Message from the President

SHIGEMATSU WORKS reached the 100th anniversary of its foundation.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your continued patronage and support in helping us to reach this important milestone.

SHIGEMATSU WORKS first began as a private company established by our founder, Teizo Shigematsu in 1917. Since then, we have manufactured and sold the personal protective equipment with a particular focus on respiratory protective devices such as particulate and gas respirators and the others such as chemical protective clothing as a pioneer in this business field.
Based on our company policy, "Protecting workers' health and supporting their welfare", SHIGEMATSU contributes to the community by protecting the lives and health of workers in various industrial sectors, fire department staff and other rescue workers. By doing so, we also support the continued welfare of their families.

Today, the importance of risk management is growing steadily, not only industrial disasters, but also natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and epidemic disease, terrorist events and other acts of violence. Due to this background, SHIGEMATSU has a growing role in terms of its social responsibility.

Accordingly, I believe that the 100th anniversary of our foundation is more than just a mere milestone, but is in fact a significant juncture to reborn.
Our goal is to continue maintaining and promoting a SHIGEMATSU brand that stresses the importance of quality, while also becoming a company that plays a vital role in both the domestic and the overseas markets.
With our heart of gratitude thanks to your support, we are working to build stronger foundations that will enable us, in the next 100 years, to fulfill all our social responsibilities and other obligations.

I hope that you look forward to SHIGEMATSU WORKS in the age to come, and I would appreciate it if you would give your continued business and support.
