Message from the President
My name is Koichi Ogata, and on April 1, 2015, I was appointed as Representative Director and President of Nitta Gelatin Inc.
Under the corporate slogan of “New Vision, New Direction” and the basic strategy of “Pursue the Highest Quality,” we will strive to reinforce the management base of the company. We have already made a number of investments in our production facilities and equipment aiming to establish and expand our global production platform, and we are now at the point where we should move to a new stage for further growth. This slogan aims to make a step towards the next stage where we will achieve a return on the investment. As for the basic strategy, excellent quality not only applies to the company's superior products but to sales and customer service, research and development, corporate management, employees and so on. Under this basic strategy, we will pursue the highest quality in all aspects of our business in order to enhance our corporate value and gain confidence from all the stakeholders of the company.
Recently, we have faced a severe business environment due to the impact of a weak yen and the high cost of raw materials. Under such circumstances, we consider the improvement of profitability to be our top priority. Our strategic objectives are as follows:
- Develop high value-added products
- Ensure optimal production, optimal sales
- Strengthen global business foundation
♦Towards Our 100th Anniversary
In 2018, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Nitta Gelatin. The company's strength lies in our policy of using our “proprietary technology” to keep moving forward with a never-give-up attitude, overcoming various hurdles. My responsibility is to lead Nitta Gelatin towards its 100th anniversary achieving further growth and to build a foundation for the continuing success of the Nitta Gelatin Group towards its next 100 years. As we move towards our 100th anniversary, you can expect to see continued development at Nitta Gelatin. Thank you for your continued support.
