Message from the President

An uncompromising commitment to monozukuri
– the art of making things – is our corporate DNA.
To Our Shareholders and Investors:
On March 20, 2019, Shinwa Co., Ltd. was listed on the first section of both the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the Nagoya Stock Exchange. That the company was able to become listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange just one year after being listed on the second section in March 2018 is due entirely to the support and patronage of our business partners, shareholders, and other stakeholders, and you have my heartfelt gratitude.
To our many new shareholders, I also express my sincere thanks for supporting and holding high expectations for the company's growth.
We began in 1977 as a manufacturer of scaffolding. Scaffolding is visible only while building construction is ongoing, but it is a requisite product sustaining the safety and lives of all persons involved in construction.
We devote effort to developing products that play a role in improving safety and productivity at construction sites, and thanks to your support, the Shinwa Catcher wedge-type scaffolding for which we launched sales in 1988 has come to enjoy the top share in the system scaffolding industry.
Our Materials Handling Equipment Division, which we created in 2003 based on the manufacturing expertise we have cultivated, meets many customer needs related to conveyance, and along with improving our manufacturing technology, of course, we have also been boosting our proposal and planning capabilities to enable us to provide products to customers in a wide array of fields, including automobiles, precision equipment, and agricultural and marine products.
We aim for corporate growth that is steady and sound. As an enterprise whose technology and products, though completely lacking in flashiness, are essential to society, our regard for monozukuri – the art of making things – will remain long and uninterrupted, and we hope to maintain an existence that enables us to grow along with our customers.
Taking these exchange listings as an opportunity, we intend to contribute to society through an even greater awareness of our social responsibilities on the part of executives and employees and through the manufacture of even better products, and to this end, we look forward to the continued support of our shareholders and investors from a long-term perspective.
March 20, 2019
