I still remember the sight of the pier construction site that I visited for the first time after joining the company. When I saw the company’s formwork and support materials assembled in the sky several tens of meters above the huge site, I felt it was “cool”. The senior who accompanied me said, “There is no other company that can do this much processing in-house.” I believe that the pride of each person in their work is the property of Kouyou Shokai. Our history has been a series of challenges since our founding. Bending veneer manufacturing, challenge to steel processing, in-house product development, and establishment of construction department. While all of them are risky if you think in common sense, and there is no guarantee that they will succeed, we have been working toward customer convenience and expanding our business domain. Based on this challenging spirit that can be said to be our DNA, we will continue to increase what we can do and move toward growth. Every time a building is built, there is someone’s desire to build it. Under such circumstances, we are involved in the base concrete formwork. Although it is only a part of the whole, we are aiming for a system where all employees can unite as a company so that we can firmly connect the batons passed from the building owners and give shape to their thoughts. That is the mission we have been given, and we will continue to move forward.
