Since its establishment in 1919, KROSAKI HARIMA has played a vital role supporting Japan’s core industries, especially the iron and steel industry through manufacturing and sales of refractories under the corporate motto, “better, faster, and less expensive.”
We also have operations in the fine ceramics business based on our material technology developed from refractories and life space ceramics business which aims to offer comfortable and beautiful life spaces, thus pursuing the various potentials of ceramics.

President's Declaration at the launch of the Internal Control System

Since its establishment in 1919, KROSAKI HARIMA has played a vital role in supporting Japan’s core industries, especially the iron and steel industry, through various changes in the management environment.
To show such presence and value as an enterprise at home and abroad, we formulated a “Mission Statement” which serves as the direction of the enterprise activities of the entire group. In the statement, we clearly referred to our social responsibility, which is to be fulfilled as the management policy of the group.
In order to meet the recent social demand for sounder business operations, the group will launch an internal control system headed by the president. I hereby declare that we will run the system effectively in order to conduct proper, legitimate and efficient operations and continue to be a corporation which fulfills its social responsibility.
With this declaration, the top management will further promote business ethics. If any situation against the spirit of the “Mission Statement” occurs, I myself will work to solve the problem, to quickly and accurately disclose information to society, and to ensure accountability, and upon determining the source of competence and responsibility,impose strict disciplinary action against those held responsible,including top management itself.
I sincerely hope that every employee will practice the “Mission Statement.”
