Since its foundation, for over 110 years, NODA has consistently aspired to be a company that can bring about even greater contributions to society.
Serving as a materials manufacturer, our products have included printed plywood released in the 1960s, which was favorably received in Japan; NODA Siding, the first hardboard exterior wall material in Japan; and NODA Lath-Cut, labor-saving mortar substrate.
Even now, as a manufacturer of building materials, we are leveraging the skills and know-how cultivated as a materials manufacturer for domestic in-house production of medium-density fiberboard (MDF), as well as plywood made with Japanese cypress. In addition, at NODA's subsidiary, Ishinomaki Plywood Manufacturing, we produce plywood made with Japanese pine.
In modern times, environmental consciousness in manufacturing is indispensable. Notably, in recent years, the use of wood materials has been expanding not only in residential spaces, but also in various other spaces, such as stores, offices, and lodging facilities, and public interest and the need for wood is increasing.
One of the major themes in the manufacturing of our products is for us to meet the needs of the non-residential sector, in addition to being environmentally friendly.
In order to create a better future through our contributions to the achievement of the SDGs, we will continue to be committed to efforts that keep the environment in mind, with the mission of taking the comfort of wood from the home, and bringing it to all sorts of spaces.
We will also further improve the quality of our sales services, in order to be the manufacturer of choice for our customers. As there are many different types of building material, we will respond swiftly and conscientiously to customer questions, concerns or problems, so we can communicate with our customers to decide which products they should select.
With “providing better products, at lower prices, and delivering them faster” serving as the foundation of our activities in both manufacturing and sales services, we will assist our customers in order to make the creation of comfortable spaces into a reality.
