message from the president

Building homes that last a lifetime is our mission.

Since our establishment in 1960, our employees have been united in their efforts carrying forward the motto “manufacturing products to satisfy our customers with our unique technology.”

We aim to manufacture “unique products characteristic of Joto” incorporating our spirit of flexible thinking and approach to the unconventional, developing housing components and construction methods based on the opinions of our customers and construction sites while also aiming to build “durable homes.”

On the other hand, if you turn your attention to the circumstances surrounding society, it cannot be said that a bright future is promised for the construction industry. However, we are determined to proactively cultivate new markets and create demand, never forgetting that pioneer spirit at the time of our establishment.

We will step up our efforts to develop products of high functionality and high added value, and promote community-based and proposal-based sales activities to accommodate requests from our customers and construction sites.

Your continued support and partnership would be greatly appreciated.
