Wako Shimojima, CEO

The Shimojima Group is a specialist in wrapping products and associated businesses. Through these businesses, we aspire to improve the value of our products, create a new wrapping culture, and propose enriching lifestyles to our customers.

Our corporate philosophy is “Conduct every business activity from the viewpoint of customers,” a spirit that has remained unchanged since our foundation in 1920. We have maintained this philosophy as the basic approach that supports the Shimojima Group, while providing products and services that satisfy our customers and seeking at all times to be of value.

We continue to work in this spirit. At the same time, we aim to provide products that consider the environment and take other initiatives in our efforts to contribute to creating a rich, comfortable social life through wrapping products.

In 2020, we will celebrate our centenary. As we reach this milestone, we will remain committed to meeting our customers’ requests, complying with laws and regulations, and managing our businesses in a way that enables us to respond flexibly to changes in society. In doing so, we are grateful to receive your continued support.
