CEO Message


Making a Difference to our World through Glass Technology Keiji Yoshikawa 


Since the foundation of Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. in 1918, the NSG Group has continued its evolution. While sharing the 400-year-old Sumitomo Spirit, we are operating globally and providing our products and services to the major markets of the automotive, architectural and technical glass sectors.

The Group’s Mission is to be a global leader in innovative high-performance glass and glazing solutions, contributing to energy conservation and generation, working safely and ethically. Glass has been produced in various forms for thousands of years and provides countless opportunities due to its versatility. Throughout its history, the NSG Group has been producing and supplying high quality glass and glazing solutions to the world.

In May 2014, we announced the NSG Group’s Long-term Strategic Vision and Medium-term Plan (MTP). Our strategic vision is to transform the NSG Group into a “VA Glass Company”. The MTP period is critical to the establishment of the Group as a “VA Glass Company”. The priority is to enhance our financial and operational performance while we shift to selling more value-added products as described in our Long-term Strategic Vision.

I believe the key to delivering the targets of our MTP is for everyone in our Group across the world to quickly grasp what our customers need, to understand accurately what values are desired in each market and to establish a robust cycle of development, manufacturing, sales and marketing. As we look forward to the centennial of the establishment of Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. in 2018, the Group renews its commitment to work as a team and to develop sustainable corporate value for the future.

We look forward to your continued support.
