Showa Denko opens subsidiary branch in Wuhan to sell high-purity gases


Showa Denko K.K (SDK) has established a branch of its subsidiary Shanghai Showa Chemicals Co., Ltd. (SSC) in Wuhan, Hubei Province in China, aiming to strengthen its business to sell high-purity gases for electronics in China.

Semiconductor and flat panel display (FPD) industries are growing rapidly in China due to the Chinese government’s policy for the development of these industries, said SDK in a statement. In the past, the Japanese company shipped all of its high-purity gases for electronics to be used by customers in China from SSC located in Shanghai.

“This time, however, SDK decided to establish a branch of SSC and its warehouse in Wuhan due to the following reasons.

“Firstly, since the laws and regulations concerning handling of hazardous materials including high-purity gases for electronics have been strengthened in China, it became necessary for SDK to ungently establish stable distribution network for high-purity gases which has dispersed warehouses. Wuhan is a good location for a distribution centre to cover major cities in Central China.”
