Our Philosophy

For a long time, humans have been living in harmony with nature and using the benefits of wood for living spaces. But in the rush for more material wealth, people have lost sight of what is truly beneficial—at great loss to the environment.

At Eidai, we believe that real wealth is in realizing a better lifestyle with wood. We believe this is only achievable after establishing a sustainable society that coexists with the global environment.

We will continue to contribute to the realization of a wealthy, sustainable society through close partnership with people, communities, and the Earth.

Our Efforts

  • Together with the Earth

    We develop our business through the adoption of three unbreakable principles: use trees from sustainable forests, use wood without waste, and recycle forest resources. By adhering to these foundations, we develop environmentally-considerate products and contribute to a wealthy, sustainable society.

  • Together with Communities

    We help to create comfortable living environments with products that are safe and user-friendly for people of all generations. As a responsible member of the international community, we seek to help local communities thrive by respecting local diversity, providing employment opportunities, and supplying top quality products.

  • Together with People

    In order to propel Eidai to long-lasting, continuous success, we seek to build a corporate culture in which we can both develop talented personnel, and allow our diverse workforce to apply their unique strengths. Through the provision of safe and secure products, we contribute to richer, more comfortable lifestyles for all.

Business Operations

We endeavor to improve living environments and realize a sustainable society through our environmental creation business.

At Eidai, we continue to care for the environment, and use sustainably harvested wood resources, to ensure that our products are safe and secure for you and the Earth.

Towards Sustainable Growth in Corporate Value

Eidai was established as a plywood manufacturer in 1946. Since the company’s inception, we have been committed to providing high quality wood products, and today we develop and produce a comprehensive range of housing materials for creating living spaces to make your homes and lives more comfortable, including flooring, interior doors, highly functional system kitchens and wooden boards used as base materials with various product applications.

We aim to contribute to the realization of a wealthy, sustainable society through close partnership with people, communities, and the Earth.
In fiscal 2016, with the gradual recovery of the domestic economy, the housing industry exhibited an upward trend and an increase in the number of new housing starts underpinned by lower housing loan interest rates and various support measures designed to help people buy homes.

Amid these circumstances, not only have we upgraded our flagship showrooms in Tachikawa and Nagoya with a view to expanding our share in existing markets, we have also strengthened our sales strategies, with the goal of winning a bigger share of the housing materials industry. In addition, we have focused our efforts on promoting non-residential markets by developing our range of products aimed at the senior market and expanding it to include products utilized in kindergartens and nursery schools.

Conversely, the housing industry is forecast to struggle over the medium to long term with a surplus in housing stock, a declining population, and changes in the composition of the typical Japanese family. Indeed, we predict a decline in the number of new housing starts. However, we see these changes not as an obstacle but as a chance to innovate existing business structures and reduce our reliance on the number of new housing starts. Specifically, we are developing projects for the senior market, the renovation market, and the non-residential market. Furthermore, we are strengthening our overseas operations by opening a local subsidiary in Indonesia, which is expected to be a continually growing market.

Amid these dramatic changes surrounding the housing industry, we will strive to increase our corporate value and pursue sustainable growth by making the most of every business opportunity.

Going forward, our mission is to unite and cement our position as a trusted, comprehensive manufacturer of housing materials, providing products and services that make homes and lives more comfortable.
We are looking forward to your continued understanding and support.

Flooring and Staircases

Through the careful selection of raw materials, we develop environmentally-considerate products.

Using wood resources from sustainable forests, we develop and produce environmentally-considerate products such as flooring and interior staircase sets. Moreover, our unique, advanced technologies enable us to install high quality products like heated flooring and sound-proof flooring that ensure long-lasting comfort in mid-rise and high-rise apartment blocks.

Interior Doors and Storage Systems

Realizing state-of-the-art designs and quick delivery.

We strive to anticipate trends and offer consumers the latest designs for interior doors, closets, and shoe storage units. But it’s not good enough to just look good; we have an extensive range of products that are designed for easy installation and operation, too.

Kitchen and Bathroom Systems

Offering easy-to-use kitchen and bathroom products through our stainless-steel processing technology.

Stainless steel is the ideal material for kitchens and bathrooms, and our unique processing technologies make for highly functional system kitchens convenient for water use that last long and look great.

Particle Board

As one of Japan’s leading manufacturers, we create superior particle board while promoting the effective use of forest resources.

Particle board is a dimensionally-stable material that does not suffer from the warping typical of timber. As one of Japan’s largest particle board producers, we can recover and recycle more wood products, thus using resources more efficiently than most. Recycling materials in this way contributes to carbon fixation and thereby boosts environmental protection efforts.
