Company Visions

For the 100th Anniversary (FY2022) of our Establishment



President's Message

President Yoshiro Tominari

The Toho Gas Group focuses on supplying environmentally-friendly natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to customers mainly in Aichi, Gifu and Mie Prefectures. Our group’s operations in a wide range of fields support the lives of people in the region and the manufacturing activities of companies operating there.

The business environment surrounding our group has been changing dramatically. In April 2016, the electricity market was fully liberalized, followed by complete liberalization of the gas market in April 2017. Although competition has intensified even further, the natural gas market is expected to grow further as an environment-friendly energy source.

Under these circumstances, our group will accelerate efforts to realize a “robust gas business” and “further growth,” both listed as major goals in the medium-term management plan (target period: FY2014 to FY2018). In addition, by responding to changes in the business environment flexibly and appropriately, our group aims to achieve sustainable growth.
To establish a “robust gas business,” we will follow the basics of the gas business-stable gas supply and safety and security. Furthermore, we will strive to strengthen our relationship with customers mainly by expanding our services. Moreover, we will work on making our business operations more competitive through the procurement of energy sources at reasonable cost and the improvement of business efficiency. By implementing all these policy measures, we aim to enhance our comprehensive business capability.
To attain “further growth” of our group, we will expand gas service areas by extending our city gas pipeline networks, and strengthen our sales of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and LPG over a broader area. In addition, we will expand our business fields by stepping up our home renovation business and comprehensive utility services, and strengthening electricity sales.

Through these efforts, the Toho Gas Group aims to become a company that continues to be trusted and chosen by customers. We will do our utmost to contribute to regional development and grow together with the region.
We truly appreciate the continuing understanding and support of our shareholders and investors.
