Company Profile

Message

Since 1966, when our company was established as Chikamochi Pure Chemical Laboratory in Osaka, we have been making a great effort with your help and have fortunately marked our 50th anniversary. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you.
I am also grateful for your visit to our company's website, which has been relaunched to mark this occasion.
Away from Osaka where we started our business, we are now manufacturing products in Techno-park Kyoto in Kyotanba-cho, Funai-gun, Kyoto, an area blessed with an abundance of nature. All these years, we have experienced the tide of technological progress calling for a transformation. We have acquired new customers for iron chloride, which we have been producing since our foundation, and made an entry into a new field of cerium compounds. With the belief that "by making products with integrity, we can ascend one step," we intend to make a collective effort to keep creating satisfactory products with the stance that "I will do it and not wait for someone else do it."

The president, Haruko Chikamochi
