Hideto Yanase, President and COO
Based on our achievements since the foundation in 1947, and the trust we have built with customers and suppliers, Tomoe Group has entered a new phase of growth. As the global economic power structure changes significantly, this is an unpredictable era. A prerequisite in this environment is to take on challenges to generate new value. Corporate growth stems from the ability to quickly identify needs in this changing and unpredictable era and respond flexibly, regardless of past business records. One of the greatest strengths of Tomoe Group is our co-creation ability that generates new value through mutual consensus-based cooperation with our customers and suppliers. Meeting customers' expectations, we, Tomoe Group, are committed to connecting companies with different technologies and individual characteristics and building the future.
