Message from the president

The multi-function machinery trading company flying through the future with “Kotozukuri” (opportunity creation) by global expansion.

Bridging the Future through Global Development

Since its foundation in 1963 as a machine tool trading company, our company has expanded its business, focusing not only on the machine tools but also on the industrial plant and machinery. Amid recent growing demand for clean energy, we have added energy and environment-related equipment business, such as solar and biomass power generation plant and equipment, to our main activities.

Starting in fiscal year 2017, we initiated a new medium-term (3 years) management plan “KGK Pride 2020”. Cherishing our 53 years of history, we always think ourselves into our reformation and innovation, and we are going to launch new era of Kanematsu KGK Corp. with productivity enhancement and awareness-raising. “KGK Pride 2020” targets on consolidated sales of JPY 80 billion in 3 years to become a company with long-term forecast for annual sales of JPY 100 billion. As a basic strategy to achieve this goal, we are now enhancing customer- and community-based sales expansions, consolidating the domestic profit foundation, and promoting overseas expansions with Global Business Division newly established in April, 2017. Through our global network, 19 domestic offices and 15 overseas offices in 8 countries, we establish and improve our organizations responding to the needs of further deepening globalization.

Functions required for general trading companies are also changing in this deepening globalization. By responding to various customers' needs for overseas business as well as by performing business transactions, we provide comprehensive support ranging from business cooperation between customers and overseas companies, overseas expansion, creating new business. We call it “Kotozukuri” (opportunity creation) and we will keep on working to create business opportunities in close relation to our customers. In addition, cultivation of human resources called for "Kotozukuri", is also our main theme, we put together an organization to continue developing human resources.

To be a company making contributions to global society, Kanematsu KGK Corp. will continue to grow as a multi-function machinery trading company organically combining machine tool business, industrial plant and machinery business, energy and environment-related equipment business, and supporting engineering functions.
