Message from the CEO

CEO Toshiyuki Ashida

Striving to be a corporate group that grasps the needs of its customers and contributes to society

Ever since our founding in 1939 under the trade name of Kuriyama Rubber Company, rubber and plastics have been at the center of our product and business development. We expanded into North America in the 1960's, and ever after we have continued growing our business globally in Central and South America, Asia, and Europe. In 2004, we achieved our long-held goal of being listed on the Second Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and in 2012, we shifted to a holding company structure under Kuriyama Holdings Corporation.

Today, Kuriyama Holdings pursues overseas business in the three regions of Asia, North America and Europe, which are overseen by four core operating companies, under whom are 14 subsidiaries and 8 affiliated companies comprising rest of the Kuriyama Group.

In the more than 80 years since our founding, the Kuriyama Holdings Group has sought to be a company that earns trust from everyone by following these three management philosophies:

1. A company that unceasingly develops based on customer's trust
2. A company that builds a prosperous lifestyle for employees and is loved by them and their families
3. A company that always seeks innovation of products and technologies

Regardless of the tumultuously changing environment we have seen in recent years, these philosophies continue to unify everyone in the Kuriyama Holdings Group as we continue to work to deepen the level of trust bestowed upon us by our customers and stakeholders.

Your unfailing support and encouragement are truly appreciated by all of us.

Hironobu Nose, CEO
