Shimizu’s Unchanging Approach: Striving to Build Ever Better Projects
Shimizu’s more than 200-year history began in 1804, when founder Kisuke Shimizu launched a carpentry business in the Kanda Kajicho district in Edo (now Tokyo). During its early years, Shimizu appointed Eiichi Shibusawa, a renowned industrialist of the Meiji Era (1868-1912), as senior advisor and based its management style on his “Rongo to Soroban” (“The Analects and the Abacus”). This work set forth the concept of how businesses can contribute to society based on a firm union between ethics and economics, thereby achieving fair returns and attractive growth.
Construction technologies and methods have advanced rapidly since that time. Still, the approach of striving to ensure growth based on quality products that satisfy customers remains the unchanging foundation for all Shimizu activities.
Today, society is in the midst of dramatic, fast-paced change.
Customer needs for buildings and other structures continue to change and diversify. These needs include responses to global environmental issues, measures against earthquakes and other natural disasters, and contributions to customer business activities.
Shimizu seeks to increase customer satisfaction and contribute to society by providing value that surpasses all expectations.
Each structure Shimizu builds incorporates ideas that are drawn from a wide range of parties while centering on the needs of our customers.
Shimizu identifies these ideas and applies them in a way that breathes new life into its structures.
By applying such passion to each and every project, Shimizu is ensuring that generations to come can be proud of the work we do today.
