President’s Message

Kawada Industries, Inc. has existed for nearly a century. Since the beginning, we have adhered to our principle of “integrity, technology and precision”, which is why we are one of the most respected industry leaders in the world today. Over the decades, we have become renowned for our expertise in assembling steel bridges. However, in recent years we have begun to focus our efforts on our architecture, construction and steel structure divisions, as well as our robotics and environmental businesses.

We remain one of the few companies anywhere that can offer a full range of services for sophisticated steel or concrete-and-steel projects, including design, fabrication, erection and maintenance. Indeed, many of our structures are listed among the world’s finest bridges, stunning steel towers and landmark high-rise buildings, as well as sporting and cultural spaces, and transportation facilities. We are pioneering builders of space-and-material saving PreBeam™ structures, for either bridges or buildings, and are the leading supplier of SC Deck™, the innovative steel-concrete bridge deck system.

At Kawada Industries, Inc., we constantly explore innovative ways to protect the environment by harnessing nature’s natural resources in a sustainable way. Midori-chan™, our revolutionary greening system, has met with huge success across Asia Pacific and further afield, as has GeoNeo™, our geothermal heat pump air conditioning system, and our solar technology solutions. We are also conducting ground-breaking research into humanoid robotics and how artificial intelligence can be harnessed to benefit society at large.

The world is undergoing a paradigm shift. Our emphasis on manufacturing and new technology, as well as the unique and wide range of business areas within Kawada Industries, Inc., has created a powerful synergy that enables us to be truly flexible in our approach to projects. In these days of great change, I am honoured to be able to lead Kawada Industries, Inc. into its next century of operations, and to ensure that we continue to play a valuable role in society through an intelligent combination of innovation and technology. I am proud of how far we have come from the steel forge in 1922, but I am even more excited about our next phase of developments as we look towards building a better, greener tomorrow for everyone.

Tadahiro Kawada President
Kawada Industries, Inc.
