Otsuka, Thailand

Before 1965, Thailand had, product and use of Basic Intravenous Solutions in glass bottles and imported from Europe.
Otsuka (Pharmaceutical company in Japan) foresaw the opportunity that the Thai people could use more modern and safer Basic Intravenous Solutions and, therefore, collaborated with Chor. Charoen Bhaesaj managed by Khun Charoen Suntayodom, in importing Basic Intravenous Solutions in plastic bottles with the closed system and subsequently it was well popular among the Thai people and could not meet the market demands. Khun Charoen took the milestone decision to produce these products locally instead of importing from Japan. So he negotiated with the executives of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Japan at that time to invest and establish a company and Basic Intravenous Solution factory in Thailand under the efficient technology of Otsuka Pharmaceutical o., Ltd., Japan.

Thai Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. was officially established on December 7, 1973, making it the first joint venture outside Japan of Otsuka Group.

For over 40 years until today, Thai Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. has still adhered to the first concept when it was established for the better health of Thai people. We promise to innovate, develop and improve in order to obtain the quality products and enhance the better quality of life for Thai people forever.

“Busaburo on the cow’s back”

This image called “Busaburo on the cow’s back” was published in internal of Otsuka group company to communicate the mottos and thinking way of founder. The boy who sat on the cow’s back is Mr. Busaburo Otsuka in childhood.

During World War I, he joined the navy to served his country and he had a chance to study engineering in meanwhile. Mr. Busaburo Otsuka was started a business after the World War I ended. As a traditional Japanese believe that Cow was a formidable animal and sitting on its back was forbidden. So, sitting on the cow’s back implies that we did not stick on traditional ideas or beliefs and we must prove it through practice by ourselves.

The rice field in the picture background was belongs to Mr. Busaburo's father. His father was initially opposed to his decision to start a business but after some time passed he sold the land to support his son's business. As a result, this land marks the start of Otsuka.

The individuality and truth will be appear when the execution succeed.

Mr. Masahito Otsuka, the second family leader,

inherited the business in 1946 and expanded the business to medical food and saline solution.

He provided us the motto "Jissho-shugi" which means everything must be done to make it happen. Action speak louder than words. For example, if we put effort 99% to a medicine and it’s almost

authorized despite, it is regarded disapproved and it might give us a zero value. We must put more than 100% effort for completion. So everything prove through by execution.
