Small AND Best

Founder Tadahisa Muramatsu (1939-2012) set up Kirikan LTD. in 1973, with a firm determination of contributing to modern Japanese companion animal veterinary through supply of the worldʼs quality equipment, instruments, and other essential items for modern veterinary practices. It has to be noted that early stageʼs educational activities by the Japanese and American veterinarians, where modern veterinary medicine concepts were first brought into the country, laid a foundation of later flourish of the industry. We are proud that we were one of the supporting companies in this prominent project, through supply of the surgical instruments for workshops.

Our determination of dedication to further advance of the Japanese companion animal veterinary is increasingly holding true. This is our core value.

With our manifest mission deep in our mind, we are constantly in search of the products that are efficacious, novel, quality, representing good craftsmanship and professionalism, that has great value vs cost, that satisfies to niche demands, and that contributes to further advance of Japanese veterinary and enrichment of peopleʼs life.

As a trading company, we also find it a great pleasure to bridge the world through sharing the great products and technologies across the world. We are always open to the contact from the overseas manufacturers who resonate with our mind.
