Principles

SSA is part of a large group of companies,

but we operate as a small business in our community.

Even though we are a young facility – manufacturing since 2007 – the foundation for our beliefs come from a seed planted many decades ago within SEKISUI.

The SEKISUI 3S Principles – Service, Speed, Superiority – are the foundation of everything we do. They are the source of our evolution and development as a company and they’re the building blocks for our mission, our vision, and our values.

At SEKISUI, our employees ground their work in the values of our 3S Principles.

Service

At SEKISUI, we serve our stakeholders by creating social, environmental and economic value through responsible business practices.

Speed

At SEKISUI, we accelerate innovation by eagerly taking on new challenges, adapting to change and staying ahead of the times.

Superiority

At SEKISUI, we contribute to society by helping to solve social issues with our superior technologies and quality.

“Large differences will arise between human beings who uphold their own ideals, and those who simply go with the flow throughout the span of their lives. The same principle applies to business. A company has a great impact on the business community only once it is able to project its basic policy on business management and mobilize its employees based on those ideals.”

In order to reflect this intention, the 3S Principles of Service, Speed, and Superiority were established as the motto for the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group.

MISSION
