The Role of Soda Nikka
Strengths and Business Model
The company was established in 1947 as Soda Shoji Co., Ltd., with capital of 180,000 yen and 16 employees, by a powerful group after the dissolution of a special company, formed through the merger of Sarashiko Hanbai Co., Ltd. and Nihon Anmonia-ho Soda Hanbai Co., Ltd., that had controlled the sale of soda products before the War. In April 1979, Soda Shoji merged with Kansai-based Shinnikka Sangyou Co., Ltd. to become Soda Nikka.
Of all the things created by humankind, chemical products in all their diversity play a more important role than anything else to support people's lifestyles. Soda Nikka's mission is to ensure a stable supply of these chemical products and to support the development and delivery of new materials to help build abundant societies for all.
We respond to various industry needs, leveraging the following strengths: Robust business base, fields where we have a competitive advantage, and emerging businesses in areas with growth potential (environmental and disaster preparedness). With the concept of bridging the environment and chemistry, we do business centered on the dual segments of chemicals and functional materials.
As the pace of industrial change accelerates around the world, companies will face difficulties to survive in dramatically changing or growing markets if they continue to rely on outdated concepts and approaches to business. Based on this concept ion, Soda Nikka has formulated a long-term vision with a focus on future economic and industrial trends. The key word in this long-term vision is “aggressive.” While promoting our own transformation, we will utilize the strengths we have acquired in the process. As “a coordinator of better society with chemical industry”, we aim to improving our business values and social values through addressing social issues together with our business partners and local communities.
