Having a massive inventory of medical and industrial instruments, AS ONE is in a niche spot to support the world’s leading laboratories, universities and medical facilities. Advancing the research and development field for more than 80 years, the Japanese company has consistently innovated to deliver scientific instruments and create business mechanisms that satisfy customers’ requirements. This client-centric approach is epitomised by AS ONE’s commitment to always deliver the required product, at the right time, and in the required quantity.
“We do not hesitate to provide quality items to customers even if the quantity they ordered is small,” says Takuji Iuchi, president. “With a million instruments in our database, we are the No 1 wholesaler in this business in Japan. Customers also trust us as a reliable retailer and business partner.”

AS ONE welcomes reliable sales agents from China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam to further expand its global network. With its wholesale business in China growing 50 per cent annually, and the chemical and medical markets in Japan posting 20 trillion yen (HK$1.4 trillion) in revenue last year, AS ONE sees significant growth in the horizon.
Guided by Japan’s business philosophy of producing high-quality goods and services to contribute to the public’s well-being, AS ONE markets sophisticated products and develops information networks that constantly create value for society.
“The Japanese way of providing services and products is well-received in Asian markets,” Iuchi says. “We want to continue that by serving as a coordinator or a hub where products, information and people converge to make the world a better place.”
