We want to thank our customers, stockholders, and all of those who worked with us and gave SK Chemical their attention and affection during the year 2015.
During the past year dealing with uncertainty became a daily routine due to events such as oil price fluctuation, increase in the U.S. interest rate, and China’s economic insecurity. In this environment SK Chemical constructed a PPS factory, began selling its cell culture influenza vaccine, and revealed the launching of SK Plasma as a central factor for growth.
In 2016 SK Chemical made securing the competitiveness of its fundamental businesses its number one priority. To promote continued growth and new power we would like to focus on the following three areas:
First, we will strengthen Operation Excellency.From the establishment to the operating stage we will seek optimization, and we will minimize unexpected setbacks through the pursuit of Operation Excellency. Now we will reexamine and improve our operations at their most fundamental level and boost our operation capacity to the Global Top Tier level.
Secondly, we will clarify the roles of each sector to increase profit. We will continue making efforts so that our marketing sector will improve profitability and our production sector will reduce manufacturing costs. Each member of our team will clarify an achievement goal that is feasible to reach from their position, and everyone will move forward together to expand profit.
Thirdly, for the success of our core businesses we will expand global partnerships. We are in nonstop competition with Global Top Tier companies. To get ahead of these competitors in the global market we will continue to build strong partnerships with clients to secure sales pathways and stabilize our business structure.
SK Chemical will continue to challenge itself to grow and change this year. As we move one step closer to achieving our company’s vision, we ask for continued encouragement from our shareholders, customers, and all those involved with the company inside and out. Lastly, we wish health and happiness for you and your families.
