Hello! My name is Peter Opdahl. I currently have the honor of being President at Ito Corporation. In that role I oversee both our domestic Japanese operations and what we do at our local subsidiaries across the globe. I’d like to take a few minutes here to talk a little about how we view ourselves, what we do, and what you as a customer can expect if you work with Ito Group.
Ito Corporation’s history since its founding in 1946 has been one of growth and innovation. Much of our success has come from the very simple idea that if you do what is right, people will continue to want to work with you. This very simple core philosophy drives every decision made by every member of Ito Group.
Doing what is right is not always easy. In many cases it requires a long-term view in order to see the advantages of not cutting corners and of making sure that things get done right the first time. This in turn demands a working environment that attracts the best people in the world and provides a structure in which they can excel. We spend a lot of time and energy trying to create such an environment and workforce — something we believe you will notice immediately if you work with us.
Please use the menu at the right to find greater detail on who we are, what we do, and why we are a good partner. In the end, I think it comes down to a very simple reality; People want to work with other people that have the same values they do. At Ito, we’ve been successful doing the right thing for more than 65 years, and we fully intend to do the same good work with the same integrity and professionalism for as long as there is a demand for those qualities. I expect that to be a very, very long time.
