Kevin's Voice - Newport Beginnings - Message from the CEO

Today I would like to share why I started Newport. Though it has been 30 years since it was established, the reasons are as relevant today as they were then.

The first reason is having business opportunities: Prices for consumer goods such as calculators, toys, and books were high 30 years ago. By ordering in bulk, not keeping inventory and selling direct, we could offer lower prices.

The next reason is a desire to create a great company: Having previously worked for several international companies, I wanted to take the best from them -- along with some of my own ideas -- and build something better.

Finally, Newport establish an environment where all staff can grow: That meant providing meaningful work, an opportunity for self-development, and for everyone to have a greater purpose than just making money.

Over the years, our suppliers have changed, our sales partners have expanded, and we have added expertise in wholesale and e-commerce. That said, the core that makes Newport special remains:

  • We have fantastic products from Incoco, FW1, Dermalogica, and a range of service providers.

  • We are one of the most sustainable organizations in Japan.

  • We provide the opportunity for everyone to increase their skills and knowledge through their work, maintain & improve their health through the Newport Wellness Program, and contribute to making a sustainable world through our Environmental Management System and Environmental Management Plan teams.

I hope you all take advantage of the opportunities available in the weeks, months and years ahead.
