Message from President & CEO of Saisan:
I am Takehiko Kawamoto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saisan Co., Ltd.
We would like to express our deep appreciation for your continued support and patronage.
Since Saisan was founded more than 70 years ago in 1945, Saisan has continuously implemented “Customer First Policy” while simultaneously adhering to maintaining a high level of “Safety and Security” in our operations. Based on these philosophies, we have provided customers with various high-pressure gases including LPG for residential, commercial and automotive fuels as well as many kind of gases for industrial and medical uses together with its related equipment.
Until several years ago, our main target business area was limited only to the eastern part of Japan. However, we have now started to expand our business area all over Japan. We have established several footholds in the Chubu (Central Honshu), the Tohoku (North Honshu) and the Kansai (West Japan) areas. As of June 2019, we have 99 sales office, 18 filling stations, 38 subsidiaries all over Japan.
As for the overseas projects, we have been successfully expanding our LPG businesses in Mongolia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Laos and Thailand. These achievements resulted from the effective utilization of our LPG safety control technologies accumulated in our long history. As of today, we have 9 subsidiaries in 8 countries.
Under the ongoing full liberalization program of the electricity sector in Japan, the retail electricity market for residential use was opened in April 2016. We have entered this retail market with a new electricity brand, named “Ene One”. We also have achieved some positive results until now. Following the electricity market, the full liberalization of the city gas sector started from April 2017. We entered the city gas market aggressively as well to become a comprehensive energy supplier. We have shared our corporate policy with all our company staffs that the Gas One group aspires to be the most accessible home energy partner for customers.
The following is our vision in the year of 2045 which will be the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation;
“Becoming a premier company in the Integrated energy and Lifestyle related businesses in our country and Asia-Pacific region.”
The Gas One group will try our best to achieve our Vision in 2045. We look forward to your continuous support.
President and Chief Executive Officer
