President

Continuing to provide communication
that has a powerful impact on human emotions and feelings

Takeshi Tsumura, President

It has been more than 100 years since our company was first founded in 1917 to produce signs for movies. During that period, as a pioneer in the field of large-format printing, we have continually expanded the possibilities of visual communication including the development of the first large-format printing press in Japan and the start of a large-format inkjet printing business. In recent years, we have made a number of advances one after another, including adopting a new corporate identity and other in-house innovations, active investment in new equipment, and expanding into the global market. These efforts have produced steady results, and we are now beginning to write a new phase of our history. The goal of our company is to support the visual communication of our customers in order to become a company that creates a breakthrough level of high added value.
Large-scale visuals that completely fill a large space have the ability to produce a powerful impact on the emotions and feelings of the people who see them. We believe in the power of such large-size visual communication unrestrained by printing methods, and are working to make the world happier and more beautiful. Please expect great things from us as we utilize the technical strengths and idea strengths that we have constructed over more than 100 years in order to continually advance our business.
