About corporate philosophy

Ken Onishi has a philosophy that has been passed down for more than 120 years since its founding.

"Permanence is the power of the company" "Coexistence and co-prosperity"

A company has social existence value only if it continues to operate no matter what. To that end, it is important for us and our customers to think that they will prosper together. If your business goes well, it will have a positive effect on us. A company will never grow if it is run by one person. "Coexistence and co-prosperity" is also related to the idea of ​​"Sampo Yoshi" (seller good, buyer good, public good), which is known as a business knowledge. In other words, you and your business partners will prosper, and society will also prosper.

We will not forget this philosophy and will continue in the spirit of coexistence and co-prosperity.
