President's Message
Nobuyuki Minami President We strive to achieve our goal to make Oshima shipyard one of the largest supplier of bulk carriers in the world.
Oshima shipyard is headquartered in Oshima-cho, Saikai city, Nagasaki prefecture which is situated at the western end of Japan and we have to constantly make every possible effort to keep abreast of changes occurring on the international scene in this field.

The market we have to face is not only domestic and regional one but the global one. At the same time, however, we have kept in mind the fact that Oshima shipyard is one of the indigenous industries deeply rooted in Nagasaki-prefecture.
We will contribute to the revitalization and development of local communities in the vicinity of Oshima shipyard by constructing “Oshima bulkers" and in a bid to accomplish this contrirbution for people to live an afffluent life in the country and in the world, we are willing to join hands with shipping companies in the world..
