The NAGASE Group updated its philosophy structure as one initiative toward creating sustainable growth and improving corporate value. We kept the current NAGASE Management Philosophy in place while defining a new NAGASE Vision and NAGASE Way (employee behavioral guidelines) to create a shared awareness within the NAGASE Group. We have launched a new global branding project and created a new NAGASE Slogan to more plainly declare the NAGASE Vision: Bringing it all together. This slogan represents our commitment to bringing it all together into an encompassing whole: our business domains, our operating regions and countries, our people, our products, our technologies, and our services. By spreading word of the unique NAGASE concept through our branding project and organization-wide activities, we hope to create a strong personal vision within each employee. It is this personal vision within each person that will help us reach sustainable growth.
