PLUS Group regards the environment as a catalyst for yielding business models

The Establishment of the system in which “Social Optimality” equals “Environment Optimality”

We established our corporate principle for creating the “System of Social Optimality” in which we eliminate any inefficient or overlapping processes within stages like sales activities, order processing, shipment and all the way to the goods’ arrival at the customers just in order to achieve the customers’ satisfaction.
Believing this system will lead us to the sustainable development of the self-subsisting economy and
society, i.e. the environment optimal system that the 21st century is going after, we are strenuously working to create or invent this system in ever y one of our business domains.

Development of “Green Products”

We are also working on the development of environment-friendly products in such methods as designs for easy / separate disposal, use of recycled materials, disuse or restraint of toxic chemicals, longer durability,
etc.

Vietnam Plant

Material Recycling & Reclaiming, and Reduction of Material Consumption

At our manufacturing plant in Bien Hoa Industrial Zone in Vietnam, we reprocess plastic waste generated from plastic injection molding, using a robot arm to feed waste to a pulverizer for converting into reusable
plastic material.
Improvement to the replacements of polypropylene sheet rolls for
production of clear folders by using 800m-long rolls instead of the
previous 600m has reduced the replacement frequency by 10 times and plastic waste 9kgs daily.

Maebashi Plant

Utilization of Wood Residues From Large-scale Dust Collector

At our ATELIER Factory located inside the Maebashi Plant, large quantities of wood residues discharged from production process through ducts and collected in the dust collection system are converted into pellets of about 10cm
diameter, then delivered to local dairy farmers for use as cowshed bedding alternative to straw traditionally.
Composted manure, a by-product being the mixture of woodwaste and animal excrements is then utilized in cultivating pasture where cows graze, materializing a natural recycling process. In addition, the purified air effluence from the dust collection system is put to full use in running the factory's circulatory systems such as airconditioning, ventilating, and the like.
