As Komori approaches the 100th anniversary of their founding, they believe that they need a compass for their continued sound development,” says President and CEO Satoshi Mochida.
“The purpose of the Komori Group that has now been established is a clear expression of Komori’s reason for being that asks ourselves, what are Komori’s strengths, what are our potentials, and how can we contribute to society?” he adds. Komori will move forward over the next 100 years with a purpose that can resonate with all stakeholders.
As part of the 100th year anniversary Komori created a special logo with meaning. The entire design is divided into 10 sections in a variety of colours to show the possibilities of printing and the progress of each decade. The rising curve of the mark is dynamic and represents future development.

“The printing technology that we have cultivated for 100 years expands the possibilities of paper and electronic media, enhances the economic efficiency and reliability of society’s activities, and helps reduce the environmental impact. By pursuing and commercializing printing technology, we will respond quickly to customer expectations, support society, and create Kando with value that is a step beyond expectations. Komori will share this purpose with our customers, business partners, employees and other stakeholders around the world, and contribute to the sustainable growth of the Komori Group and the solution of environmental and social issues,” he further said.
