We thank you for your continued support and patronage.
Under the corporate principles "Generate affluence for people and society" and "Maintain company growth by providing high level technology and service," we have been developing our business with the aim of popularizing safe and convenient plastic containers for about 40 years. We are proud that we have been delivering injection stretch blow molding machines and molds to clients in more than 130 countries, contributing to the wellbeing of people all over the world.
Our company history is also the history of PET bottles. ASB started its business in 1978, one year after the first introduction of PET bottles in Japan (1977). Since then, the lightweight property, safety, and recyclability of plastic materials, especially PET, have been widely recognized around the world, leading to the widespread use of plastics. Plastic containers are used to contain a great variety of products, from refreshing beverages to liquors, seasoning agent, detergents, and pharmaceutical agents. We expect that the use of plastic containers will be become increasingly popular in the future in a diverse range of fields.
In the midst of the complicated social situation, we may face many difficulties in the days ahead. But we are committed to deliver even more convenience to our customers around the world, constantly reminding ourselves that we should never be easily satisfied with the status quo. We would like to ask for your continued support and encouragement in the years to come.
