Matsumotokiyoshi Kou-Shin-Etsu Co., Ltd. Aiming to expand the groupfs market share in the Koshinetsu RegionChairman Keiichi Okano President Hiroshi Ando We are proud of our community-based support through responding to an aging society and parallel establishment of dispensing corners!
In July 2009, Kenko Kazoku Drug Corporation merged with MAX Co., Ltd. to become Matsumotokiyoshi Kou-Shin-Etsu Co., Ltd. The former had a strong base in Nagano Prefecture, while the latter had most of its stores in Niigata Prefecture. By combining the two we have been able to utilize the strengths each had in their respective areas to offer our customers even better services. In addition, in January 2012, we merged with Nakajima Family Pharmacy Co., Ltd., which has a strong base in northern Nagano Prefecture, and in October 2015, ITAYAMAMEDICO Co., Ltd. from Yamanashi Prefecture to expand the scale of our business as Matsumotokiyoshi Kou-Shin-Etsu Co., Ltd. We cover all lifestyle needs of our customers by enhancing our lineup of food and daily goods, in addition to our core of health and beauty products. We also provide specialist services with a dispensing pharmacy located inside our stores which can fill prescriptions issued by hospitals, giving us a strength in the development of community-based businesses. By relocating the head office from Okaya City to Nagano City in October 2017, we are able to improve access and strengthen our management guidance for the Niigata, Nagano, and Yamanashi Prefectures area.

Revisions to the health care insurance system increased demand not only for prescriptions filed outside of hospitals, but also for functions in Health Support Pharmacies for the provision of outside calls, including home visits. We combine our expertise in handling prescription medications with the convenience of a drugstore to contribute to the healthy lives of our customers.

In this environment, the comprehensive care system that the Group is promoting needs to be rolled out as the gNagano Model.h This model will contribute to the health of all local residents and to local medical care, through health support initiatives in advance of our competitors and support for regular, personal care, home care, and sterile drugs preparations.
