a Leap. The five years begins with three years of productivity enhancement principally with our new mother plant in Yokkaichi, which is going to be our complex activity base of production, R&D and sales, followed by two years of actual Leap. The REACT strategies include full utilization of our management resources for the purpose of elevating the general and integrative quality of the company. It is a five-year period where we literally put our slogan Our chemistry meets your needs into practice.
As of 1st June, 2015, Japan’s Corporate Governance Code was put into effect. This means that the government now defines the route of economic growth cycle by corporations.
We shall propel Japan’s industry, Japan’s property
And let our culture shine more brightly
The DKS company song supports our corporate governance policies together with company credo and mottoes. DKS will continuously be managed from the viewpoints of our four stakeholders: Society, customers, shareholders and employees.
Thank you very much.
