Business Strategies

We will keep advancing the overseas construction business and working to raise profitability.Business development strongly rooted in each country and region is key to achieving our targets. From the perspectives of selection and concentration of management resources and risk management, our policy is to focus on developing business in regions where legal systems, business practices, and socio-economic infrastructure have been established to a certain extent and political and security risks are relatively low.

In building construction, we aim to expand orders from local clients in Southeast Asia based on our Networks there. Additionally, we will train locally hired staff as candidates for future management positions and promote further localization at local affiliates. In North America and Oceania, we will actively work to win orders through local Group companies and partnerships with local companies and strive for market expansion.

In civil engineering, we are handling numerous large-scale infrastructure projects requiring strong technological skills in the regions where we are implementing business strategies. With our credibility, technological abilities, and large-sale project management capabilities, we are targeting further growth in infrastructure fields through local Group companies and partnerships with local companies in the same way as the building construction business.
