Our Company / Message from the President

The business environment surrounding our Taiyo Nippon Sanso Group is constantly undergoing rapid and radical changes. In May 2014, we developed a long-term vision to respond to these changes and to ensure sustainable growth and further enhancement of the value of the Group. Our long-term vision envisages revenue of one trillion Japanese yen. As part of this vision, our medium-term management plan, Ortus Stage 1, was implemented for the three years that started in April 2014, and it was determined that it was time to focus on "reinforcing our corporate base." Measures have been implemented to accomplish structural reform with a focus on our operations in Japan and to expand our business in the overseas markets, which are expected to grow in the future. Beginning from April 2017, Ortus Stage 2, which will last for four years, started.

Under Ortus Stage 2, as a sequel to Ortus Stage 1, the Group will tackle "acceleration of growth" and aim to further enhance its global competitiveness, and establish a solid position in the industry for the Group.

The Taiyo Nippon Sanso Group has a strong business foundation and technological capabilities gained throughout its history of over 100 years, as well as a track record of productive business operations worldwide for more than 30 years. The Group intends to strengthen its earning base and expand business spheres by implementing new measures free from conventional concepts while effectively utilizing its own assets.

As "The Gas Professionals," the Taiyo Nippon Sanso Group has a social responsibility of supplying gases stably and safely to its customers throughout the world. The employees and management of the Group will do their best to fulfill this responsibility and to further enhance the corporate value of the Group. Your continued understanding and support are sincerely appreciated.
