Message from the President

Atsushi Yamada

YIPHZ was founded in January 2015 through the merger of Yokohama Hoses &Coupling (Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. (YHCC) (a hose manufacturer) and Yokohama Hamatite (Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. (YHHC) (an adhesives and sealants manufacturer).
In November 2021, YIPHZ sold the Hamatite business in which it had been operating to the SIKA Group and became a company primarily engaged in the hose and piping business, primarily hydraulic hoses and automotive TOC piping.
We are implementing various improvements in order to meet customers’ needs, and as a company we are aiming to enhance our overall level of operation. As part of our environmental protection activities, we are implementing the “YOKOHAMA Forever Forest” tree-planting activity, and we are making a concerted effort to contribute to society through environmental protection.
In the future, besides striving to maintain the status of our products as being No. 1 in China for quality, we will also be aiming to be a widely respected company in the China market through our ongoing contributions to the local community.

Organizational Governance

Management is conducted to ensure there are no internal control issues, with the General Manager at the top, department manager in each department, and section managers stationed below them. Management based on regulations is implemented regarding the division duties including matters for the approval of the General Manager and matters for the approval of department managers in each field. Inspection through both internal and external audits is also conducted to improve compliance awareness.

Human Rights

There is no discrimination based on matters including the birthplace or gender of each employee. Furthermore, the company is not engaged in any illegal activities such as forced labor or child labor.

Labor Practices

We conduct broad recruitment in the Hangzhou area; we have established equal hiring opportunities and offer higher posts and positions within the company without discrimination based on gender or birthplace.

Less than 30 percent of our managers are women in section managers and above, and there are equal opportunities for promotion to higher posts and positions for both men and women. There are also frameworks for taking maternity leave, etc. as required.
We have already been approved to continue with ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System on July 8, 2022.

The Environment

Environmental management

Installed solar panels

The Environmental Council has been established as a corporate meeting body, at which all the company’s executives confirm the environmental data for the previous month, and verify and discuss whatever other environmental issues there are. There have been zero environmental accidents nor near misses. What is more, there have also been zero complaints, etc. forthcoming from local residents.
*ISO 14001 has been certified for external audit on July 9, 2020.
In addition, in order to reduce GHG emissions, we installed solar panels on the roof of the plant and started operating solar power generation in May 2020. With the introduction of solar power generation, we were able to reduce GHG emissions by 23%.

Forever Forest Activities

Although we were unable to conduct in-house tree planting activities in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, we conducted the fifth phase of tree planting activities on March 12, 2022.

Fair Operating Practices

Corruption prevention

A purchase order is issued by the purchasing department based on the request from each department, and the delivery is accepted and inspected by the requesting department. We purchase consumables and other items from vendors designated by the Chinese group companies at specified prices to ensure that the prices are appropriate. Additionally, as part of efforts to prevent fraud, internal rules have been put in place. In compliance with them, any purchase of CNY 2,000 or larger is ordered only when approved by general accounting department; the approving parties for orders are appointed based on purchase size; and big-ticket purchases are approved by the top management.

Consumer Issues
