Masa Oguchi

President, Daishin Corporation

Born in Nara Prefecture, Japan, in 1973, Masa Oguchi currently lives in Osaka.

Upon completing his education in Australia, Oguchi joined a trading company in Osaka specializing in the export of chemical products. During this period, he worked under the mentorship of experienced staff knowledgeable in the skills necessary to consistently provide sound customer-centric services in the chemical export field, which focused on fully understanding the buying process from the customer’s perspective rather than that of the seller.

In 2004, Oguchi established Daishin Corporation. Founded on the principal of providing only the highest standard of customer service, valued by both customers and employees, Daishin has since built a network of strong relationships throughout Japan’s chemical products industry that have been leveraged to quickly supply overseas customers with optimal chemical solutions and expertise from Japan—especially in Asia, Europe, and the United States.
