Masayuki Arioka, Chairman of the Board and Motoharu Matsumoto, President

Since the establishment of our company in 1949, we have contributed to the evolution of society by developing and offering glass products in demand at each period in time. Our production began with vacuum glass tubing for radios at the time of our establishment, and has now expanded to various fields that support the society, such as automotive and transportation, information technology and semiconductors, medical care, displays, lighting, energy, social infrastructure and home appliances.

On the other hand, the environment surrounding us has changed rapidly in recent years, so have the needs for glass. Given such circumstances, under the corporate philosophy “We strive to build a brighter future for the world by uncovering the unlimited possibilities of glass for more advanced creative manufacturing”, we aim to achieve sustainable growth while contributing to the development of society by creating various social values such as the reduction of environmental impacts, innovation of information technology, advancement of medical care and improvement of the safety and comfort of living. We will achieve them through our cutting-edge core technology as well as glass products with various shapes and functions created by such technology.

Our company launched our medium-term business plan “EGP2026” from fiscal 2022. Under a slogan of “Strong Growth,” we aim to become the world’s leading manufacturer of special glass by strengthening our corporate structure and manufacturing the world’s most environmentally friendly glass. The plan sets out five priority mesures for growth: “Strengthen the business platform,” “Flexible investment,” “Promote new businesses,” “Promote carbon neutrality,” and “Human resource strategy,” while aiming for net sales of 400 billion yen, operating profit of 45 billion yen and operating margin of 11% in the plan’s final year of fiscal 2026.

Going forward, we will continuously strive to build a brighter future for the world by uncovering the unlimited possibilities of glass. We look forward to your ongoing support.
