Representative greeting

代表取締役社長 陳 国
President and CEO 陳 国

The evolution of technology will continue to accelerate innovation and transformation in the industry. At IREX, our vision is to “Establish a Platform for Japan’s Resource Recycling Industry”, and we will continue to challenge the norms and contribute to the industry with the undying goal of creating a better future.   
Each and every one of us has the responsibility to work towards a better future by shifting to a totally novel approach, moving away from the global economy of mass production and mass consumption that has continued for the past 250 years.

“The key to making that shift is in the Venous Industry.”

IREX is continuously thinking of the best way to exist harmoniously with the future and society as a “recycling company”, and has established a “Resource Recycling Share Factory” as one of the solutions. It is a sharing platform that can be transformed into a next-generation infrastructure prepared for a future of the Internet of Things that transcends all social constructs and industries of the present.

We will establish sustainable links between businesses and across industries. We believe that cooperation between different industries on the supply chain, involving sharing information and resources as well as collaborating more intimately, will become a catalyst for the creation of new values that can further advance the global transformation. It’s now or never to design ways to turn various “waste” into “resources” and putting them back into circulation, revise the way we manufacture products, rebuild the supply chain, and shift from hydrocarbon fuel to renewable energy sources.
