The KOKUYO Group was established in 1905, which was only a store producing covers of account books (Japanese books) for general use in Japan at that time. Later, KOKUYO Group was engaged in the production of Japanese account books, western account books and memo pad. A solid foundation for the enterprise was laid based on the paper manufacturing industry. After the middle period of 20th Century, the business scope of the company was expanded from paper products to all writing materials, office supplies and store furniture and the company has grown up into the largest supplier of comprehensive office supplies in Japan.
KOKUYO’s stationery business has always focused on providing value to the customer, and to maximize that value we have adopted an “axial” value chain business model which links together development, production, sales and distribution.
KOKUYO’s furniture business is involved in the production and sale of office furniture, store fixtures and furniture for public spaces, as well as the configuration of various kinds of public and commercial spaces.
In the office mail-order business, centered on the “Kaunet” office mail-order business in Japan, the Company has developed diversified businesses such as mail-order businesses for individuals, a wholesale business, electronic purchasing systems, and the operation of information sites and aims at contributing to customers by providing ‘things (mono),’ ‘systems,’ and ‘information.’
