Engaging with Local Communities

Community activities

The Shindengen Group is conducting activities aimed at ensuring harmonious coexistence with local communities and maintaining their trust.

1. The Golden Order of Merit from the Japanese Red Cross Society(Shindengen Three E)

Shindengen Three E was awarded the Golden Order of Merit in August 2020 in recognition of over 20 years of cooperation with the Japanese Red Cross Society in the area of blood donation. The company holds blood drives twice a year. Although we refrained from participating in fiscal 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19, going forward we will continue working as a member of the local communities in which we operate to make blood donation more widely accepted and to support people who need blood transfusions.

2. Contribution to Education(Shindengen Thailand; Shindengen Vietnam; Shindengen Kumamoto Technoresearch)

In order to support the next generation, the Shindengen Group is making various social contributions to education.
In September 2020, Shindengen Thailand’s entire staff came together to clean and refurbish buildings at two schools in Suphan Buri Province and helped fund scholarships. Vietnam Shindengen and other companies in its industrial park donated supplies to local elementary and middle schools and provided scholarships. In Japan, after the suspension of the National High School Baseball Championship due to COVID-19, Shindengen Kumamoto Techno-Research applied to the news ticker support plan of the independently held 2020 Summer Kumamoto High School Baseball Championship to post encouraging messages.

3. Collaboration Featuring the Asaka Mascot Popotan (Shindengen)

Shindengen’s Asaka Office plays an important role in interacting with the residents and communities of Asaka. One way we have worked to build rapport with local residents has been the display of a poster featuring the Asaka mascot Popotan on the fence surrounding the site where our new Asaka Office was being constructed. The poster was created in collaboration with the city of Asaka. The Kurome River that flows through Asaka City is famous for its cherry blossoms. The poster uses this famous site as a background and promotes our goal of giving back to the local community through Shindengen’s eco-friendly business activities.

There are many Buddhist temples in Thailand, and Thai people have a strong affinity for these temples. Lumphun Shindengen considers building strong bonds with temples a way to contribute to the community. Employees visit nearby temples to donate fire extinguishers, offer guidance on their use, and provide education to instill basic fire safety knowledge.

Every year, the Shindengen Group factories proactively invite students to tour their facilities in order to give them a glimpse of what is it like to work for a manufacturer.

10. Donated a Step Bench to the Central Square in Asaka (Shindengen)

In March 2021, Shindengen issued private placement bonds handled by Saitama Resona Bank with the aim of achieving stable business growth. These are Private Placement CSR Bonds with Donations that enable the donation of supplies to local communities using a portion of the fees gained from their issuance. In April 2021, we opened a new office in Asaka, Saitama prefecture. To help develop the local community, we donated the Green Terrace step bench to the city. It is used as a place for relaxation for the people visiting the city’s Central Square, where the bench is installed.
