Creating a culture of glass use that will remain for 100 years for the next generation

Small- and medium-sized glass bottles, which we specialize in, are used mainly for foods, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Glass bottles have been used for a long time because of sealing performance that helps to preserve the contents, their natural materials and friendliness to people and the earth as they are recyclable.

However, such features are not the only reasons they have been used for a long time. I think it is a sense of luxury created by the texture of glass, the emotion of trying to cherish them because they can break if handled incorrectly, and the heart of trying to preserve precious items in glass bottles that have made glass bottles a part of our lives as a culture.

In other words, we are a company that creates a culture of glass bottles, and our biggest role is to pass on the culture of using glass bottles to the next generation. We will continue to further clarify and standardize quality standards, manufacture glass bottles that benefit customers, and make progress toward our 100th anniversary in 2041.

Thank you for your continued support and guidance.

President and Representative DirectorMasayuki Hasegawa
