Unceasing challenge to achieve a sustainable society
Daiwa House Industry was founded in 1955 on the basis of a corporate mission of contributing to the “industrialization of construction.” The first product to be developed was the Pipe House. This was followed by the Midget House, among other new products, opening up the way to Japan's first prefabricated housing. Since then, the Company has expanded across a wide field of operations, including Single-Family Houses, its core business, Rental Housing, Condominiums, Commercial Facilities, and general business-use buildings. Daiwa House Industry has to date supplied more than 1.6 million residences (single-family houses, rental housing, and condominiums), over 39,000 commercial facilities, and 6,000-plus medical and nursing care facilities.
During this time, we have consistently kept in mind the product development and provision of services that are useful and will bring joy to our customers. By always being a company that is essential to society, we have developed into the major corporate enterprise that we are today.
Today, as a group working to co-create value for individuals, communities and people's lifestyles, we should develop a strong basis for stable and continuous growth in response to the ever changing needs of society. In Japan and in countries and regions around the world, such as the U.S.A. and ASEAN countries, we have begun laying the foundations that will facilitate business development aimed at contributing to local communities. Moreover, we plan to further expand our operations through incorporating upstream, middle, and downstream operations, including peripheral domains of existing businesses, into the group, and creating Plus-2 and Plus-3 businesses.
Backed by the pioneering spirit we forged since the founding of our company, we plan to continue to push forward with business expansion that is always two steps ahead, and take on challenges toward achieving a sustainable society.
In closing, Daiwa House Industry has not forgotten the many people that are still living in temporary housing since the Great East Japan Earthquake and 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake. We plan to continue to carry out activities that will contribute to speeding up the reconstruction of the disaster-ridden areas.
