With wood construction materials as our main product, JK Holdings is a conglomerate that sells general construction material for housing and is conducting business under a corporate philosophy of “creating a comfortable and rich home environment.” Our group is comprised of 30 consolidated companies and 41 non-consolidated companies for a total of 71 companies (as of December 13, 2013). Looking at these businesses, the group can be broadly divided into wholesale selling of general construction material as its core business followed by plywood production and lumber processing business, retail of construction business, franchise business, general construction material, warehouse and transport business, along with other related businesses.
With over 200 distribution bases throughout Japan, JK Holdings’ main emphasis is placed on the distribution of materials that can managed effectively in its local areas. Also with sales offices in North America, China, Taiwan, Russia, Malaysia, and Vietnam, global development is being planned along with focusing on human resources development that can work in international business on the other hand.
Wood is a renewable resource, and because it can also be recycled, forest resources are indispensable. While not only trees but also lumber after manufacturing is used for furniture and other products, presently these items that involve carbon fixation are certified, so using large amounts of lumber efficiently is believed to be also essential for the prevention of global warming.
Our group handles wood construction material as our main product starting with plywood, led by KEYTEC Co., Ltd. and Akita Glulam Co., Ltd. As a group, we are steadily moving ahead with technological developments in order to construct medium-to large-scale buildings that eliminate the use of reinforced-concrete and steel structure for wood material. Our group will actively proceed with its efforts in preventing global warming by building a recycling-oriented society that uses forest resources such as lumber and wood construction material., As part of the work to conduct public relations activities and to spread the use of the newly developed technology, our group is giving full support to The Wood & Plywood Museum, non-profit organization. Our employees are also wholeheartedly cooperating and participating in the events at the museum such as workshops and tree-planting festivals, and these events are connected to raising the awareness of each employee.
During the Great East Japan Earthquake disaster on March 11, 2011, our local distribution centers for our group were damaged, but we received high marks and praise because without a single day of down time our customers were able to receive our products. Currently with delays in the Tohoku reconstruction effort, our group companies are working together hoping for the reconstruction to take place as soon as possible and are conducting activities that support the local disaster-stricken areas such as the construction of public housing and participation in care-camps for children suffering from the disaster. Also by supporting the “big 6 universities” in Tokyo, the graduate school of the University of Tokyo, Chiba University, and other universities, we are putting effort into developing young talent that can carry the housing industry of tomorrow.
Within the essential elements of “food, clothing, and housing” for people to live, housing is the most wide ranging, and our company recognizes that our mission is to revitalize the housing industry, which is lagging in its reorganization as an industry., We feel that merger and acquisition, which we have been promoting from the past, is necessary and indispensable for the future of our industry. For this purpose, our company, which is a pure holding company, will enrich the business management function of our group, and while working to improve management transparency and speed of making business development decisions, all the companies in our group will work together to form a corporate group that aims to improve overall strength and productivity. We will put our wholehearted effort into businesses that repay all our stockholders.
