Message from the chairman

Norihiko Kondo
Spreading into the World
the venous recycling system.

There is no bad opinion about a company that seeks for profit. However, a company that doesn’t choose the means for their own profit is called foolish. I doubt about the traditional capitalist society. Is there any happiness at the end of the money game? Is there richness beyond desire? Companies that are selfish, will be someday not alloyed. Without the spirit of altruism, we cannot co-exist with the society. It is not possible to continue. Meanwhile I was on the business for about half a century, I learned a lot about it. Companies should ask themselves what business they are made for and why they exist in this World. Everyone, even companies, live with a mission. The mission of the Kaiho Industry is to establish the vein industry and to create a recycling oriented society.
There is a big mission to leave this beautiful Earth to the people that will born in the future. As long as you have the mission and act, Kaiho Industry will still be allowed to exist in the society. I believe so. The time flow. Society is moving. Kaiho industry also has to change. I changed the company management from me to the current President, and now it is time to shift drastically the style. We are talking boldly about changing things. We do not want to become a corrupt company. To fulfil our mission, in order to be a company that can help people, we want to be a flexible group. Please pay attention to the future change and evolution of the group of Kaiho Industry.


Kaiho farm

The trigger about agriculture is to be an "employment for life."

The agriculture department was created by Kondo, our Chairman, thinking in preparing a new workplace for those employees of Kaiho Industry that will eventually retire.
In order to make the best use of the limited resources, we developed a "waste oil boiler" that uses 100,000 litters at year of oil from the recycled vehicles in our plant, this makes possible to harvest tomatoes year-round in a greenhouse. The harvested tomato has a high sugar content, being sweet and delicious.

Kaiho Recycle Festival

Spreading the "Mottainai” culture for the future

Every year since 2011, we have held the "Recycle Festival" in August. In order to convey feelings of gratitude to all the people in the community, it is a festival to make the general public know about the recycling business from the viewpoint of "clean up". At the car dismantling show, there is always a great expectation for the operator that manipulates with great skills a large heavy equipment.

Hakui City natural cultivation

Connecting the future with food.

Satoyama in Ishikawa Prefecture. "Natural cultivation" is a key word for the agricultural business conducted in Hakui City. To commemorate the establishment of the Hakui-type Natural Cultivation Executive Committee in 2017, we held a symposium at the Kanazawa City Culture Hall. Mr. Akinori Kimura, the founder of the natural cultivation, gave a talk at this symposium.
