Message from CEO & President
Thanks to the support of our customers and stakeholders, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Nisso Industries. Looking back over the 50 years since the company was established, no account of its history would be complete without factoring in the shipbuilding market in the early stages of the company’s activities. The trust and record of achievements built by Chairman Tatsuo Ono in the shipbuilding industry before the establishment of the company served to consolidate and support the company’s foundation.
After weathering the oil shock of the early 1970s, Nisso Industries made inroads into the construction industry in search of new markets and, without pause, tackled the challenges of reaching the very highest architectural levels in the industry and extending its achievements to build a bright and prosperous future. Products like the Angel's wing and Column Stage served to drive the company’s rapid growth in the steel-frame scaffolding. During the course of its history, the company developed the 3S Modular scaffold, the driving force behind the success of Nisso Industries today and which made it possible for the company to advance into civil engineering. Nisso Industries has been a trail blazer in new fields at each stage of its growth, and I believe that it is this ability to adapt that has made the company what it is today.
While Nisso Industries has followed this course to the present day, I believe that the management environment has reached a turning point. Looking at areas where restoration and recovery activities are currently underway, for example, demand is limited. Not only that, but because the process of restoration and recovery is limited to specific areas, meaningful decisions on a nationwide basis are absolutely impossible to make.
If one considers whether or not markets will grow not only in the construction and civil engineering industries, as well as in public works projects, I feel that there is absolutely no doubt that we cannot expect such growth. I believe that recognition of this situation is shared throughout a wide range of industries.
