Aiming to be the company that the world needs


Today, there have been growing expectations for companies to fulfill their social responsibilities as they work on business activities to increase corporate value and earn profits. In this context, compliance (with laws and regulations) serves as the guiding principle of corporate social responsibility. We set our own demanding targets and meet ever greater challenges to become a global company fulfilling social needs.

In pursuit of eco-friendliness

Throughout the history, human activities have been supported by the rich nature and generosity of our planet. In recent years, however, global warming has caused problems in different parts of the world, putting survival of mankind at stake. Now, each and every member of our society is required to reduce the impact on the global environment and enhance eco-consciousness and eco-friendliness. Pantech commits itself to promoting recycling of plastic resources in an effort to minimize environmental impact.

Management Philospohy

Pursue happiness for all employees by withholding the law of Sanpoyoshi as the management philosophy.

Based on the principle of "Sanpo Yoshi" (benefit for all three sides; the vendor, the customer, and society), Pantech seeks the greatest possible benefits for itself, waste-producing companies, and its partner plants.




View plastic waste as a precious resource and create new value with it. Strive for the construction of a sustainable circular economy and become indispensable to society.


A credo (Latin for "I believe") refers to one's belief or philosophy. We are convinced that only companies that have a credo (that is, a solid corporate philosophy) can survive these difficult times.
We believe in a participatory framework in which each and every employee is expected to share in and further the Pantech credo. Accordingly, Pantech's employees are advised to carry our "Credo" booklets with them so that they can be mindful of the credo as they go about their activities. We believe that a credo, not a management policy, is the best way to ensure that our corporate values permeate throughout our company at a collective and individual level.

We aim to be a self-motivated group that finds possibilities in everything.

2. Play the Central Role

4. All Employees are Managers

We always are conscious of reform and carry out work responsibly while considering efficiency and profitability.


1. Habit of Significant Attention

We always work having a diversified perspective with a bird’s eye, insect’s eye, and fish’s eye.

2. Demonstrate the Ability to Change

We devise ourselves everyday and take any change as an opportunity to act positively.

3. Complete Work with Action

We do our best with all one’s power. Speed! Speed! Speed!
