BARI-SHIP ～ For the prosperity of Imabari, a City of Maritime Industry ～
In May 2009, the first shipping news event in the west part of Japan, BARI-SHIP was held in Imabari city in Ehime Prefecture, where our Head Office is located.
There are major international shipping news events abroad, such as Posidonia in Greek, a country of Ship Owners, and Nor-Shipping in Norway, but Imabari city is also a preeminent "power" of Shipowners. BARI-SHIP was started to vitalize the shipbuilding and maritime industry in our city and to promote public understanding of it.
BARI-SHIP has two goals. One is to offer a chance for the shipping, shipbuilding and marine equipment industries to promote their newest technologies, and another is to entertain and familialize the local citizens to such industries. Several shipbuilding companies and factories of maritime equipment organized the excursions around their worksite. We also, invited local people to the tour at the shipbuilding yard, and more than 3500 people visited us and enjoyed the special events.
Onmaku Festival ～ A major entertainment for the local communities ～
Every year our employees take part in Onmaku Festival, a big festival of Imabari city.
During Onmaku Festival, you can enjoy modern dance music during daylight, and traditional dance music in the night, joined by more than 200 people from our company. For this event, our shipbuilding yard schedules a time to practice this dance after the business hour, which has became a symbol of the summer for our company.
We value a relationship with the local communities and commitment to it, and being its active participant is one of the important ways to tighten it.
