Celebrating the 125th anniversary



Tokyo, Japan - Apr. 9, 2021 - Penta-Ocean Construction is celebrating its 125th anniversary since its founding in Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture, in 1896.
Our initial business in marine civil engineering works has significantly expanded to land civil engineering and building construction works.
Beginning with the Suez Canal Dredging Project in 1961, our journey abroad has been marked by a number of memorable milestone projects, mostly based in Singapore, since our foray into Singapore in 1964.

Under our ESG-oriented management philosophy of "Affiliating with society," "Creating a nature-rich environment," and "Cherishing a pioneering spirit”, we strive to become a "genuine global general contractor" with distinctive strengths in port, coastal and waterfront areas and overseas.
A “genuine global general contractor" is a company, free from barriers between civil engineering and building construction businesses as well as between domestic and overseas businesses, and is an "advanced company in Diversity and Inclusion" where diverse human resources, regardless of nationality or gender, can work together with vigour and enthusiasm as well as mutual respect.

We will continue to promote “Digital” and “Green” initiatives with an enterprising spirit as part of our corporate DNA. Through implementing digital transformation, we will bolster the work style reform, and the productivity improvement for realizing the reform. Similarly, we are taking on the challenges in the green energy field, including the construction of “offshore wind farms” and “zero energy buildings”.

Through ensuring reliable safety and quality backed by advanced technologies, we will deliver the joy and excitement of creating, (building). For Penta-Ocean Construction, an era of "new challenge" begins, beyond organizational barriers and borders.
