Product category: Installation and equipment of supply conduits (gas, compressed air, oxygen, water, electricity,…)
Medical gases that play a crucial role in respiratory therapy and anesthesia introduction are considered to be a lifeline for medical institutions. It is the suppliers' mission to ensure the supply of medical gases under all circumstances without a delay of a minute or even one second. Air Water supplies a variety of medical gases, including inhaled gases such as oxygen and nitrous oxide as well as nitric oxide preparation, liquid helium, sterilization gas, and others.
Medical Gas in Compliance with the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law
There are various types of medical gas, including gaseous drugs and other gases that are also involved in medical treatment. There are two types of gaseous drugs: “Japanese Pharmacopoeia drugs”, which are listed in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia and are regulated by the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law and “drugs other than Japanese Pharmacopoeia drugs”, which are approved under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law.
Since its inception in 1929, Air Water has expanded its business fields through its own unique approach. It started with industrial gases that are indispensable to Japan's manufacturing and with medical gases that are vital to hospitals and other places where lives are being saved, and expanded to chemicals, agriculture and food products, seawater industry, and logistics. Through various types of business, we have grown to play roles that are crucial to the world, “just like air and water,” as our company name implies.
At the source of this growth is the spirit of our founders that each of our employees maintains. All of our employees think of themselves founders of new businesses, continually taking on challenges that go beyond their current experience and knowledge. The accumulation of these innovative efforts leads to the creation of ever more unique business models. In this way, fresh energy and inspiration are constantly infused into management; this is where the uniqueness of Air Water lies.
In 2010, Air Water set a large-scale vision “to become a 1 trillion yen company by fiscal 2020.” I know this is a high goal, but I am confident that we will be able to attain it without fail if we build up an appropriate business portfolio based on our management strategy, the “All Weather Management System” and promote our growth strategy, the “Order Rodentia Style of Business.”
Today, with drastic changes taking place in the business environment, a company must continually adapt to those changes. This is an era where not the strongest or the most intelligent, but rather those who can change will survive. The over 12,000 employees of the Air Water Group have always been changing and will continue to change, like air and water, in order that our goods and services become still more attractive to society and even better meet the needs of people's lives. I sincerely ask for the same understanding and support for our efforts in the future that you have given us up until now.
