Cement business

The Aso Group : 130 Years of Tradition

130 Years of TraditionThe Aso Group adopted its Group management stance on April 1, 2005. Our cement business, the core of the Group, established a joint venture with Lafarge of France, the world's leader in building materials, in 2001. In spite of the difficult economic climate, it continued to leverage the strong points of both firms to improve profitability through a strategic combination of bold selection and concentration. In 2012, Aso Corporation acquired part of the Lafarge's stake in the joint venture. Aso Cement continues to enjoy its technical alliance with Lafarge under the renewed technical support agreement while continuing to reinforce its operational excellence and provide quality products and services to meet customers' needs.
The highest decision-making organ for the Group outside of cement operations is the Group Management Committee, which works to heighten overall Group value through the formulation and implementation of a multi-faceted strategy. The Group Management Committee is composed of a number of officers from Group firms, under President Aso of Aso Corporation, and works to advance Group activities in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and with full appreciation of corporate responsibility to society.
The many companies and business divisions have been grouped into three independent strategic units by their business characteristics, and common management issues and strategies:

  • Medical Unit: medicine and health
  • Professional Unit: education, human resources, social welfare, and information technology
  • Facility Unit: real estate, construction, regional business, manufacturing and installation

Through agile, strategic and multi-faceted management, the Aso Group is fulfilling its mission to help realize new social systems, and growing as a corporate group that will make a real contribution to society in this age of transition.
