Initiatives in Hokuriku, where we were founded

In the 1960s, we called for the opening of a Kanazawa Port to develop the regional economy
and started a movement along with Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, and the industrial world.
This contributed to the port opening in 1970.
We also participated in a redevelopment project for the Kanazawa station-front area the following year.
We continue this corporate stance today,
proactively working to invigorate the region and carry on and develop its culture.

Example initiatives

Supporting Ishikawa/Kanazawa Spring Green Music Festival / Supporting sports events like the Kaga Hyakumangoku Two-Day Walk / Supporting the women's volleyball team PFU BlueCats (part of the V.League) / Participating in regional events such as the Hyakumangoku Odorinagashi (Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Festival) / Donating educational ICT equipment to schools (a Mitani Sangyo 90th anniversary project) / Putting on lectures by well-known people at the Mitani Information Fair and Mitani Air Conditioning Seminar, business contests and workshops.

Initiatives in our second hometown of Vietnam

Vietnam, where we have had business bases since 1994,
is so important to us we could call it our second hometown.
We hold the industry-government-academia public meeting Aureole Conference,
which has a theme of human resource training,
every year to contribute to the development
of Vietnam's economy and its industrial competitiveness.
We also are active on the cultural front,
including supporting a project to repair and preserve paintings
that are Vietnamese national treasures and pass them on to future generations.

Example initiatives

Aureole Conference / Aureole Fair / The Nguyễn Phan Chánh Painting Repair Project / Supporting the soccer tournament "Vietnam-Japan International Youth Cup U13 in Bình Dương Province" / Joint Research with the Japanese Department of Foreign Trade University (certified as a Japan-Vietnam Diplomatic Relations 45th Anniversary Project)

Activities to support disaster-affected regions

When a large-scale natural disaster such as an earthquake or torrential rain occurs,
many people are immediately impacted and must endure a long and difficult time
before they can return to a peaceful life.
Regardless of whether or not these numerous disasters affect our business,
as members of society, we at Mitani Sangyo strive to do everything
we can to support the psychology recovery of those impacted.
Since the 2011 East Japan earthquake and tsunami,
we have presented people suffering in the wake of the disaster with tableware manufactured
by our associate Nikko Company as well as providing financial donations and hosting creative workshops
for children who lost their parents in the disaster and their families.
