JAPAN - Zoetis Global Poultry has announced the extension of a partnership agreement with Japanese BioDevice distributor, Ishii Co., which has seen more than five billion eggs vaccinated during the past 20 years.
In addition to distributing the existing portfolio of Zoetis’ Embrex BioDevices in Japan, Ishii Co. will now offer the extensive range of Vaccine Manufacturing Devices, used for egg-based vaccine production for both humans and animals.
Paco Ortiz, Sr Vice President Global Poultry, says Zoetis is honoured to continue a partnership that has been established over two decades.
"We are proud to work with Ishii Co., which as a group has continued to deliver outstanding customer service and support during the past 20 years. Their technical expertise in the Japanese market is unparalleled and they continue to offer extensive device support that customers have come to know and trust."
Masahiro Takeuchi, of Ishii Co., says the company, which runs its own hatcheries, is the leading supplier of BioDevices in Japan.
"This is a great milestone in our partnership and we look forward to continuing to work together in the Japanese market.
"We were very pleased that we have continued the business and personal relationship for 20 years. From the research and development agreement in the first decade, to the more recent agreement for leasing and maintaining devices, we are very proud of our partnership with Zoetis."
Jorge Perez-Martinez, Animal Health Division Director, Zoetis Japan, says the success of the partnership is driven by the commitment from both companies to deliver the best solutions to the Japanese poultry industry.
"Our two companies share similar philosophies in terms of customer support and a dedication to provide innovative solutions. Together, over two decades, we have built a strong offering to the market – one that we are honored to continue."
