Kyowa Hakko Chemical Americas to Become KH Neochem Americas


Kyowa Hakko Chemical Americas Inc. recently announced it will be renamed KH Neochem Americas Inc., effective April 1.

The company will continue to operate from it current corporate offices in Schaumburg, IL.

The move is concurrent with that of Tokyo-based parent company, Kyowa Hakko Chemical Co. Ltd., which will officially change its name to KH Neochem Ltd. on the same date.

“This transition marks another milestone in our organization’s growth and commitment to serve both established and emerging markets in the Americas,” said Jiro Suezawa, president of KH Neochem Americas. “While our name may have changed, we remain dedicated to making significant contributions to the productivity and financial success of the many clients and industries we serve. With those goals in mind, KH Neochem Americas will offer the highest quality products available, while operating with even greater cost efficiency, responsiveness and flexibility.”
