Message from the President
It gives me great pleasure to greet you all on behalf of everyone at Karinpia Co., Ltd.
As a concierge for a life of affluence and wellbeing, we at Karinpia wish to keep our customers inspired with products that meet the needs of the times.
Many people tend to believe that making products is “something difficult.” But you don’t have to be special to be creative. The feeling of awe when you see beautiful scenery or the tug on your heart during emotional scenes in a film; it is this kind of pure heart that we all have within us that we need to start making something.
Addressing the three aspects of business, i.e., planning, manufacturing, and marketing, with a natural attitude, we plan products that make everyday life better, enrich people’s minds, and inspire their dreams, while shaping the times and representing people’s ethos by acting flexibly.
After becoming affiliated with Doshisha Corporation (listed in the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange) on July 25, 2006, we have reinforced our management foundations even further and enhanced our system for end-to-end operational management from product planning and development to delivery.
In the world today where things are changing so fast that people often lose sight of the richness of their heart and mind, we will remain focused on the planning and development of “genuine” products without being misled by the flood of information. We continue to challenge ourselves to become a company that contributes to humanity, the global environment, and a bright future.
