I would like to express my thanks for stockholders’ continued patronage.
Since our foundation, we have developed to date based on the corporate philosophy of continuing to offer valuable things to the world and the basic management policies of pursuing appropriate ways of living and doing things for further growth as a leading manufacturer of zirconium and meeting stakeholders’ expectations. As part of these efforts, we launched a subsidiary in Vietnam and associated companies in China for the stable supply of raw materials. Last year, we also launched DKK Logistics Corporation with the aims of facilitating distribution and reducing distribution costs. We steadily promote global management based on these group companies.
We, as a worldwide group, will continue to meet the expectations of stakeholders around the world and contribute to the development of the world economy and society in the 21st century by providing zirconium.
Stockholders’ further understanding and support will be greatly appreciated.
