About Us

Aim to develop medical science through business

“Kawanishi Kikaiten”, the origin of Kawanishi Group, was founded in 1921 as people were getting interested in Western medicine by Taisho democracy. Since then, Kawanishi Group has kept the business running along with evolving medical technologies.

These days, there are several signs of changes such as presentation of “2025 model” which means restructure of health system, clinical application of regenerative medicine, and rapid spread of surgical robot. These changes force us to provide appropriate information meeting doctor’s perspective and solutions that answer the needs of medical staff. Therefore, we’re focusing on cultivating specialized human resources and investing in information system which allows us to access technique and academic knowledge easily.

Moreover, we will not stop seeking frontier to remain as a stable and reliable company for stakeholders; customers and stockholders. We keep making a strategic move from a global perspective such as medicine-engineering collaboration with manufacturing companies, establishment of Academic Institution and exploration of new business fields beyond the concept of traditional medical device dealer. I’m sure that my experience as a doctor and a professor at Okayama University School of Medicine would be a great help for those goals.

“Working hard for the public’s benefit for the country and society, aim to contribute to the quality improvement and cost rationalization.” This is a part of our employee charter about social significance of business. I exert myself to contribute to the development of medical science and extension of healthy life expectancy through running our business.
