Message from the President

With a view to creating new value

In 1887, at a time when Japan had just embarked on its headlong rush towards modernization, SHINYEI was established in Kobe, a city saturated with the sort of enterprising spirit that befits a veritable haven of economic and cultural vigor. Since then, the company has expanded its network to countries and regions around the globe. In terms of business contents, SHINYEI has evolved from a company for which the primary industrial activity was originally the selling of raw silk into a company that is now engaged in various fields – from textiles to foodstuffs, materials and electronics – that have a positive impact on the lives of people.

This world has become one in which information can be instantaneously conveyed to others, such that the sense of value with which businesses, companies and objects are regarded is changing at a dizzying pace. In accordance with a vision that entails the creation of new value through creative actions, we shall forge the future with our bountiful ideas and our determined resolve to meet the challenges that confront us.

Through our technological and information-based capabilities, we will coexist with our clients in mutual prosperity, enhance the profile of our company, reward our shareholders, ensure that our employees feel a sense of pride and joy in their work and boost our collective group strengths as a company that contributes to the community and society at large and as an entity with solid foundations laid in various sectors. On this note, I respectfully ask for your continued guidance and encouragement as we go forth.

Koji Ono, President
