Message from the President
Moriroku Group celebrated its 360th anniversary on March 10, 2023. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to our customers, business partners, and other stakeholders for their support and cooperation.
Since 1663, when we began distributing indigo and fertilizers, which are natural raw materials, from Awa (Tokushima), we have been working with the development of the chemical industry in Japan as a chemical trading company. The courage and can-do spirit of our predecessors culminated in the manufacture of plastic parts in 1958 and the expansion of our production base to North America in 1986, and our group has grown significantly to date. In 2017, the company was listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and its transition to the Prime Market in 2022. As a public company, we will firmly focus on constructive dialogue and value co-creation with our stakeholders.
Faced with new threats derived from the coronavirus infection and the Russia-Ukraine issue, our business environment and people's lives and awareness have changed dramatically. The values of the past have changed completely, and we are indeed entering an era of turbulent. The group will continue to be a company that is needed by society by achieving sustainable growth by continuing to take on the challenge of transform while anticipating changes in the global environment, and by strengthening management base with higher standards of governance.
We will continue to inherit the "DNA of change" cultivated by our predecessors throughout our long history, and aim to become a "400-year company" by taking up the challenge of "CREATE THE NEW VALUE." We appreciate your continued support.
President and CEO, Moriroku Holdings Co., Ltd.
