History

Our Approach
From its establishment in 1982, Sankei Group has made research and development on Chlorine Oxide known as a base compound of pesticides, and manufactured and sold its products. We also developed new products composed of the material and proposed many other methods for using it. In regard to our remarkable findings, we have filed the patents, and made a contribution to the food industry, the related ministries, agencies and organizations.

Sodium Hypochlorite, Chlorinated Lime High, Sodium Chlorite, and Chlorine Dioxide are originally among Chlorine Oxide. And from the hygiene control perspective, we developed products in the way where many people can take them safely and securely for the purpose of disinfect and bacteria elimination in food processing operations. We are now planning the further use of these materials, focusing on prevention of viral infection.

Accordingly, we explore the new market where Chlorinate Oxide products are effectively applied in many ways. As going on with our research on the material, we set our goal to offer our products in various markets, presenting with the manuals regarding hygiene and infection control. At first, one of our plans is to introduce our disinfect and bacteria elimination products and its usage to fish, livestock and animal husbandry processing industries and the food retailing industry for their food processing operations. Secondly, we will expand our sanitizer and detergent products to social welfare facilitates and educational institutions by offering them the new methods of application.

Finally, we have succeeded to fluidify Chlorous Acid for the first time in all over the world and filed the patents internationally. Now, the Chlorous Acid product is a commercially reality. And this enables us to develop new era-sighted Chlorinate Oxide products such as Sodium Chlorite products in particular, and plan the new ways to use as well. We are now in a preparatory step to promote our Sodium Chlorite products to overseas countries.

SANKEI Group, as we always have, will hope to be the company that contributes our society and aim to help our living rich, modern and hygienic. Thus, this is our approach
