Digital Transformation Initiatives

Rengo has formulated Vision 115, a medium-term vision which starts in FY2020 (and concludes in FY2024), in which we state the promotion of digital transformation (DX) that uses the latest information and communication technologies as one of the initiatives in our aim to become the world’s number one packaging provider.

In April 2020, we established the DX Promotion Investigation Committee, with the president as its chairman, to establish a system for promoting DX throughout the company.

In promoting DX, the Rengo Group is building a Cyber Physical System that combines digital technologies (Cyber) with the people who handle them (Physical) in our various operation processes—such as manufacturing, logistics, and sales—to create new customer value, increase innovative operation efficiency, and reform work styles.
