Striving to become a “Professional Design & Engineering Firm” of world-class.
As of July 1st 2021, I assumed the position of Representative Executive Officer and President, replacing Shota Hattori, who led the company for 19 years since 2002. I am looking forward to working with all of you on our collaborative projects.
Makoto Hattori, Shota Hattori’s father and Ph.D. in Engineering, founded the company as a structural design office in 1956. Since then, for more than 60 years, we have been advocating “a professional design and engineering firm that bridges academia and industrial world”.
In other words, we think of ways to apply academic knowledge to our society and utilize it to answer social issues. What we have continued is to give a social dimension to academia and to bridge the gap between the academic and practical world.
Today, there are a variety of issues that are considered social challenges. These include aging of social capital, declining birthrate and aging society, climate change and extreme weather and the consequent intensification of natural disasters, realization of a carbon-neutral society, and the reform of work styles. The global spread of infectious diseases since last year has further highlighted our social issues and accelerated the transformation of the entire social system. In response to these changes, we utilize the engineering knowledge we have cultivated over the years to grasp precisely the needs and challenges of our society, and promote “Innovating for a Wise Future”, a future vision and thought that we address in cooperation with the society, and do our best to contribute to the realization of a society that protects, secures and supports people.
We would like to thank you for your continued support of our company.
