Corporate Slogan『Sansha Teiritsu (Triparite Balance)

Daiichi Kinzoku’s corporate slogan is Sansha Teiritsu, or Tripartite Balance.

Tripartite refers to the company, the employees, and the customers. The image of balance between the three parties derives from the ancient Chinese tripod vessel. The slogan represents prosperity for the company, the employees, and the customers. In other words, the company’s interests are in the employees’ interests and the customers’ interests. The three parties are inseparable; each is essential to one another.

Tripartite Balance encapsulates our wish for eternal growth and progress.
