Corporate Philosophy

To cultivate happiness among people, the Tamura Group strives to be your one and only company by extracting unique and superior corporate strengths and continuously providing products and service that delight our customers and society.


Corporate Philosophy

Tamura's founding spirit of “Supplying customers with the world best products” is expressed in the phrase “the one and only company,” upheld as the corporate slogan representing Tamura's management philosophy. In April 2000, the Tamura Group Mission, structured into three tiers with Mission at the top, was established to be positioned alongside Vision and Guidelines. The Tamura Group Mission embodies “the desire to be a global company that is accepted by the international community” and “a source of pride for its employees and keeps the dream alive.” In January 2007, the Tamura Group Code of Conduct was instituted to outline the standards of thought and action to be adhered to in day-to-day activities that are envisioned in the Tamura Group Mission guidelines.
In March 2014, the Tamura Group revised its Code of Conduct to stipulate the Group's fundamental policy of giving due respect to the seven principles stated in ISO 26000, which provides Guidance on Social Responsibility, and pursuing seven core subjects.
Further, in October 2018, the Group stipulated the fundamental policy for achieving SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and identified SDGs as one of the priority issues to be worked on by the entire Group.
