Contribution to Regional Society

DMC is involved in the vitalization of regional society, the restoration of areas damaged by natural disasters, and social contribution activities centering on the cultivation of the next generation to realize a sustainable society.

DMC has factories in Japan and Indonesia with a head office in Tokyo and business bases in Osaka. Based on recognition of the importance of deepening communication with residents in the community and establishing favorable relationships for the further expansion of our business, we promote cooperation with local governments and companies to contribute to the development of regional society and fulfill our responsibility as a corporate citizen.

Social Contribution Activities in Japan

  • Tasaburo-ichi ( Exhibiting a large touch panel at local store events)
  • DMC Group participates in council meetings held among companies at Shin-Shirakawa Business Park, where our Shirakawa Factory is located, to increase cooperation and the exchange of information as well as deepen interactions such as participation in events hosted by Shriakawa City Commerce and Industry Department. DMC contributes to problem solving and regional vitalization in cooperation with local governments and companies through this council.In addition, in May 2019, we exhibited our products at a festival event held to celebrate the debut of a new rice variety, Yudai 21 (newly harvested), produced in DMC’s hometown, Fukushima. We have provided an internship program for students in local communities to contribute to the creation of employment since FY2017. In FY2019, 10 students from two schools participated in this program.

In addition, DMC also contributes to regional vitalization through a wide range of approaches including co-sponsorship of local firework festivals.

In addition, DMC participates in the “eyecity eco project” organized by HOYA CORPORATION Eye Care Company to collect empty cases of contact lens from 2019. Empty cases collected by DMC are recycled into reclaimed polypropylene at recycling plants and used to produce a wide variety of recycled products. Furthermore, the profit from recycled products is donated to the Japan Eye Bank Association. In FY2019, we collected about 3,300 empty cases (weight: 3.3kg).

Social Contribution Activities in Indonesia

  • In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, DMC’s Indonesia Factory provided 150 boxes of food, clothing, and other daily necessities for those in need in the local communities. Factory staff wearing masks and gloves handed the boxes to individuals at the factory’s futsal area while maintaining social distance.

  • Donating relief goods

DMC Indonesia Factory also donated protective clothing (gloves, masks, and gowns) to local medical centers to reduce the shortage of medical equipment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue working on a wide range of social contributions aiming to coexist with regional society.
