Construction of 'Center Building"


Looking ahead into 21st century, Fuji Oil is commencing a construction of our new building which will function as the hub center for Fuji Oil and Fuji Group companies.

We have already been promoting a group management both in Japan and abroad, and are expecting further global expansion especially in Southeast Asia. This new building (tentatively named Center Building) is being built within the site of Hannan Plant located in Izumisano City, Osaka, which is in the vicinity of Kansai International Airport, and will be the strategic foothold for the era of this globalization.
