History of Kinyo Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
Kinyo Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. has logged over 80 years since our founding,Toichiro Kitayama founded the company as Serve Pharmaceutical Laboratories in 1931.
Our company started out manufacturing Yamato’s home placement drugs.
In March 1947, the company was incorporated as Kinyo Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
The origin of the company name (金陽) comes from its location on the south side of Mount Kongo (金剛) which is situated between Osaka Prefecture and Nara Prefecture.
Because the sun (太陽) shines brightly on the south side of Mount Kongo, large trees thrive in this location.
Our company took its name (金陽) from the first character in Mount Kongo (金) and the second character in sunshine (陽) with the notion that the company would thrive like the large trees basking in the sunshine of Mount Kongo.
Just like our name suggests, we aim to be an enlightened company, just like the sunshine.
We want to be an enlightened company that is trusted by consumers who use our products, suppliers, sales partners and all within our local community including our employees.
