Message from President
― Towards The Proactive Company with enterprising and daring ―
As a specialized trading company that deals in a wide range of “production equipment” that supports worldwide manufacturing of machine tools, industrial equipment, cutting tools, etc. as well as “consumer goods” that provide a comfortable environment in various buildings, such as homes, offices, facilities and factories, lifestyle goods that add richness to people’s lives, etc., the Yamazen Group has contributed to solving issues and enhancing the quality of life for customers around the world.
Our purpose of “Pioneering a new future, with you all,” which is our raison d’être in society, clearly states that we will pioneer a new future with all of our stakeholders.
Furthermore, our corporate vision of “Leading worldwide manufacturing and enriched lives,” which presents the Company’s vision for 2030, expresses our strong desire to pioneer a sustainable future together with our partners in the supply chain.
In order to realize this vision, we have formulated the group-wide strategies “talent management strategy,” “DX strategy.” “green strategy,” and “logistics strategy.” For our sales strategies, we are promoting business centered on “close customer relationship strategy,” “transformation strategy,” and “digital integration strategy.” Of these, “talent management strategy” is the foundation of each strategy,and “management of fostering personnel,” which has been stated as our management philosophy, is the most important initiative for trading companies and Yamazen.
Moreover, the three-year medium-term management plan “CROSSING YAMAZEN 2024,” which started in April 2022, was formulated based on backcasting from our vision for 2030 and the four strategies. By blending the know-how cultivated by each business division and thoroughly pursuing “comprehensive strength,” which will flexibly provide the value desired by customers, we will generate new, unique value for the Company.
Currently, many unpredictable events, such as geopolitical risks as well as energy problems and financial markets, are overlapping in the global economy, and the state of the global economy is rapidly changing while being affected by the mutual impacts of these events. Because we are in such a period, we believe that it is necessary to take a “daring” stance that proactively adopts new things and takes on challenges in uncertain times with bold decisions and actions. Furthermore, as The Proactive Company that implements strategies and tactics that look toward the future with accumulated information and rules of thumb, we aim for sustainable growth and the enhancement of medium- to long-term corporate value by reciprocating the trust and expectations of society.
