Chairman Letter

Dear Valued Customers and Business Partners

TAKARA BELMONT celebrates its 100th anniversary on October 5, 2021. It is because of all the parties involved in the hairdressing and beauty industry, dental and medical industry—including our customers, distributors and business partners in the world—that we can celebrate this milestone. We extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who has used our products and felt in
tune with our spirit of manufacturing, while walking together with us and showing us what improvements are needed.

Our company started its business as a foundry 100 years ago in an industrial area along the Kizu River in Nishinari, Osaka. Ten years later, we changed our main business line from the manufacture of cast parts for daily essentials such as clay charcoal stoves to the manufacture of barber chairs. This bold challenge led to build and strengthen the foundation of our current
business.

While we faced changing times and suffered from many natural disasters, we joined forces with our group companies to expand our business under the motto of “Supporting the beauty and health of people” and have grown into a company that sells its products not only in Japan, but also in more than 120 countries around the world.

Today, the world has changed drastically due to the coronavirus pandemic. While many industries are making a digital shift, not all operations can be handled online in the hairdressing & beauty industry and the dental and medical industry. These are industries where physical contact is the reality of the professional workplace. In this difficult age where there is no one correct answer, we realized anew that our mission is to pursue how we can support the real, touchable workplace. Nothing can replace the warmth that is produced by human touch. We will make every effort to continue to uphold this most important, enduring value and be a partner who creates the future together with professionals in the hairdressing & beauty, dental and medical industries.

As a manufacturing company in an industry that supports people’s lives, we launched a new project to realize a sustainable society. While aiming to achieve zero waste in our business, we will also focus on providing manufacturing education to children and contributing to the community that has helped us grow.

It is a universal value to live and enjoy a beautiful life. We will continue our business and social contribution activities over the next 100 years toward a better tomorrow and the realization of a beautiful life for our customers, partners, and everyone in society.

PROACTIVE ACTION TO IMPROVE CUSTOMER & EMPLOYEE SAFEGUARDS

NEW YORK, NY – Takara Belmont USA, Inc. takes proactive action to protect customers and employees amid COVID-19 outbreak by supporting greater social distancing with temporary office closures, work-from-home programs, and other wellness practices.

“First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe environment and encourage practices to protect the health of customers, visitors, employees, and others,” said Rachel de la Pena-Martin, Manager of General Affairs. “We ask everyone to follow CDC guidelines to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases.”

Takara Belmont USA will close their New York showroom and office, which is located at 17 West 56th Street, New York, NY. The short-term showroom closure will remain in effect between March 16 to March 25, 2020, which may be extended until March 30th or later, as more information becomes available. All eligible employees will work remotely to continue efforts to support customers and partners.

“Our customers, communities, and industry are all finding new ways to engage each other,” said Steve Hughes, National Sales Manager. “While we are taking steps to limit in-person interactions, we continue to keep an eye towards the future by expanding the services we offer and the way we can communicate.”

During the closure, the New York showroom team will be available to support customers via e-mail, phone, or video conference. Customers, partners, and other interested parties may contact the showroom by submitting an online request or sending an e-mail to their local representative. A few of our other showrooms and offices are currently considering similar practices, including reducing and/or rotating staff, and pre-scheduling customer visits to limit the number of simultaneous visitors in the showroom. Please contact your local showroom before your next visit.

“Adhering to the Takara Belmont standard means ensuring a safe and healthy environment,” said Shige Kaneyama, General Manager. “While none of our employees have tested positive for COVID-19 or show symptoms, we decided to close our showroom in the best interest of our employees and clients.”

Stay informed about COVID-19 symptoms, precautions, news, and more at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. Below are a few practices to keep in mind:

  1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
  2. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue.
