We will continue to identify
needs of customers and
society accurately and have
been aiming to contribute to
development of the social
infrastructure.

First, on behalf of KONDOTEC, I would like to express sincerest sympathy and wish for a quick recovery to those who are affected by COVID-19. I also would like to extend deepest gratitude to healthcare workers and essential workers on the front lines of the fight against the spread of COVID-19. I hope to go back to the normal life as soon as possible and revive Japan's economy, which shrunk due to voluntary restrictions and business closures.

KONDOTEC INC. marks 74 years since its foundation. We sincerely appreciate the support of all stakeholders including, customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders.
Founded in 1947, KONDOTEC INC. started business by manufacturing hardware for vessels. We expanded business by selling products into the civil engineering and construction industry. Our business has expanded into a wide range of industries, such as electrical equipment, railway, agriculture, forestry and indirect materials in factory. We provide products and merchandise to customers in a wide range of fields and strive to contribute to development of the social infrastructure to carry out its responsibilities as a corporation bases on the corporate philosophy – “We strive to contribute to the creation of an affluent society by nurturing our employees, who would shape the future, and by conducting corporate activities with innovate and pioneering way.”

Response to natural disasters

Natural disasters such as a typhoon and heavy rainfall occur yearly in Japan. We do not know when and where emergency supplies are requested, due to the increasing frequency of natural disasters. We stock inventory tarpaulins, flexible container bags, etc. at operating sites nationwide, as well as inventory at the back yards in Osaka and Kanto, so that we can respond to requests from emergency supplies anywhere in the country.

Response to the need for weight reduction

In the field of construction and civil engineering, the labor shortage has become more serious. The age of the workers is higher, and the employment rate of women is also getting higher. At such sites, the need for weight reduction of materials is increasing, and we need to respond to such voices as well. In our manufacturing division, we achieved up to 27% weight saving on scaffolding chains to review materials. In addition, we realized weight saving on bolts to reduce the number of bolts per box (less than 20kg).

Response to maintenance demand

Demand for maintenance and repair works is expected to increase while new construction demand is expected to decreased due to an aging population and declining birth rate in Japan We focus to meet demand related to scaffolding which is essential in the construction sites. In 2021, we established an intermediate holding company, Nippon Scaffolding Holdings Co., Ltd. , and place three subsidiaries which provide scaffolding services under its umbrella. Nippon Scaffolding Holdings has established a structure that cover a wide range of projects, including detached homes across Japan, large-scale buildings and civil engineering structures like bridges through cooperation between the subsidiaries.

The ability of proposal

Due to the influence of COVID-19 infection, people who can not go out are actively buying supplies online shopping. If we want to buy items that we often buy, such as daily necessities and consumable items, online shop is convenient. However, there are many cases where we do not know which item is safe and efficient at first. Therefore, we will talk with our customers and propose better products and merchandise responded to needs of customers.

The world is still in midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. To go back to normal life as soon as possible, we would like to contribute to society to offer and provide the right products and merchandise such as, dairy commodities, construction materials and packaging products and merchandise to meet the requirements.
We continuously strive to respond to diversifying customer needs and would greatly appreciate your continued understanding and support.
