The keyword “Smile” is positioned at the heart of the Suzuken Group's Management Principles. This concept acknowledges the fact that good health helps to produce “smiles.” Our Management Principles espouse the overarching message and hope of bringing “smiles” to the faces of all those that make up the health creation domain including patients, customers, shareholders, our employees and their families as well as local communities and society.

Suzuken as a "health creator"

Suzuken's core business is pharmaceutical distribution. As a leader in the field, we deliver ethical pharmaceuticals for patients, diagnostic reagents and medical equipment safely and reliably to medical institutions and pharmacies. The Suzuken Group spans Japan: Suzuken Okinawa Yakuhin Co., Ltd., Suzuken Iwate Co., Ltd., Nakano Yakuhin Co., Ltd. (Tochigi Prefecture), Sanki Corporation (Chugoku region), ASTIS Co., Ltd. (Shikoku), and Shoyaku Co., Ltd. (Kyushu). Suzuken plays a central role in Japanese pharmaceutical distribution with the nationwide network of sales offices it commands through these group companies.

Moreover, the Suzuken Group's collective capabilities extend beyond pharmaceutical distribution to span the full range of healthcare-related fields. Other companies in the group include Sanwa Kagaku Kenkyusho Co., Ltd. (pharmaceutical manufacturing), Kenzmedico Co., Ltd. (medical equipment manufacturing), Life Support Co., Ltd. (insurance consulting), and Life Medicom Co., Ltd. (medical publishing and advertising).

Suzuken makes the most of the valuable feedback its nationwide network provides from medical practitioners. It puts this information to good use in developing new ways to contribute to medical treatment. However, this is not the only focus of Suzuken's efforts. The Suzuken Group also develops equipment intended to help the general public stay healthy, working in a broad range of medical and health-related fields to support healthy lifestyles.
