Message from the President

President, CEO & COO Koji Yamamura

Since our inception in 1914, the Yamamura Group has grown from a glass bottle manufacturer into a major container manufacturer that places importance on contributing to a recycling-oriented society. In 2014 we greeted the 100th anniversary of our founding. In order to ensure another 100 years of success we are pursuing strategic business development. Our motto in this endeavor is “Towards a Global YAMAMURA: Conveying Yamamura's Heart and Technology to the World.”

Our many years of experience and strong brand recognition in the glass bottle industry has allowed us to expand our business into plastic closures and new glass and grow into a group enterprise that will form the foundations for future growth. In terms of container manufacturing, we are emphasizing expansion into the vibrant and growing Southeast Asian region and other overseas markets.

We will continue to meet and create demand for glass bottles (the star pupil of the recycling world) while fulfilling our responsibility as a leading Japanese container manufacturer to develop recyclable products that match today's needs.
