To create for better health of Thai people
Before1965, Thailand had usage of Basic Intravenous Solution products in glass bottles 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 Co., 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.
