Showa’ means “finding a balance between different elements” in Japanese. This principle is much more than just a formula; it is at the heart of our approach and requires full control of all stages. SHOWA is the only company that fully controls the design and manufacture of its protective gloves. Every day at SHOWA we continue to innovate to provide each wearer with a product that meets expectations. This autonomy, impervious to competitor methods and concepts, is based on constantly surpassing what has been done before, ensuring that everyone enjoys comfort and optimum safety.
Mr. Tanaka, the founder of SHOWA in 1954, embedded the following key elements in his founding philosophy and vision:
“Corporate strength is gained with our respect for harmony, by taking responsibility for our actions and by focusing on being the best person we can possibly be within our individual capabilities.
Each member of the SHOWA family must have integrity and the empowerment to build trusting relationships within our company and, equally important, with our customers.”
This business philosophy, when diligently practised, inspires mutually prosperous connections with our customers.
Today, SHOWA is renowned for both quality and innovation. Our technology has forever changed our industry, what our hands are capable of and the impact we make on our environment. We have achieved this by utilising the latest resources in technology, understanding PPE standards, and assuring our customers that we will not settle for anything less than the highest level of quality hand protection, every time. This foundational belief is one of the major reasons that SHOWA’s products are well-known, respected and worn by millions of people around the world. We pioneer the quality, performance and protection to give ordinary hands extraordinary abilities.
