Message from top management
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our customers, shareholders, and business partners for their continued support of the DCM Group.
On March 1, 2021, the DCM Group merged its five home improvement retail business companies to form DCM Co., Ltd. Since the merger of Kahma, Daiki, and Homac in 2006, Sanwa joined the group in 2015, and Kuroganeya in 2016. This was followed by a capital and business alliance in 2017 with Keiyo, as the circle of DCM expanded greatly. During this period, we have also made steady progress in developing our business foundation as a home improvement retail business. Meanwhile, changes in the social structure and the lifestyles of our customers, as well as the trend toward digitalization, are advancing at a speed far beyond our imagination. We will never be able to overcome these changes if we stick to the conventional framework, thinking, and past successes. Therefore, as a culmination of our efforts to improve its business infrastructure, DCM has integrated its five operating companies and created the infrastructure to nurture and develop new businesses. In this way, we will be able to respond more quickly to various changes.
We have also established a new management philosophy with the transition to the new Group structure. Our corporate motto, which is the DCM Group’s raison d'être, is "Service for society," "Creation for the customer," and "Unity for the community." Our management philosophy is "Do Create Mystyle: Giving Shape to Your Dreams for Life," and our action philosophy is "Demand Chain Management For Customer," based on our desire to be strongly aware of the perspective of customers.
As a year of new beginnings, FY2021 will be a new start for the DCM Group. By maximizing the know-how we have accumulated so far, we will focus on the following two measures: DIY specialization focusing on sales floor development and educational activities to promote DIY, and promotion of DX (digital transformation) to build long-term relationships of trust with customers.
Under the philosophy of DCM, the DCM Group will boldly take on the challenge of becoming an integrated company that makes people's lives more comfortable, for the benefit of society, our customers, and the community, with the spirit of service, creation, and unity and the perspective of customers deeply engraved in our hearts. We would like to thank you for your continued support.
