Providing Stable Supply of Products

In order to fulfill its mission to ensure stable supply of its products, the Hitachi Chemical Group works to strengthen its relations with its material suppliers and subcontractors. Notably, following the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, it has been working on further fortifying Business Continuity Management (BCM) with its business partners, including measures in place to minimize the influence of disruptions in the supply of materials on its customers by storing certain amount of stock to prepare for emergency situations in cases where materials are sourced from multiple suppliers or can be obtained from a single supplier due to their unique attributes.

The Group continued to expand overseas production sites through M&As in fiscal 2016 as part of its globalization initiatives, including considering operating multiple sites to prepare for possible emergencies, thereby reducing the risk when establishing a new production site.
