JAPAN INDUSTRIAL PARTNERS, INC. was established in 2002 to support the revitalization of Japanese companies. Since that time we have provided capital and management support for business carve outs (company splits) from large companies and also capital for the restructuring of stand-alone medium-sized companies.

Over this period, our cumulative investments total 30 businesses, mainly in manufacturing, but also in a wider range of industries, such as food, distribution, and services. And we have employed a variety of approaches to investment, including corporate carve-outs and MBOs. In monetary terms, our investment total exceeds 600 billion yen.

Following the burst of the economic bubble in the 1990s, Japanese companies faced the existential challenge of slow growth in the domestic economy, while coping with the rapid rate of globalization, increased competition, and the rise of developing economies.

Despite these challenges, we are convinced that there are many Japanese companies with the technology and the products to compete effectively in the global market.

Also, despite a declining domestic market, there are companies that can grow by developing products that meet the new and diversifying demands of consumers.

In either case, we see an opportunity to help these companies grow and develop as they adapt to this new environment.

When making an investment, we strive to support development by first paying special attention to creating the conditions for the business to fully demonstrate its true potential, and, second, by making the business more rewarding for management, employees, shareholders, and all other stakeholders.

We intend to contribute to the revitalization of the Japanese economy through our investment activity, and we look forward to your continued support and guidance.
