Message from President

Valuing both people and relationships, innovating at the foundations of society, and creating new value

On this path that we have been walking for over 100 years and several decades since the founding of our company, we have a continuous history of placing importance on both people and relationships, supporting customer enterprises and social foundations, and working towards innovation. As a result, we have now grown beyond the logistics business evident from the meaning of our name, and have earned the trust of many customers in a wide range of business areas.

Even so, our commitment to on-site capabilities as our top priority, no matter what the business, remains unchanged. At the various sites at which we conduct our work, each person thinks of their family and friends and makes efforts to safely deliver high-quality services better than anyone else. One can observe a ceaseless effort to exceed, one step at a time, the expectations of our customers and society. At the KONOIKE Group, we aim to innovate daily and assemble individuals who perform their work with passion. “Striving to go beyond expectations.” This is the thinking behind the Group’ s shared brand promise, and represents the resolve of a Group that has worked to create a new era over more than a century.

The KONOIKE Group has established our “2030 Vision” , which defines our medium- to long-term objectives for achieving the aims set forth by our “Brand Promise” and our corporate philosophy, “pursuing innovation at the foundations of our society that creates unique value, driven by respect for humanity and relationships of trust.” The primary message of the 2030 Vision is “People, leveraging technology to reach for new heights.” Our efforts to this end involve not only the adoption of the latest technologies, but also the application of the technical skills developed by our workers on-site as shared assets through the entire Group. Through these actions, we strive to offer unique services of ever higher quality based on a foundation of enhanced safety and security.

At the same time, we are working to ensure the happiness of every one of our workers, as we truly believe that realizing fulfilling ways of working is tied to the creation of a sustainable social foundation. Individual happiness leads in turn to a favorable global environment and to happiness in the future. By effectively applying technologies and the accumulated skills of our treasured personnel, both those from the past and those yet to come, we will join with like-minded people to realize a better future. Expect great things from the KONOIKE Group of the new era.

Representative Director, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Tadahiko Konoike
