Company History

Founded in 1902 as Noda Lumber House, we have changed our type of operation from a lumber mill to plywood manufacturer, and now a building material manufacturer.
With “sincerity” being our motto, we have released a number of innovative new products by accurately grasping the needs of the age and meeting the customers’ requirements.
We have been promoting the reduction of formaldehyde, the use of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) as a recycled housing material, and the total coordination of building interior materials, which are now common practices in the industry.
Our pioneering development work has been achieved by concentrating our resources on the main business since the foundation of the company until now and contributing to society consistently. We will keep inheriting this corporate culture.
