The driving force behind Daiseki's growth

The Daiseki Group's journey to value creation

Daiseki was incorporated in 1958, before the word "recycle" had become commonplace, and immediately entered the lubricant manufacturing and waste oil recycling business. Since obtaining its license as an industrial waste treatment business in 1972, we have contributed to the construction of a recycling-oriented society under the mission of "making the best use of limited resources."
We will continue to contribute to the development of a sustainable society by helping resolve social issues as an environment-creating company.
